TRADITIONAL WATERPROOFING MEMBRANES ARE FAILING TO MEET YOUR SPECIFICATIONS

It’s not the membranes’ fault. It’s the fact that membranes must be installed flawlessly. And flawless installation is extremely difficult. Many factors work against membrane success: weather, surface irregularities, inconsistent labor, and damage from other trades. Krystol Internal Membrane™ (KIM®) is added to the concrete and replaces the need for surface applied membranes.

SURFACE APPLIED MEMBRANES VS
KRYSTOL INTERNAL MEMBRANE (KIM)

Kryton’s Krystol Internal Membrane (KIM) crystalline admixture has been outperforming surface applied membranes for over 35 years. From the simple process of adding KIM to the concrete at the time of batching to lowering the permeability and improving the concrete’s ability to self-seal, KIM projects require less maintenance and last longer than those using traditional surface applied waterproofing membranes. 

Proven Waterproofing Performance

  • Used successfully in high-risk projects around the world for 35+ years
  • Withstands 460 ft. (200 PSI) of hydrostatic pressure
  • Cannot wear, tear, delaminate or deteriorate because it is added to the concrete mix
  • Permanently self-seals micro-cracks

Shortens Construction Schedules

  • Eliminates the need for installing a surface applied membrane
  • Added directly to the concrete during the batching process for easy and efficient installation
  • Removes delays due to weather or scheduling of a sub-trade
  • Able to backfill sooner

Improves Design Creativity

  • Earn up to 6 valuable LEED points
  • Maximizes building footprint
  • The only way to effectively waterproof blind-wall applications
  • Allows for freedom of design

Saves Time and Money

  • Reduces maintenance and repair costs
  • Increases your revenue with a larger building footprint
  • Reduces costs with a shorter construction schedule
  • Extends the service life of concrete

NOT ALL CRYSTALLINE ADMIXTURES ARE THE SAME

Crystalline admixtures are not the same. KIM is the best performing, and most reliable waterproofing solution available. Understanding the differences ensure you have made an informed decision resulting in watertight structures for life.

Krystol Technology is CHEMICALLY UNIQUE
  • KIM reacts with un-hydrated cement (not free lime) in concrete and continues to enable the growth of more crystals, ensuring long-term protection
  • Long needle-shaped crystals grow deeper, fill smaller spaces, and resist more water pressure
  • KIM is the original crystalline admixture and designed differently from competitors
KIM has SUPERIOR PERFORMANCE
  • Highest level of permeability reduction and most dependable self-sealing performance
  • Best dry shrinkage and restrained shrinkage crack reduction
  • Only admixture proven to protect against corrosion of reinforced steel, as evidenced within the University of Hawaii’s 10-year Corrosion Study
The COMPLETE WATERPROOFING SYSTEM
  • Every construction detail is covered to create a watertight structure
  • Entire waterproofing system comes from one manufacturer, ensuring ease of use and expertise
  • Kryton is a one stop shop for all your concrete waterproofing and durability needs
Kryton has the MOST EXPERIENCE
  • Inventor of the world’s first crystalline admixture
  • Offers the best warranty in category with many projects outliving their original warranties
  • 35+ years of successful waterproofing of high-risk projects around the world

Make an informed choice. Only KIM can reliably waterproof your concrete structure for life.
