Concrete Waterproofing with Crystalline Technology
Sponsored by: Xypex Chemical Corporation
Participants will learn about the composition of concrete, the causes of deterioration and how crystalline waterproofing waterproofs, protects and preserves concrete structures. Class will help you understand how crystalline technology works with concrete to provide high performance waterproofing qualities. We will explain the difference between porosity, permeability, and the mechanics by which water is absorbed through concrete structures, as well as discuss how crystalline waterproofing technology works, improves the durability of concrete structures and reduces maintenance.
