Choose Smart Concrete

A city’s concrete infrastructure plays a crucial role to the well-being of both families and businesses. After all, it’s what makes it possible for them to access the basic necessities of life, such as clean water and energy. But to keep this access going, infrastructure requires engineering solutions that extend its service life as much as possible while keeping its construction and operational costs low. On top of that, there’s a higher demand for infrastructure to be sustainably built to mitigate any impact it might have on global warming. All of which can make infrastructure projects a challenge to construct, especially when there are concerns surrounding concrete monitoring, water ingress, chemical attack, abrasion, erosion, and corrosion.

Overcome it all with Smart Concrete solutions. These time-proven and third-party tested products make it easy for engineers to develop infrastructure that meets all those needs while also providing it with reliable quality assurance from concrete monitoring, permanent waterproofing and leak repairs, and abrasion and erosion resistance. They also come with expert technical support to guarantee that the infrastructure requirements are fulfilled in the most optimal way.

Concrete Waterproofing

For 40 years, Kryton’s KIM® waterproofing admixture has given engineers and governments the ability to protect concrete infrastructure from water ingress, chemical attack, and corrosion.

It does all this with the following proven advantages:

•  Having decades of testing by authorities such as the University of Hawai‘i

•  Using proprietary technology to reduce concrete permeability by 80% or more

•  Eliminating pathways for water and waterborne contaminants

•  Reducing the chances of chemical attack and corrosion

•  Being non-toxic and safe for potable water with NSF/ANSI 61 certification

•  Enhancing the quality of infrastructure concrete

•  Minimizing the number of concrete repair and replacement sessions

•  Decreasing how much carbon-intensive cement is used

•  Lowering overall operational costs and lifetime carbon footprint for projects

•  Having a 25-year warranty and tech support

•  Working with the Krystol® Waterstop System to protect joints and details

All of this can even be further protected with Kryton’s Krystol Assurance Program™. This offers a 10-year performance warranty that guarantees any areas treated with Krystol® technology like KIM or some products from the Krystol Waterstop System will remain watertight. It also offers additional benefits, such as waterproofing design consultation, on-site training and inspections, ready-mix supplier support, and detailed record-keeping and reporting.

Concrete Durability

A revolutionary admixture, Hard-Cem® has made it possible throughout its 20 years of field performance for over 80 million ft2 of concrete to resist harsh abrasive and erosive environments.

That’s all due to the following proven advantages:

•  Strengthening cement paste with its unique metal-mineral microstructure

•  Reducing concrete’s susceptibility to wear and tear

•  Proving via third-party testing it can more than double concrete wear life

•  Reducing the number of replacement and repair sessions a structure will have

•  Lowering the need for carbon-intensive cement

•  Decreasing a project’s lifetime carbon footprint

It all proves that Hard-Cem is a great solution for producing highly resilient infrastructure with lower maintenance and carbon costs.
