An innovative concrete waterstop application is changing the way concrete construction joints are waterproofed. Known as the Krystol Waterstop System™, the application replaces conventional waterstop barriers, saving construction time and costs while providing two lines of defense to protect construction joints.
The Krystol Waterstop System uses two cementitious, Krystol-based products: Krystol Waterstop Grout™ and Krystol Waterstop Treatment™. A 5-cm wide, 3-cm high (2″ x 1½ “) triangle-shaped strip of Krystol Waterstop Grout is created along the edge of a concrete slab or wall at the site where a new wall is to be poured. Once the grout has cured, Krystol Waterstop Treatment is applied and the concrete wall can be poured as normal.
The Krystol Waterstop System offers a number of benefits over conventional barrier systems:
A worldwide patent for the application is currently pending. For more information, visit www.kryton.com, or call 1-800-267-8280.
