Permaquik Crystalline Waterproofing

Check up to five results to perform an action.

Permaquik crystalline products are capillary waterproofing formulations of proprietary blends of chemicals, quartz sand and cement. The chemicals contained in the crystalline waterproofing materials require the presence of moisture to set off a chemical reaction from within the matrix of the concrete. When combined with “free lime”, these chemicals form long chained complexes, which crystallize and penetrate deep into the capillaries of the concrete eliminating the migration of water. Independent tests show penetration up to 50mm in 28 days. The crystalline process is continuous as long as moisture is present in the concrete, significantly reducing the concrete’s natural porosity by filling small voids and cracks caused by shrinkage. The concrete is still able to breathe as the crystalline does not create a vapor barrier. If no moisture is present, the crystals will lie dormant until moisture reappears and then will reactivate to seal the cause of the leakage.

Permaquik Super 200 is applied as a slurry coat on vertical interior or exterior (CIP) concrete or (CMU) block structures to create a waterproofing barrier from within the substrate. It can be applied by “broadcasting” the dry powder onto horizontal concrete surfaces at the time of initial set and power or hand floating the powder into the green concrete. Once the reaction has taken place and the formulation has crystallized, these coatings are highly resistant to salts (chloride penetration), alkalis and seawater. Because of the density of the crystalline chain, the concrete is able to withstand mildly acidic conditions to provide protection in wastewater treatment plants as well as superior protection against frost damage and may also be used in sealing the joint between new and existing concrete.

Permaquik Mortar 300 is applied in mortar consistency to make coves and for filling reglets at construction joints. It is also used to repair honeycombing, cracks, filling of formtie holes and cold joints and is used in conjunction with Permaquik Super 200.

Permaquik 400 is used as a rendering for brick masonry and stonewalls. It is supplied as a ready-mixed material, adding only water to make the material ready for use.

Basic Uses
 Few products in the waterproofing industry offer the total protection to the concrete itself that Permaquik Crystalline Waterproofing Systems provide. Where moisture is present, there is always the danger of damage not only to the concrete but to the steel as well as interior finishes. Permaquik Crystalline products, when applied to inside or outside surfaces,integrate and combine with the concrete from within thus forming a barrier which cannot easily be damaged. No special below-grade protection is necessary. The crystalline products tolerate water so there is no need to continually dry the surface before applicaton, unlike most asphaltic, bitumen or solventbased resin systems.
