Liwa Centre is a residential building located on Hamdan Street in Abu Dhabi. The area faces significant ground water pressure. Due to the high hydrostatic pressure several leaks in the elevator pits appeared after construction. At best, the cracks are just an unattractive nuisance but at worst, they lead to leaks that can damage the interior of the building, corrode steel reinforcements and ultimately shorten the life of the building. Several attempts to repair the leaks using different materials proved unsuccessful.
After several attempts to repair the leaking elevator pits, the management team decided to try Kryton’s Krystol Leak Repair System. The Krystol Leak Repair System was successful where previous systems had failed.
The Krystol Leak Repair System is different from other systems as it:
• Protects from any direction – even against high water pressure
• Can be applied to either side of the concrete (eliminating the need for perimeter digging)
• Protects reinforcing steel against corrosion
To date, the Krystol Leak Repair System has stopped the leaks in the elevator pit.
The Krystol Leak Repair System is a permanent crystalline waterproofing solution used for repairing leaking cracks, holes and joints found in concrete. It reliably stops high water flow, even under high-hydrostatic pressure, and outperforms injection systems. Repairing leaks is a simple 3-step process that involves…
