Waterproof Concrete Repair

Krystol Leak Repair System - Repairing Existing Leaking Concrete

Crystalline Repair Materials for Concrete

The Krystol Leak Repair System is a permanent crystalline waterproofing solution used for repairing leaking cracks, holes and joints found in concrete. It reliably stops high water flow, even under high-hydrostatic pressure, and outperforms injection systems. Repairing leaks is a simple 3-step process that involves preparing a chase by chiseling into the concrete, stopping flowing water with Krystol Plug (if required), and then filling the chase flush to the surface with Krystol Repair Grout.

After completing the leak repair, Krystol T1 Concrete Waterproofing will protect the entire structure against the continued ingress of water and further concrete deterioration, as well as reduce the likelihood of further leaks developing in the structure.

Features & Benefits

  • Permanently repaired for the life of the concrete

  • Simple and easy application process

  • Negates the risk of costly call-backs

  • Can repair from the positive or negative side

How it Works

The Krystol Leak Repair System contains Krystol technology. When applied to concrete, Krystol chemically reacts with water and un-hydrated cement particles to form insoluble needle-shaped crystals that fill capillary pores and micro-cracks in the concrete and block the pathways for water and waterborne contaminants. Any moisture introduced over the lifespan of the concrete will initiate crystallization, ensuring permanent waterproofing protection.

Application Areas

The leak repair system comprised of Krystol Plug, Krystol Repair Grout, and Krystol T1 is primarily used to repair leaking cracks in concrete. The system, as well as components therein can also be used to:

  • Repair Leaking cracks or construction joints

  • Seal around pipes and metal fixtures in masonry concrete

  • Repair spalled or honeycombed concrete

  • Use as a waterproof parge coat on masonry walls

  • Plug and seal construction form tie holes

Effective Leaking Concrete Repairs

The primary component of the Krystol Leak Repair System is Krystol Repair Grout. Krystol Repair Grout is a crystalline concrete waterproofing product that stops the flow of water to permanently repair leaking cracks, holes and joints in concrete, and can also be used to resurface and waterproof defective, damaged or deteriorating concrete. The grout employs advanced fiber technology and shrinkage controlling additives to prevent cracking.

Krystol Repair Grout is simple and easy to use and provides a means of repairing cracks, holes, joints, etc with a crystalline material that, when used with Krystol T1, will create a permanent waterproofing repair.

For concrete repair with flowing water, Krystol Plug is first used. As part of the Krystol Leak Repair System, Krystol Plug is a rapid-setting hydraulic cement product that when mixed with water is used to stop flowing water and repair leaking cracks, holes and joints in concrete.

Krystol Plug sets hard within 2 minutes and has high-compressive strength, which allows it to stop water even under high hydrostatic pressure. Stopping water flow then allows permanent repair of the leak using Krystol Repair Grout and Krystol T1.
