Concrete Waterproofing Admixtures, Waterstops, Coatings and Repair Materials
Founded in the late 1970s, PENETRON developed cementitious waterproofing products and additives to create an optimal crystalline technology. Today, the PENETRON system of products is sold around the world in over 60 countries through qualified applicators and distributors.
The know-how and experience gained over the past 40 years has enabled PENETRON to offer a broad range of concrete solutions, including crystalline waterproofing, waterstops and liquid sealers. The PENETRON system has been proven effective on countless major projects worldwide. The technical excellence of the products and a knowledgeable and dependable team of people have made the company the industry leader.
PENETRON products are manufactured and continually optimized at our development center and production plant in the USA. All our facilities are ISO 9001 and ISO14001 certified and are backed by our PENETRON product manufacturing warranty. Our commitment to quality is not limited to our products, but also includes our technical support teams around the world.
A surface-applied, integral crystalline waterproofing material, PENETRON is used for waterproofing and chemical protection at above and below ground level.PENETRON is applied by brush or spray to either the positive or the negative side of the concrete and in the presence of moisture penetrates deeply into the structure. The ensuing chemical reaction fills microcracks, pores and capillaries with an insoluble crystalline formation, which prevents water and water-borne chemicals from entering, even under high hydrostatic pressure. Cracks that develop during the lifetime of the concrete are resealed by PENETRON, resulting in permanent concrete protection.
PENETRON ADMIX SB is identical to our 3rd generation crystalline admixture, but packaged in convenient, pre-measured soluble bags for easy application when adding the product to the new concrete batch. As a quality guarantee, PENETRON ADMIX SB features our unique ‘green tracer' indicator to signal that genuine PENETRON ADMIX is in the mix.
Once inside the concrete, PENETRON ADMIX SB reduces permeability by permanently sealing micro-cracks, pores and capillaries. This protects the concrete against water penetration and effects of deterioration, even under high hydrostatic pressure. It provides projects with a self-healing capability to reseal cracks that develop during the lifetime of the concrete.
PENETRON ADMIX SB is compatible with all commonly used workability admixtures (e.g. superplasticizers, retarders) and mix design formulations (trial mixes recommended prior to casting).
PENETRON ADMIX RP is our tried and true Penetron Admix formulation with the addition of red pigment to meet the specification requirements of certain precast underground markets. Packaged in convenient, pre-measured soluble bags for quality control and easy application, PENETRON ADMIX RP is ready to use when adding product to the new concrete batch. As a quality guarantee, PENETRON ADMIX RP features a red pigment to permanently color the concrete to ensure visibility at a distance during inspection and to signal that genuine PENETRON ADMIX RP is in the mix.

This protects the concrete against water penetration and effects of corrosion deterioration, even under high hydrostatic pressure.

Used in combination with PENETRON for filling non-moving cracks and construction joints, form-tie holes, honey-combed areas and structurally damaged concrete. PENECRETE MORTAR consists of Portland cement, very fine treated silica sand and various active, proprietary chemicals. It is applied in laminated layers to areas that have been opened and cut-back to sound concrete for repair to provide protection against water ingress.
PENEBAR SW 55 creates a physical barrier against water penetration through cast-in-place concrete joints that expand (in a controlled fashion) when exposed to water.Its superior ability to expand and seal concrete joints allows it to replace the more passive tied in PVC water stop systems, which easily bend over during casting, and eliminate welding irons, split-forming and special shapes.
Recommended for building foundations, slabs, retaining walls, storage tanks and other immovable cold construction joints, PENEBAR SW 45 is a unique sealing compound designed to expand rapidly when exposed to water.It is an ideal self-healing joint material for construction joint applications.
PENETRON BIOMIC is an antimicrobial admixture added to the concrete mix at the time of batching. It forms a molecular bond with the concrete, preventing microbial-induced corrosion (MIC) damage and inhibiting the growth of other product-damaging and odor-causing micro- organisms, such as bacteria, algae and fungi.
PENETRON BIOMIC's technology is an EPA registered microbiostatic agent that ruptures microbe cell walls on contact. This complete electro-physical destruction of the microbes that come into contact with it does not deplete PENETRON BIOMIC and, as it is also leach resistant and will not migrate through the concrete, it retains its effectiveness indefinitely.
