Hycrete’s flagship concrete waterproofing admixture for integral waterproofing, W1000 dramatically reduces water ingress through concrete. Ordinary concrete absorbs water and dissolved salts through its network of pores, leading to water infiltration and corrosion of steel reinforcement.
W1000 reduces absorption to 1% or lower and helps protect steel reinforcement. Less water and fewer chlorides are able to penetrate the concrete and the reinforcement hasenhanced protection from corrosion.
Maximum hydrophobic concrete performance – <1% absorption
