Tell us about your key products and manufacturing facilities.
While the Head Office of Kryton Buildmat Co. Pvt. Ltd. is located at New Delhi, its manufacturing facility is located at Dharuhera Industrial Area, Haryana. We have two main systems.
KIM (for New Concrete Structures): KIM (Krystol Internal Membrane) is the world’s leading and original integral crystalline concrete waterproofing admixture. KIM eliminates the need for conventional external waterproofing membranes. It is the recipient of the “Most Innovative Product” award given out annually at the World of Concrete tradeshow. In addition KIM is the first concrete admixture to be certified by the International Code Council – Evaluation Service (ICC-ES) as a Chemical Admixture Used in Concrete (AC198). The KIM admixture can be added at the construction site, or at the concrete batching plant. Since it’s mixed right into the concrete, there’s no waiting around for concrete waterproofing application that is normally required in other systems. The next operation can begin as soon as the concrete sets.
Krystol T1/T2 – Waterproofing System for Existing Concrete Structures (Surface Treatment): The World’s only permanent, in-depth, surface-applied waterproofing system, the Krystol Crack Repair System is a cementitious, chemically reactive treatment that stops concrete cracks in their tracks and turns existing concrete into a permanent and powerful waterproof barrier. When applied to concrete, crystalline chemicals diffuse deep into concrete and become a permanent part of the structure. Millions of needle-like crystals begin to grow and spread throughout the concrete pores sealing the cracks and permanently blocking the movement of water in all directions. These crystals then remain dormant until another crack forms, at which time they will react with incoming water to self-seal the crack and maintaining a watertight seal.

What are the advantages of products being offered by your company?
Kryton’s Krystol waterproofing systems rely on a revolutionary crystalline technology that turns porous concrete into an impermeable barrier. The result is a structure with reduced cracking, self-sealing and waterproofing abilities which provides a powerful defence against water damage and corrosion of reinforcing steel.
Whether it is new construction, upgrading an existing structure or repairing cracks, Krystol helps to build quality, reliability and cost effectiveness into the concrete.
