CRYSTALLINE WATERPROOFING MORTAR
PENECRETE MORTAR™ consists of Portland cement, specially treated quartz sand and a compound of active chemicals. The active chemicals react with moisture and the by-products of cement hydration to cause a catalytic reaction, which generates an insoluble integral crystalline complex. These crystalline complexes grow in the presence of water and block the capillaries of the concrete and minor shrinkage cracks, thus waterproofing the concrete. Chemical activation begins when the powder is mixed with water and may take several days to completely block the capillaries, depending on ambient temperature and environmental conditions
APPLICATIONS Applied in conjunction with PENETRON® for: Installation of seal strips, reglets and coves at joints to assure water tightness Patching of tie holes and faulty construction joints Patching and filling of routed out cracks Repairing of spalled and honeycombed areas
ADVANTAGES Can be applied to the positive or negative water pressure sides of a structure Resists strong hydrostatic pressure Seals cracks up to 1/51” (0.5 mm) Easy to use – needs only to be mixed with water prior to application Allows the concrete to “breathe” Can be skim coated or feather edged Can be applied to moist concrete Fast setting Inorganic – contains no polymers NSF 61 certified for use in potable water applications Non-flammable Resists abrasion and mechanical wear Freeze/thaw resistant Zero VOC - PENETRON powdered products contain zero volatile organic compounds and are safe for use both outdoors and in confined indoor spaces
All surfaces to be patched, repaired or sealed with PENECRETE MORTAR™
must be clean and sound. Cracks should be routed out to a U-shaped
configuration, approximately 3/4” (19 mm) wide and a minimum of 3/4” (19
mm) deep. Tie holes should be roughened prior to filling. Spalled and
honeycombed areas must be thoroughly cleaned and chiseled back to sound
concrete prior to repair. Remove all dirt, cement laitance, form release agents,
curing compounds, paints, coatings, etc. by means of wet or dry sandblasting,
high pressure water jet or other suitable mechanical means. Surfaces must be
well moistened to a dull dampness at the time of application. The concrete
should be damp with no wet sheen on the surface.
Routed cracks, coves and non-moving joints: Add water to PENECRETE
MORTAR™ until a medium stiff, trowelable consistency is reached. The texture
of the mix should be pliable enough to be trowelled into the cracks with some
pressure, but not so pliable that it would run out or sag out of the crack.
Approximate mixing ratio (by volume) is 4.5 parts powder to 1 part water.
Alternatively, 3.4 oz (101 ml) of water to 1 lb (454 g) of PENECRETE MORTAR™
