Penetron Coating for Concrete Waterproofing and Durability

The cementitious membrane BLOCKSEAL can also be used to treat water retaining structures, Stair Wells, Lift Pits, PVC walling systems, Precast walls, Rooftops, Balconies, etc. Please ask us how?

Penetron Australia worked relentlessly to create various extremely important and detailed technical documents to address nearly every scenario that you normally come across on sites. These can be in basements, rooftops, shotcrete, OSD tanks, planter boxes, concrete sealing, PVC walling systems, and a lot more.

Penetron Admix SB is dosed at a rate of 0.8% minimum of the total cementitious material by mass. To make it cost-effective, it is important to optimise your loads in such way that the Penetron Admix dosage is close enough to the rate of 0.8%.

Every warranted project requires the Penetron project specific dosage information form to be filled out by the concrete supplier for every batch dosed with the Penetron Admix SB and returned to form part of the warranty documents.

Design a waterproof and durable shotcrete wall.

Shotcrete is one of the most used construction techniques in basements against shoring systems. However, if the important steps were not adhered to right from the design stages, especially in hydrostatic conditions, it becomes one the most heartbreaking walls to look at. Some of the main issues are the quality of the finish, the concrete cracking, and the waterproofing.

Learn new simple ways in concrete remediation

Concrete is one of the oldest construction materials and one of the most durable and easiest to have access to. However, like any other construction material, it has its downfalls such as cracking, weak tensile strength, porous, and still misunderstood by the end user. There are over 3500 concrete mixes worldwide used in different applications and environments, and if the wrong mix is used, heartbreaking results are encountered. As a result, concrete remediation is something that you cannot avoid during the design life of the structure. Join us to learn a little more about concrete, why it deteriorates, and how to repair some of the most common failures or simply protect or rejuvenate the unavoidable aged and worn-out concrete.
