Krystol Internal Membrane (KIM) KIM is a waterproofing admixture for concrete. If you are building a new concrete structure, for example slabs and walls for below grade parking/basements, swimming pools, pits, or similar applications subject to water pressure, you can add KIM to the concrete mix. By improving the impermeability of the concrete, you can protect against moisture transmission, chemical attack, and the corrosion of reinforcing steel.
Krystol T1 & T2 Utilitising the same crystalline growth technology as KIM, Krystol T1 & T2 are surface applied treatments to existing concrete structures. The product is mixed with potable water into a slurry and applied by brush. In general, the first coat is using T1 and the subsequent coat utilises T2.
Krystol Baricote Baricote is a surface applied treatment for concrete that has cracks, holes or joints that are leaking. It can also be used as a waterproof plaster on masonry walls.

Krystol Plug This is a very fast setting hydraulic cement for plugging actively leaking cracks. Generally the process involves chasing out the leaking crack, mixing the Krystol Plug with potable water to form a plasticine or putty consistency, and pushing this into the crack. It sets very quickly so that it is not washed out by the water flow.
Hydrophilic Butyl Rubber for in-situ concrete. Hyperseal BR is a high performance, hydrophilic butyl rubber waterstop, which swells to form a long-lasting water-tight compression seal. The swelling action is the result between water and hydrophilic groups which are part of the Hyperseal BR molecular structure.
PVC waterstop profiles with or without hydrophilic rubber, for concrete construction joints or expansion joints.
Hyperseal D Series waterstops have been specially designed to provide significant advantage over co-extruded hydrophilic waterstops. This new system enables the PVC waterstop to be fixed on-site in the usual way and provides the additional benefit of exposing two hydrophilic elements by removing the security tape just before the concrete in poured, thus avoiding the common problem of hydrophilic pre-swell on site.
