PENETRON Integral Capillary Concrete Waterproofing Systems

Product Overview

PENETRON’s crystalline technology enhances the durability, strength, overall performance and lifespan of concrete. Our cementitious capillary waterproofing products include crystalline waterproofing, waterstops and liquid sealers. They combine high quality cements, quartz, (special grade) sand and proprietary active ingredients to provide the most effective system to permanently reduce the permeability of concrete.

Product Description, Applications

PENETRON cementitious capillary waterproofing products are formulations that provide an effective, permanent concrete waterproofing system. The PENETRON chemicals work by penetrating into the capillary tracts of concrete through pressure of osmosis, Brownian movement and dry particle reactions. The active ingredients of Penetron react with various concrete minerals, forming insoluble crystals that fill out cracks, pores and voids up to a width of at least 400 microns.

PENETRON should be applied to concrete or block structures exposed to potential water or chemical attack. Its applicability to either the positive (exposed to water) or negative (opposite water) side meets all waterproofing applications. Examples include:

  • Aquariums
  • Tunnels
  • Foundations
  • Elevator shafts
  • Underground vaults
  • Manholes
  • Drinking water reservoirs
  • Sewage and water treatment tanks
  • Traffic bearing structures
  • Parking decks
  • Base slabs
  • Diaphragm walls
  • Basements
  • Concrete roofs
  • Industrial installations


  • PENETRON ADMIX — permeability-reducing concrete admixture added to the concrete during batching
  • PENETRON — surface-applied material to waterproof and protect concrete in-depth
  • PENETRON PLUS — special formulation designed for a dry-shake application on horizontal concrete surfaces for greater resistance toimpact and abrasion
  • PENECRETE MORTAR — cementitious, ready-mixed waterproof repairing and sealing mortar
  • PENEPLUG — cementitious, ready-mixed, rapid setting compound to stop active leaks
  • PENESEAL PRO — spray-applied liquid sealer that forms a subsurface barrier that protects concrete against water penetration and seals existing cracks up to 2 mm

Features, Advantages

  • Seals concrete capillary tracts and cracks up to 0.4 mm
  • Cannot come apart at the seams, tear or puncture
  • Increases compressive strength of concrete
  • Resists chemical attack, protects from freeze/thaw cycles, corrosion of reinforcement steel, aggressive sub-soil waters, seawater, carbonates, chlorides, sulfates and nitrates
  • Non-toxic / NSF 61-compliant — approved for potable water use by EPA and in many other countries
