Krystol International Inc.’s, Krystol Internal Membrane (KIM) crystalline admixture offers a dampproofing solution by turning the concrete into a water barrier. When combined with water, KIM’s proprietary chemicals react to form millions of needle-like crystals within the concrete. These crystals form and fill the capillary pores and microcracks, blocking the passage of water and waterborne chemicals. If new minor cracks form and allow water to enter, the chemicals will reactivate to form additional crystals to block the ingress of water. KIM is also an environmentally friendly alternative for creating a watertight concrete structure. This admixture extends the life of concrete structures, and does not preclude the concrete to be recycled at the end of the life cycle.
