Waterproofing Concrete Solutions
Have you ever had issues working with a waterproofing contractor? Imagine this – no surface preparation, no delays waiting for a mud slab to dry before applying waterproofing, no waiting for the waterproofing contractors to arrive on site and do their work, no weather delays because the concrete got wet and the waterproofing contractor cannot do their next task.
With Hycrete waterproofing admixtures, you can do both the concrete and the waterproofing, without another contractor to delay you.
You can also get increased revenue, offering a value-added product.
Hycrete X1000 corrosion inhibition admixture has superior performance and no set time or workability issues. Other corrosion inhibitors may have accelerated set times, which may mean you have to reject concrete deliveries and wait for fresh concrete. With Hycrete corrosion inhibitors, there are no set time issues.
