Crystalfix is the most technologically advanced method of repairing concrete structures for the retention of liquid. We know that you can save literally thousands of dollars by avoiding replacement of your tanks and troughs by using Crystal Fix. Even badly deteriorated structures can be restored to a “usable”, if not perfect condition.
Crystal Growth Systems, repair concrete by the formation of hard polydendretic crystals that form within the concrete. This gives the method outstanding properties in waterproofing, densifying, hardfacing, and steel reinforcement protection. Because it becomes part of the concrete, it cannot puncture or tear. It also offers protection in the freeze/thaw cycle of concrete. Of major importance, is that it continues to repair as the structure continues to move.
Mr Crystal is applied to the surface of the concrete. Within concrete are millions of tiny voids. Mr Crystal migrates through these voids by osmosis and capillary action, generating in-soluble crystals as it travels. Mr Crystal is in fact a catalyst, which causes your existing concrete to grow in-soluble crystals. This means you have a large amount of material in the structure, which can generate in-soluble crystals without adding material that will expand cracks. Mr Crystal is stimulated by the by-products of your existing concrete and hydration. This means, each time water is present within the substrate, Mr Crystal will activate.
