Waterproof your concrete with assurance and durability...

Concrete is known to be strong, durable and perfect for both utilitarian and decorative purposes worldwide. However, concrete is also porous, permeable and prone to cracking, therefore there is needs for concrete waterproofing. Water while essential in concrete production, placement, and curing is at the same time corrosive to the material, because once it fulfills its role in the production and other processes, it becomes an enemy to concrete.

Exposure of concrete to water slowly reduces the permanence/durability of concrete structures, thus raising the cost of maintenance of bridges, buildings and other facilities. Water’s toxic effects on concrete structures can be avoided through the use of waterproof concrete technology, which efficiently improves the durability and lifespan of concrete structures, hence reducing long-term maintenance costs.

Krystol Mortar Admixture (KMA) is a hydrophilic crystalline admixture used to provide long-term protection of masonry mortars and concrete masonry units against water and waterborne contaminants by reducing permeability and absorption of the mortar.


KMA contains Krystol technology. When added to cementitious mortars or concrete masonry units, Krystol chemically reacts with water and un-hydrated cement particles to form insoluble needle-shaped crystals that fill capillary pores and micro-cracks in the concrete and block the pathways for water and waterborne contaminants. Any moisture introduced over the lifespan of the concrete will initiate crystallization, ensuring permanent waterproofing protection.


• Simplifies installation and shortens the construction cycle

• Eliminates the upfront building and labor costs specific to surface applied sealers

• Delivers a permanent solution that lasts the lifetime of the mortar

• Increases durability, decreasing building maintenance and repair costs

• Improves aesthetics by maintaining the original appearance for lasting attractiveness

• Provides superior performance enhancing your reputation for high quality work


Use KMA to provide permanent protection for:

• Rendering and plastering mortar (including stucco and other thin topping mixes) over concrete masonry walls or other prepared substrates

• Masonry mortar (i.e., mortar that goes between the masonry units)

• Concrete masonry units (i.e., blocks when they are manufactured)
