Waterproof Concrete Sealer

One of the most widely used construction material in both houses and offices is concrete. Without concrete it would be very difficult to construct buildings of any kind. But like every construction material out there, concrete also has an inherent problem. The problem is that concrete structures are susceptible to water damage. To counteract this problem, several companies have started manufacturing and marketing waterproof concrete sealers in the market. Let us take a look at some of these and find out how they can help protect concrete structures.

Bondall Hydrocrete

Bondall Hydrocrete is bonding agent and an admixture that is water resistant in nature. The agent can be used on a number of surfaces apart from concrete and is very efficient when it comes to protection of the surface on which it has been used.

The agent is known for its high adhesiveness and versatility. The agent is useful because apart from protecting the surface it improves the strength and the durability of the surface. Apart from concrete it can be used on bricks, masonry, stucco, etc. Another added feature is that it can be used even on wet surfaces.

Cementaid Everdure Caltite

Everdure Caltite is a heavy duty damp proofing, waterproofing and corrosion proofing sealer that is used for protecting structural concrete. It is suitable for use on all types of concrete structures and can even be used in damp or wet conditions.

The sealer basically contains a pore blocking ingredient which enters into the surface being protected and then makes the surface waterproof from the inside. Also the sealer helps in preventing the normal capillary action of the concrete structure by forming a hydrophobic matrix which prevents any water from entering the surface on which he sealer has been used.

Krystol Internal Membrane

Krystol Internal Membrane is a product that is the best when it comes to protection of concrete surfaces from any kind of water damage. The sealer works by reducing the permeability of the surface, thus providing protection that is permanent in nature.
The working of the sealant is by the method of penetration and formation of crystals inside the concrete surface which prevent the water from entering the surface. The benefits of using this sealer include.

  • The sealer can be used for the purpose of protecting any surface that is exposed to water and is external in nature.
  • Since the sealer can be mixed directly into the concrete at the time of application, there is no wait time when it comes to curing.
  • The sealer is non-toxic in nature and has been certified to be used in a variety of applications such as water tanks, dams, pools, etc.

These are some of the waterproof cement sealers that are available in the market these days. The thing with these sealers is that although they are ease to purchase and use, they are quite expensive. So what one needs to do before buying any sealer is that he or she should do some research and find out whether the sealer that they are going to purchase is capable of solving their problem or not, and should go ahead with the purchase only when there is surety that the sealer is capable of solving the problems at hand.
