Crystalline Waterproofing Technology
Although crystalline waterproofing technology has been around for more than 3 decades, it is still considered "state-of-the-art" and has only recently been embraced by the construction industry as a superior replacement for conventional membranes. Crystalline waterproofing systems rely on a technology that turns porous concrete in to an impermeable barrier. The result is a structure with reduced cracking, self-sealing and waterproofing abilities which provides a powerful defense against water damage and corrosion of reinforcing steel.
Concrete is one of the most commonly used building and construction materials. However, due to its composition, is often susceptible to damage and deterioration from water and chemical penetration. Concrete can be considered as a micro porous and permeable material. Porosity refers to the amount of voids left in concrete, is expressed as a percentage of the total volume of a material. Permeability expresses that how well the voids are connected.
Therefore, these qualities results pathways to form that allow the ingress and movement of water into, and through, along with the cracking that occurs due to shrinkage. Thus, these voids, pores and capillaries become the major sources for water leakages from the concrete structures.
This technique is use in terrace wall,water tank,treatment plants,lagoons etc.
