Kryton’s proprietary Krystol technology turns porous concrete into a permanent waterproof barrier, eliminating the need for physical waterproofing membrane systems. When applied to concrete, Krystol creates a chemical reaction that causes millions of tiny crystals to grow, filling the spaces between concrete particles and permanently blocking the movement of water and waterborne contaminants. When cracks form in concrete, Krystol reacts with incoming water to grow additional crystals, self-sealing the cracks and eliminating the need for costly repairs.
