Unique Advantages

Penetron UK Ltd - The Callao Wastewater Treatment Plant just west of Lima, Peru.

PENETRON® should not be confused with a coating or membrane solution. It actually becomes an integral part of the concrete, forming a complete body of strength and durability. The system therefore offers the following benefits:

  • Penetrates deeply…up to 1 meter !
  • Seals concrete’s capillary tracts and cracks up to 0.4mm.
  • Permanent; waterproofing and chemical resistance properties remain intact even after surface damage.
  • cannot come apart at the seams, tear or puncture.
  • more effective and less costly than other systems such as membranes, clay panels, pore blockers, coatings… –
  • easy to apply and therefore highly labour-cost effective.
  • can be applied from either the positive or the negative side.
  • resists high hydrostatic head pressure.
  • increases compressive strength of concrete.
  • does not require protection during backfilling, placement of steel or wire mesh or other common procedures.
  • resists chemical attack and provides a wide range of protection from freeze-thaw cycles, corrosion of reinforcement steel, aggressive sub-soil waters, sea water, carbonates, chlorides, sulfates and nitrates.
  • can be applied to moist or green concrete.
  • can be applied as a slurry (brush or spray), dry-shake or admixture.
  • non toxic…approved for potable water use in the United Kingdom by the DWI (Drinking Water Inspectorate) and in many other countries. Certification and European environmental licenses obtained.
  • no extensive curing times except for extremely hot weather and low humidity.
  • with a sales history in over 60 countries and distributors around the globe, we can tap into a vast resource of experience and concrete expertise to assist with demanding projects in your area.
