  • 5. FEATURE:The science of Krystol ® TechnologyK rystol® technology is based on principles that are very similar to the processes that occur during the hydrationand hardening of concrete. Cementis mainly made up of several calcium Microscopic, needle-like crystals fill the naturally occurring pores and capillary tracts of concrete for guaranteed waterproof structures. The reason that hydration can continue, are hydration crystals, but they aresilicates. When cement particles are mixedwith water, a chemical reaction occurs seemingly indefinitely, is because only a not amorphous like cement hydrationwhereby these calcium silicates combine portion of the cement has reacted during crystals. Instead, they form into awith the water to form new compounds. the initial hydration and hardening of the crystalline structure of long hexagonalThe new compounds are calcium silicate concrete. A significant portion of each prisms that extend through and fill thehydrate (CSH) and calcium hydroxide. cement particle remains un-reacted long capillary voids and micro-cracks of the after the concrete has reached its design concrete.

  • 6. RegionalReport NORTH AMERICA Project CityCentre in Las Vegas, Nevada is a $7.8 billion project that is a mixed-use 76- acre (1,560,500 m²) complex, currently under construction by MGM Mirage. Its modern urban design by Ehrenkrantz Eckstut and Kuhn Architects will feature multiple high-rise buildings as well as its own retail and entertainment district and convention centre, scheduled to open in late 2009. Kryton is pleased to be waterproofing many areas of the project, including the cooling tower, convention centre, Sinatra Garage and valet tunnel using KIM® and Krystol T1/T2®. Left: Construction of the Project CityCenter in June 2007 Kryton’s second year exhibiting at the Big 5 trade show in Dubai, U.A.E. MIDDLE EAST included an educational seminar on “Improving Concrete Durability through the use of Crystalline Waterproofing admixtures”. The increasing popularity of concrete waterproofing using crystalline admixtures attracted the attention of several Gulf industry publications, such as Arab Construction World, Gulf Construction, the Gulf Times Newspaper and Construction World Gulf to feature Krystol® products and projects. An example illustrating the importance of below-grade waterproofing can be seen in the recent completion of the Al Mashfa Private Hospital in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia. By using Kryton’s integral crystalline waterproofing, the developer was able to overcome unexpected challenges, such as the underground lake encountered during excavation. (full story on page 18) In Spring of 2007, Kryton opened up its first office in the Middle East to provide regional support to partners and customers.

Kryton International’s concrete waterproofing admixture, KIM®-HS was recently certified by the Dubai Municipality. The certificate states that Kryton’s KIM®-HS admixture may be used without the requirement for additional membranes or other waterproofing systems. It certifies that KIM®-HS is suitable for use in potable water and is effective for waterproofing concrete. Right: KIM®-HS being added to the concrete mix www.kryton.com
  • 7. RegionalReport The Marina Bay Sands is Singapore’s first casino, being ASIA PACIFIC developed by Las Vegas Sands. In addition to the casino, other key components include three hotel towers consisting of 2,500 rooms and a rooftop parking lot, a science museum, retail and entertainment plazas. Kryton’s KIM® admixture will be used in the hotel blocks to waterproof the below-grade foundation and provide a permanent, application-free solution. This past summer, Kryton held its first annual Asia Pacific Distributor Retreat in sunny Kota Kinabalu, Sabah, Malaysia. The exotic getaway created an opportunity for the Kryton team and partners to share their experiences and expertise in the crystalline waterproofing market, as well as training and team-building exercises to further encourage “By Your Side” service and support. In Fall of 2007, Kryton opened its first Asia Pacific office in Singapore, led by Mr. Ivan Tan as Territory Manager, Southeast Asia.

  • 12. FEATURE STORYDo Blind-sided applicationshave your back to the wall?Krystol® waterproofing technology eliminates the need to access the exterior surface of the structure.Traditional waterproofing methods encourage the use of positive-sidewaterproofing during construction. However, this requires access to the outsidewall of the concrete structure. When access is restricted, blind or negative-sideapplications are often necessary. Unlike old-fashioned external membranes,which rely on an additional hurdle to shield the concrete from moisture, Krystol®actually transforms the concrete into a water-resistant barrier.That’s because Krystol becomes an integral part of the concrete matrix whenapplied to existing concrete or added to the mix at time of batching. www.kryton.com
