Product Overview

ICS Penetron Intl. Ltd. was founded in the late 1970s. The company’s products are successfully marketed in over 60 countries worldwide.

Product Description, Applications
Penetron® Cementitious Capillary Waterproofing products are formulations consisting of common cement, quartz, special grade sand and multiple activating chemicals 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

SYSTEM COMPONENTS

  • Penetron – Surface-applied material that waterproofs and protects concrete in-depth
  • Penetron Plus – Special formulation designed specifically for a dry-shake application on horizontal concrete surfaces where greater resistance to impact and abrasion is required
  • Penecrete Mortar – Cementitious, ready-mixed waterproof repairing and sealing mortar
  • Peneplug – Cementitious, ready-mixed, rapid setting compound to stop water and moisture ingress
  • Penetron Admix – Added to the concrete mix at the time of batching
  • 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’s 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 and provides a wide range of protection from freeze/thaw cycles, corrosion of reinforcement steel, aggressive sub-soil waters, seawater, carbonates, chlorides, sulfates and nitrates
  • Nontoxic – Approved for potable water use by EPA and in many other countries
  • NSF 61 compliant
