KRYSTOL T1 & T2 Waterproofing System is a cementitious, brush-applied, treatment for concrete. KRYSTOL T1 & T2 contain the proven world-renowned Krystol waterproofing chemicals. Sold by the pail.
KRYSTOL T1 is applied to the concrete first followed by KRYSTOL T2. When applied in accordance with manufacturer's specifications, the Krystol system is warranted for use in place of conventional waterproofing systems.
KRYSTOL T1 & T2 react chemically within the concrete mass to form billions of needle-like crystals which block the pores, voids and microcracks in concrete. Presaturation and subsequent re-wetting of the surface will cause deeper diffusion of the organic chemicals and formation of crystals at greater depth.

Independent testing concludes that KRYSTOLTM T1 & T2 Waterproofing System is a permanent, in-depth waterproofing treatment.
KRYSTOL T1 & T2 Waterproofing System is a two slurry coat application. Under special circumstances a single coat of KRYSTOL T1 may be approved by the manufacturer.
Prior to application all cracks and joints must be repaired according to Specification No. 1. Concrete must be free from paints, sealers, oil, grease, bitumen, laitance and other contaminants (see Technical Bulletin #202). Surfaces to be treated must be pre-soaked with clean water to a saturated surface dry (SSD) condition. Do not leave any standing water.
Mix KRYSTOL T1 to a slurry consistency (5 parts powder to 2 parts clean water). With a concrete brush, use an aggressive circular motion to coat the concrete with the KRYSTOL T1 slurry mix. Allow KRYSTOL T1 to harden (generally 3 hours).
Mix KRYSTOL T2 to a slurry consistency (5 parts powder to 2 parts clean water). With a concrete brush, use an aggressive circular motion to overcoat the KRYSTOL T1 application with KRYSTOL T2 .
Coverage of Slurry Applications
Completed applications should be moist cured for 48 hours and protected from rain and light traffic for 12 hours. Heavy traffic should be avoided until the surface has hardened. Treated concrete surfaces should not be permanently exposed to liquids for 7 days. Finishes containing Portland cement may be applied over KRYSTOL T1 & T2 after 3 hours but other paint and coating finishes should not be applied before 28 days.
