  • Manufacturer and distributor of crystalline concrete waterproofing systems Family-run business based in Vancouver, Canada Established in 1973 Developed the world’s first crystalline waterproofing admixture – KIM Sales in over 47 countries including China, India, Dubai, the US and Canada
  • Lengthens the lifespan of aging concrete infrastructure and buildings, improves overall aesthetics offers an environmentally sustainable alternative to major rehabilitation or total replacement
  • Governments around the world have been introducing incentive programs to build and repair infrastructure as a way of stimulating local economies particularly prominent in developed countries such as Canada, China, the Asia Pacific, and the Middle East (where major development of the economies has occurred over the past half-decade or so). Developed a system that would make engineers’ lives easier as they tackled these projects Makes life easier for maintenance engineers and specifiers with a complete and compatible system that has been developed to work flawlessly together No need to piece together a solution based on various products or resolve conflicting application instructions, which often occurs when different manufacturers’ products are used.
  • BC Hydro’s Bridge River powerhouses, the La Joie Dam and Generating Station, and the Seton Generating Station, third largest development in the BC Hydro, operation and upkeep of these facilities is important for supplying power to the people of BC. majority of the infrastructure and facilities being built around the 1950s, concrete is showing signs of aging, including cracks, spalls, AAR deterioration, and wetting-drying/freeze-thaw deterioration. could see increased downtime and maintenance costs, as well as face huge replacement costs over the next several years if they were not proactively looking at ways to restore and protect this concrete. has been using Kryton products since the mid-1980s interested in products that would provide good protection and provide a nice aesthetic finish.   SOLUTION Early on, Kryton trials were based on a modified version of the current Krystol T1/T2 system. However, after numerous brainstorming sessions and formulation changes, Kryton’s Product Development Team came up with the idea to develop a new complete system for restoring and protecting concrete.
  • In the past, above grade structures have been repaired with these products These methods have their benefits but they tend to be short term answers to potentially large problems Not effective in addressing cracks, spalls, honeycoming, water intrusion and other restoration needs Can also be more expensive than originally planned – ongoing repair costs, unexpected facility downtime and multiple product manufacturers giving conflicting instructions can take up time and money
  • Extend the lifespan & provides a long-term solution Reduce maintenance costs and postpone replacement Avoid major disruptions in building operations Increase environmental sustainability Eliminate hidden costs from facility downtime and disruption to workplace/public Enhances resistance to waterborne contaminants and chemicals such as sulfates, chlorides and acids Improve the aesthetics Even substrate colour and smoothness Superior aging quality when exposed to UV radiation & thermal cycling versus liquid coatings Choice of gray or white colour Resist mildew and moss formation Resist rust stains and efflorescence Protect reinforcing steel from corrosion Repair and waterproof cracks Resilient surface with resistance to thermal cycling Protect against waterborne contaminants Protects against water intrusion Easy-to-use system Easy to install by trained applicators Doesn’t require any specialized equipment Complete system for repairing, restoring and protecting from a single manufacturer Can be applied to damp concrete Addresses all aspects of the repair and restoration (i.e., repair cracks, restore the surfaces, protect with long-term water-repellency) Technical support and on-site training provided by Kryton
  • Above-grade concrete structures Hydroelectric, transportation and water containment infrastructure (e.g., dams, spillways, power houses) Special buildings (e.g., churches and mosques)
  • The first step in the Hydrostop Restore & Protect System Non-shrink, waterproof grout Contains proven Krystol ® technology - - when in contact with water, proprietary chemicals produce crystals that grow and block capillary pores and cracks to stop water ingress
  • Repairs cracks and defects in the concrete including honeycombing or holes Dry powder that is easily mixed with water and applied by trowel
  • 2-part polymerized cementitious topping mortar Supplied as a pre-measured kit – one part dry powder and one part liquid polymer – easy and error-free mixing
  • Applied as a slurry Creates durable barrier covering the entire concrete surface Provides semi-aesthetic finish with even colour and texture
  • Clear, water-based sprayable liquid Blend of high-performance silane and siloxane compounds
  • Activates a water repellent effect for long-term protection Dries invisible Self-cleaning and improved graffiti resistance
  • The new Hydrostop Restore & Protect system includes our By Your Side support & training and is backed by our extensive third party testing & certification.
