Concrete Waterproofing Using the Penetron System

PENETRON's waterproofing effect is provided by the reaction of the various chemical components contained within the solution when combined within the matrix of the concrete. The chemicals penetrate deep into the capillary tracts of the concrete by pressure of osmosis. Varied chemicals combine to form crystals which seal the capillaries and shrinkage cracks to drive out moisture. This process is performed with or against the pressure of water.

In the absence of moisture, PENETRON components lie dormant. Should moisture be contacted again at any time, the chemical action and sealing process reoccur automatically and advance further, deep into the concrete. PENETRON chemicals will continuously seal and reseal due to their chemical nature. Crystalline growth from capillary waterproofing has been measured almost one meter from the point of application. PENETRON is 100% compatible with concrete, brick, mortar and stone. PENETRON should also be applied to concrete and block structures where potential risk of water or chemical attack is possible and thus ensures permanent waterproofing and protection. Its capability of being applied from either the positive side (side exposed to water) or the negative side (side opposite the water) allows for all waterproofing requirements.

PENETRON is recommended for use in any concrete
or block structure where it is required to keep water in or out.
