Dr. Fixit Krystalline is composed of high quality cement, properly selected & graded inert aggregates, proprietary waterproofing active chemicals & additives. It is used as a chemically active waterproofing treatment for concrete.
Dr. Fixit Krystalline when mixed with water and applied as a brush coat to concrete, it penetrates deeply into the capillaries of the concrete & protects it against the permeability of water.
How Dr. Fixit Krystalline works?
- The proprietary waterproofing active chemical plays very important role & it is a very simple reaction with the natural chemical by products of cement hydration, such as calcium hydroxide, various mineral oxides, hydrated & unhydrated cement particles of the concrete in wet condition. The result of chemical reaction is the formation of billions of needles like non-soluble crystals which block the pores of the capillaries, voids & micro-cracks in concrete. After blocking, the pores & capillary tracts of the concrete become discontinuous which stops the
permeability from all directions of the treated concrete. Dr. Fixit Krystalline remains active whenever water is present.
- Pre-saturation & subsequent re-wetting of the surface will cause diffusion of the organic chemicals & formation of crystals by reaction at greater depth. It may take from seven days to one month to reach its maximum waterproofing capability, depending on the thickness of the concrete.
- Environmental factors such as ambient temperature, density of concrete, moisture presence & weather conditions can affect the timing of sealing process. Under dry conditions, Dr. Fixit Krystalline lies dormant. However it becomes reactive whenever it is re-exposed to moisture.
- It penetrates even against strong hydrostatic pressure, becoming an integral part of the concrete. The waterproofing chemicals remain active for the life of the structure, permanently sealing it for water seepage.
