Vancouver-based Kryton International, which specialises in crystalline concrete waterproofing, has acquired Calgary-based Cementec Industries, a manufacturer of concrete additive solutions
for the construction and oil & gas industries.
Cementec has developed Hard-Cem, the integral concrete hardening admixture that provides concrete with excellent resistance to abrasion and erosion. With this admixture, concrete floors and infrastructure are said to last up to six times longer than untreated concrete. Cementec also manufactures Silica Fume products that are used to densify and strengthen concrete. These can be used in conjunction with the Krystol Internal Membrane (KIM) system from Kryton to provide Smart Concrete solutions that will save time while providing durability.
The concrete solutions from Cementec “increase infrastructure’s service life and eliminate exposure to harmful dust,” said Kari Yuers, CEO of Kryton. “Hard-Cem removes quality control issues and provides increased design flexibility.”
“Hard-Cem and Silica Fume will extend our product offerings in integral concrete durability, erosion and abrasion protection. We intend to be a go-to solutions provider to an industry that
is increasingly concerned about protecting and extending the lifespan of concrete structures,” added Kevin Yuers, VP of product development at Kryton.
“This is a perfect match of expertise and a shared mission in providing unique solutions, exemplary customer service and market leadership,” said Farid Remtulla, president of Cementec. “Kryton will offer global exposure for Cementec products.”
