Our Ready-Mix partners face challenges to maximize concrete performance, maintain margins and stay competitive. We help our clients with a with best-in-class concrete waterproofing and durability enhancement solutions for greater value-added profitability on every cube of concrete.
What makes us different is our combination of technology, technical support and warranty makes for successful projects and well-supported customers that keep coming back to ready-mix admixture solutions.
Are you looking to:
• Maximize profit per unit
• Develop new revenue streams
• Offer your customers high performing concrete mixes
• Have access leading edge technical expertise to ensure your success
The original crystalline admixture, Krystol Internal Membrane™ (KIM®) is chemically different than its competitors. The fundamental difference lies in the chemical reaction that takes place to create crystal growth.
Other admixtures react with calcium hydroxide, a by-product of concrete hydration. Modern mix design typically contain supplementary cementious materials that also react with calcium hydroxide competing for the same properties. The result? A depletion of reaction materials affecting performance.
KIM, on the other hand, reacts with un-hydrated cement particles which remain throughout the life of the concrete structure resulting in effective and long-lasting performance.
With Hard-Cem®, you have the opportunity to add a completely new product offering to the mix. The only integral hardener on the market Hard-Cem will allow to sell against dry-shake hardeners. Not only does this open up new revenue opportunities but eliminates the use of dry-shake hardeners on your projects that can impact the quality of your concrete.
For your clients you are offering them a way to the time and money associated with surface applied hardeners and providing them with a solution that applies the hardening properties throughout the entire slab. With over 15 years of proven performance in over 80 million square feet of concrete, you can be confident in this value-added solution.
For more than 45 years, we have worked with architects, engineers, and builders to build dry and durable structures.
The developers needed a waterproofing system that could guarantee permanent protection from water penetration. Having had success with KIM before, the concrete producing company Lafarge recommended the admixture and the developers found they were able to shorten their construction schedule significantly.
The Vancouver Airport Authority counted on Kryton to provide their airport’s largest expansion with permanent waterproofing at little risk. Kryton did so using KIM alongside assistance from Kryton’s Krystol Assurance Program, which provided an in-depth design review, site training and inspections, and a 10-year labor and material warranty for leaks
A sales representative of a local concrete producing company in Vancouver, Canada, wanted a new driveway that could withstand multiple freeze-thaw cycles, de-icers, and acid rain. Having sold Hard-Cem before, he knew how well it could increase concrete wear life and hired Kryton to apply it to his driveway concrete mix.
We chose the integral KIM additive because of its easy one-step application and because of the insurance Kryton added to the prohibition of water intrusion…the one-step nature of KIM saved valuable time in our construction schedule (approx. three weeks). This is a field-tested product that really worked, giving everyone involved peace of mind.
