Recognized as an international leader in the field of concrete waterproofing, protection, and repair. Over the past 20 years the Penetron family of products has established its reputation by meeting the most demanding job specifications around the globe, from the semi-arctic regions of Norway and Russia to the torrid extremes of Saudi Arabia.

With a strong commitment to high technical standards. As such, Penetron formulations undergo continuous refinement through the integration of the latest materials research as well as in put from construction professionals in the field.

Penetron sales and service network extends to more than 60 countries, providing the company a broard channel to share its experience and expertise. By combing superior product performance with exceptional client support, Penetron continues to define dependability and excellence in protective concrete treatments for engineers, architects and builders the world over.

The versatility and effectiveness of the Penetron system have been demonstrated across a wide spectrum of critical applications including nuclear reactors, chemical storage facilities and mass transit tunnelling projects. The products adhere to the highest standards of environmental and ecological compliance, reflected in the numerous aquarium and reservoir projects in the company’s portfolio. At the production level, the exacting quality control process at our state of the art blending facility has earned us ISO9001-2000 certification.

Penetron’s waterproofing effect is achieved by the reaction of the various chemical components contained in the solution when combined within the concrete matrix. The compound penetrates deep into the capillary tracts of the concrete by pressure of osmosis and forms crystals that completely seal the capillaries and shrinkage (up to 0,4mm) cracks to drive out moisture. The process works with or against the pressure of water. In the absence of moisture, Penetron components lie dormant. Should moisture reoccur at any time, the chemical action and sealing process repeats itself automatically and advances even more deeply into the concrete. Penetron chemicals will continuously seal and reseal due to their chemical nature. Crystalline growth from capillary waterproofing has been measured as deep as nearly 1 meter from the point of application. Penetron is 100 % compatible with sound concrete, brick, mortar and stone.

Penetron is recommended for use in any concrete or block structure where it is required to keep water in or out. Penetron should also be applied to concrete or block structures exposed to potential water or chemical attack and thus requiring permanent waterproofing and protection. Its applicability to either the positive side (side exposed to water) or the negative side (side opposite the water) meets all waterproofing requirements.
