Construction World -Volume 4, No. 6 – September 2004
Now, the unique waterproofing needs of concrete tanked structures are no longer a concern, thanks to Kryton.
The Kryton Group of Companies is dedicated to meeting the demands placed on the construction industry for durable, long-term infrastructure worldwide. It develops, manufactures and markets a wide range of products designed to waterproof, repair and protect concrete structures.
Founded in 1973 by current Chairman of the Board RG Yuers, Kryton has grown to become a multi-million dollar global company that recognized the need for developing products that performed in the field consistently, and has supported these products in the field with a focus on real-world applications.
In addition to a wide range of commercial and residential coating systems, Kryton developed the revolutionary Krystol™ concrete waterproofing systems – the flagship product line in an array of more than 150 chemical construction products.
