How to work

PENETRON® Cementitious Capillary Waterproofing Products are formulations consisting of common cement, quartz, sand (of special grade) and multiple activating chemicals that provide the most effective permanent concrete waterproofing system available.

HOW IT WORKS:

   1. The PENETRON® chemicals penetrate into the the capillary tracts of the concrete by pressure of osmosis, Brownian movement and dry particle reactions.
   2. The active ingredients of PENETRON® react with various concrete minerals forming insoluble crystals which fill out cracks, pores and voids up to a width of at least 400 microns. This crystalline growth will eventually take place deep inside the concrete structure and has been found as deep as nearly 1 meter from the point of application.
   3. Water molecules (and a wide range of chemicals) are no longer able to pass through the concrete. However, air can still pass allowing the concrete to breathe and avoiding vapor pressure to build.
   4. In the absence of further moisture, PENETRON® components lie dormant. Should moisture recur at any time, the sealing process resumes automatically and advances ever deeper into the concrete.

PENETRON® continuously seals and reseals. once applied, the effect of PENETRON® is permanent, and is backed up by the warranty of our ISO 9002 quality standard.

 

1. Coarse-grained elongated crystals and fine-grained needle-like crystals can be seen lining a crack. These crystals will completely fill up and waterproof the crack.  

2. Same crack as above taken by BEI showing Penetron crystal formation sealing it.

3. BEI close up showing elongated crystals and fine needle-like crystals in the crack.
