Kryton International Inc.
Kryton International Inc. is the inventor of the crystalline waterproofing admixture and has been waterproofing concrete structures with its proprietary Krystol® technology since 1973. It has won awards for innovation, manufacturing, best place to work and entrepreneurial awards. In 2017, Kryton acquired Cementec Industries and is now distributing Hard-Cem®, an integral (not surface applied) concrete hardener for increased abrasive and erosive wear resistance of ready-mix concrete, precast concrete and shotcrete. Kryton is now the only manufacturer of Silica Fume products in Western Canada. It is an active member of the American Concrete Institute, International Concrete Repair Institute, American Shotcrete Association and many other thought-leading organizations. Kryton exports its products to over 50 countries.

Krystol Internal Membrane™ (KIM®)
Krystol Internal Membrane™ (KIM®) is a hydrophilic crystalline admixture used to create permanently waterproof concrete. KIM lowers the permeability of concrete, and is used in place of surface applied waterproofing membranes. By stopping the transmission of water through concrete, KIM adds durability and longevity to concrete by protecting it against chemical attack and corrosion of reinforcing steel. We also have a full suite of jointing solutions for new construction that are regularly used in conjunction with KIM.

Kryton’s repair solutions are also very popular in Africa. The product line includes Krystol Plug, Krystol Repair Grout and Krystol T1, which can be used together to form the Krystol Leak Repair System, and Krystol Bari-Cote. Together they are used to resurface, waterproof and repair leaking cracks, penetrations, tie-holes and defective concrete from the positive or negative side of the water pressure.

Kryton helps you save both time and money by eliminating risks associated with waterproofing. You get expert help—before, during and after construction—with instructions, technical materials and videos that make it easy to use our products to create watertight structures that last.They also provide full specifications and training for architects, engineers, general contractors, sub-trades and concrete producers.

Kryton’s concrete hardening solution has a proven durability performance track record having been used since 2004 in over 5.6 million m2 (60 million ft2 ). Hard-Cem increases the hardness of the concrete paste and reduces fine and coarse aggregate exposure that creates degradation to concrete surfaces. Since it is integral, it continues to offer surface wear resistance throughout its life. By increasing the abrasive-erosive service life of concrete, maintenance costs are reduced and replacement of the concrete is substantially deferred.

Kryton provides unmatched quality performance. Structures that were built using Kryton’s waterproofing or durability enhancing solutions regularly outlive their designed service lives. They offer the industry-leading 25-year warranty for the Krystol Internal Membrane™ (KIM®) admixture. Moreover, Kryton has the only crystalline waterproofing admixture associated with projects that have outlasted their warranties.

Kryton provides efficient Customer Support. They provide both virtual support from their headquarters in Vancouver and the distributors all over the world provide on the ground support. They have an in-house Research Laboratory that is specialized in permeability testing. The laboratory allows them to do continued product development and optimization.

Kryton has independent accreditation from construction authorities around the world such as the International Code Council Evaluation Service (ICC-ES), NSF International and British Board of Agreement (BBA). Kryton is a proud contributing member of industry and academic guiding bodies such as American Concrete Institute (ACI) and the International Concrete Repair Institute (ICRI) and are known as the most trusted name in waterproofing.

Kryton’s newest product, Hard-Cem, is Integral Hardening Admixture used to increase Abrasion and Erosion resistance of concrete. Hard-Cem is added to the concrete at the time of batching to increase the hardness of the concrete and expand concrete wear life. It outperforms and overcomes deficiencies of labor intensive surface applied hardeners, and can be used to enhance durability of both air-entrained and non-air-entrained concretes. Since it is integral, Hard-Cem can be used to harden horizontal, vertical or inclined concrete and shotcrete surfaces. It replaces the need for dry-shake hardening products, lowers installed cost, provides improved quality control and reduces maintenance costs. This integral admixture innovation is added directly to the concrete mix, the same way KIM is added. KIM was invented in the 1980s and buildings waterproofed with KIM are still dry today.
