Krytonite Swelling Waterstop is part of a new waterproof joint design that combines both swelling waterbar with crystalline technology to achieve the ultimate protection for concrete construction joints against penetration of water, even under extreme hydrostatic pressures. The unique synthetic rubber technology swells many times more than ordinary rubber or bentonite products. It achieves superior swelling performance even when exposed to salt water or when used in chloride or sulfate contaminated soils. Despite its extraordinary swelling ability, the product is specially engineered so that swelling action occurs after concrete has gained sufficient strength to resist the swelling pressure created. Its innovative trapezoid shape resists being dislodged by falling concrete or shotcrete. Its bright yellow color makes inspection and verification easy, and it is fully compatible with Kryton’s Krystol Internal Membrane (KIM) system.
Krystol Repair Grout is part of a new simplified crystalline repair system for stopping leaks through cracks, holes, and joints in concrete. It contains Kryton’s unique crystalline waterproofing technology. As part of the Krystol Crack Repair System, the repair grout allows reliable repairs to be made from the negative side and avoids the hit-and-miss challenges experienced when attempting injection methods. Krystol Repair Grout is non-shrink and highly resistant to cracking, even under extreme conditions. It is fully compatible with Kryton’s Krystol Internal Membrane (KIM) system.
