Waterproof Magazine – Fall 2010 Kryton International Inc., a manufacturer of integral waterproofing products, has launched a product that will benefit brick and block construction worldwide. In addition to obvious applications, Kryton’s Krystol Mortar Admixture (KMA) can transform rendering mortars, usually applied to exterior building surfaces as finishes, into waterproof protection for buildings as well.
Krystol Mortar Admixture is based on Kryton’s Krystol technology, which has been used for waterproofing concrete for more than three decades. When added to concrete mixes, Kryton’s proprietary chemical formula reacts to form millions of tiny needle-like crystals that block the capillary pores and cracks in concrete.
