The Cambie Street bridge spans an arm of the Fraser River that separates downtown Vancouver and Vancouver. Shortly after the bridge was constructed, lateral cracks developed full-depth through the deck slab. Extensive water leakage occurred through these cracks during periods of rain. Stopping the water from leaking was a concern for two reasons: the underside marine view of the bridge was important to marine traffic and corrosion control was required by engineers.
In 1984, Kryton was contracted to provide the materials to repair the leaking cracks. Krystol T1 & Krystol T2 Waterproofing System were applied to the top side of the bridge over the cracked areas. Within 3 days there were no more leaks. To date, the bridge is watertight.
Krystol T2 is a surface-applied crystalline slurry treatment that transforms new or existing concrete into a permanent waterproofing barrier.
