Krytonite Swelling Waterstop is specially designed for sealing construction joints in concrete construction. Concrete construction joints are such vulnerable areas, and play a vital role in fortifying concrete structures. As a direct route to the rebar and to the inside of the structure, how easily water and moisture can enter through these areas can make or break a project’s budget and/or timeline.
Krytonite is a non-bentonite flexible hydrophilic swelling waterstop that is fully compatible with Kryton’s Krystol Internal Membrane (KIM) Admixture System as it provides a crystalline barrier. It is suitable for use with regular ground water as well as salt and sulfate contaminated water. When in contact with water, Krytonite Swelling Waterstop will swell up to 1000% of its original volume to seal the joint. Krytonite is a synthetic rubber polymer that is extremely durable and will not deteriorate or lose performance, even when subjected to repeated wetting and drying cycles. Krytonite offers unrivalled swelling performance, superior cohesion properties and easy installation.
