Krystol T1 & T2 system is a crystalline based surface applied waterproofing treatment for concrete and cementitious structures that is used to protect against the ingress and leakage of water. It is a dry powder, that when mixed with water becomes a coating that is applied to the interior or exterior sides of a concrete structure. A surface applied waterproofing treatment for new and existing pre-cast or placed concrete and masonry block. Krystol T1 and T2 grows deeper into the concrete struture, and outperform direct competitors for waterproofing properties in independent side-by-side tests.
How It Works – Crystalline Waterproofing
Krystol T1 & T2 is an “in-depth” concrete treatment that is applied as a slurry or spray to the surface of existing concrete structures. In the presence of water, the special chemicals will react with the concrete to grow millions of long, needle-shaped crystals deep into the concrete mass. These surface applied waterproofing crystals permanently block and prevent the passage of water through capillary pores, micro-cracks and joints. The concrete itself becomes the waterproof layer and the surface treatment is not required to remain intact for the system to be effective. As a result, the Krystol T1 & T2 System is extremely durable and will last the lifetime of the concrete. The system is comprised of two products Krystol T1 and Krystol T2.

Concrete is one of the world’s oldest and most durable building materials; and water is its most dangerous aggressor. Without adequate waterproofing, both the structural integrity and profits of a structure are at risk. Kryton takes the risk out of concrete waterproofing. We develop, manufacture and market products that waterproof, repair and protect concrete structures. Only we do it permanently. Our technology transforms concrete into a waterproof barrier. Short term, you’ll shave weeks off construction schedules, cut waterproofing costs up to 40% and maximize your building footprint. Long term, you’ll avoid leaks, discoloration, and costly callbacks. Kryton is the inventor of the crystalline waterproofing admixture and has been waterproofing concrete since 1973. The impact of our technology is evident in the world’s most challenging construction projects. From immense hydrostatic pressure in the deepest underground pits, to the rooftops of the highest skyscrapers; we’ve provided solutions for them all, from Argentina to Australia, China to Croatia, the UAE to the USA. Today, Kryton has offices around the globe, over fifty distributors in forty countries and operates the largest concrete permeability testing laboratory in North America. As Kryton was built on the spirit of science and research, it is still at the core of our business today.
