About Penetron Admix


Penetron Admix

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.

PENETRON ADMIX is compatible with all commonly used workability admixtures (e.g. superplasticizers, retarders) and mix design formulations (trial mixes recommended prior to casting).

Penetron Admix PDS
PENETRON ADMIX® (integral crystalline waterproofing admix) is added to the concrete mix at the time of batch- ing. PENETRON ADMIX® consists of Portland cement, very fine treated silica sand and various active, proprietary chemicals.These active chemicals react with the moisture in fresh concrete with the by-products of cement hydra- tion to cause a catalytic reaction, which generates a non-soluble crystalline formation throughout the pores and capillary tracts of the concrete.Thus the concrete becomes permanently sealed against the penetration of water or liquids from any direction.The concrete is also protected from deterioration due to harsh environmental conditions. The Penetron Admix has been specially formulated to meet varying project and temperature conditions (see SETTING TIME AND STRENGTH). Consult with a Penetron Technical Representative for additional detailed support on your project.
