PENETRON ADMIX is a non-toxic, 3rd generation crystalline admixture in powder form that is added to new concrete during batching.
Once inside the concrete, it reduces concrete permeability by permanently sealing microcracks, pores and capillaries and effectively protecting the concrete against water penetration and the effects of deterioration, even under high hydrostatic pressure. PENETRON ADMIX provides projects with self-healing concrete with the ability to reseal cracks that develop during the lifetime of the concrete. The strength, slump or setting time of the concrete are never affected.
PENETRON ADMIX is compatible with all commonly used workability admixtures (e.g. superplasticizers, retarders) and mix design formulations (trial mixes are recommended prior to casting).
