The most used man-made material on the planet is concrete. All construction projects – small, medium, and large – have used concrete in one way or another.

However, as evidenced by crumbling infrastructure and structures the world over, the quality of the concrete can determine whether a project is truly viable or not. For example, building a bridge with a lifespan of 50 years is not economically viable when you consider the cost of initial construction, eventual repairs and the likelihood of early replacement.

Concrete is the most used building material in the world. But, currently, concrete structures around the world are not meeting their designed service life due to rapid deterioration – most of which is caused by the transport of fluids and moisture through the concrete.

Unfortunately, many common concrete waterproofing methods do not add to the life of that concrete, contain harmful toxins, and are difficult to apply. Fortunately, crystalline waterproofing admixtures provide another option.
