When a cement particle hydrates, it becomes a hard, solid mass. Crystalline waterproofing adds a second set of chemicals to that mixture, which only react when your concrete gets wet. The rest of the time, they are dormant and unnoticeable. But if these two chemical groups are brought together in the presence of moisture, the end product is a non-soluble crystalline structure — essentially, waterproof armor that reinforces the concrete and prevents liquid from permeating its surface.
Any time that moisture comes in contact with the pores, capillaries, and shrinkage cracks of your structure, it becomes fuel to feed additional growth. Crystal formations seal up the cracks and protect these vulnerable spaces, becoming an integral part of your concrete in the process. Beyond keeping out water, they improve its overall strength and increase its lifespan, among other benefits. With just one simple solution, all of your structure’s weak points are reinforced, plus an extra layer of protection against corrosive elements is added.
