CRYSTALLINE STRUCTURAL SYSTEMS
Concrete is porous. Its tunnel-like capillaries are a natural part of its mass, and permit the passage of water and other liquids. By means of diffusion, the reactive chemicals in CRYSTALEX products use water as a migrating medium to enter and travel down the capillaries of the concrete. This process participate a chemical reaction between CRYSTALEX, moisture and the by-products of cement hydration, forming a new non-soluble crystalline structure. This integral structure fills the capillary tracts rendering the concrete waterproof. In this way the concrete becomes impermeable throughout its life.
