Penetron Admix Feature: IPT Brazil

 

Penetron® Feature: IPT Brazil: Penetron Admix demonstrates its ability to dry out  concrete under continuous water pressure.

In April, 2007, the following test was initiated at the reputed Brazilian IPT (Technological Research Institute of São Paulo State, Brazil) facility to demonstrate the ability of Penetron Admix to completely dry out concrete under continues water pressure. Porous (20 MPa) concrete samples treated with Penetron Admix were subjected to continuous water pressure up to 0.7 MPa (234 ft. head water). The concrete was then observed for a period of 4 weeks. The images below demonstrate the waterproofing progress over this 4 week period.
