Radcon and Radmyx provides non-toxic waterproofing systems and its durability where no re-application or future maintenance is required! It is safe, convenient and efficient, with no protection required.
Radmyx Capillary Waterproofing System is a complete “once-and-for-all” approach to waterproofing below grade concrete structures such as basements, tunnels, culverts and water holding vessels.
Radmyx can be used as an admixture, slurry coat, sprinkle or mortar and is effective against positive or negative water pressure.
Radmyx reacts with the hydration products of cement to form crystals within the cracks, pores and capillaries of concrete structures- thereby effectively blocking the passage of water.
Complete waterproofing is normally achieved within 5-7 days from application. After the crystallisation process has successfully waterproofed the structure the active chemicals in Radmyx remain dormant in the concrete. Any subsequent contact with water will reactivate the Radmyx sealing process.
Radmyx can be used as an admixture, slurry, mortar or sprinkle in old or new construction.
Application is straightforward and effective – and minimal preparation is required.
Minimises the risk of failure by making concrete watertight- unlike memberanes which can delaminate, deteriorate, puncture over time or be damaged by following trades.
Back-filling operations can be undertaken immediately after forms are stripped, protection boards and drainage cells are not required as there is no risk of damage during construction or thereafter.
No re-application or future maintenance is required- Radmyx remains reactive in the concrete for the life of the structure and application comes with a 10-year warranty.
Quick, simple application streamlines the construction timetable – saving time and money
Radmyx is a non-toxic, safe for potable water contact and emits no VOCs
WHY CONCRETE LEAKS
As concrete cures, it loses most of the water that was added at the batch plant leaving behind small empty spaces known as pores and capillaries. The loss of moisture also causes concrete to shrink that can also cause cracking as the concrete is restrained. When subjected to water at some future stage it is these cracks, pores and capillaries that cause concrete to leak- and the gradual deterioration of the structure.
WHAT DOES RADMYX DO?
Active chemicals in Radmyx react with the by-products of cement hydration to form insoluble, fibre-like crystals. These crystals fill the cracks, pores and capillaries in the concrete and stop the flow of water and resultant leakage through the concrete.
HOW DOES RADMYX DO IT?
It is the process of osmosis that enables the Radmyx crystals to migrate through the concrete. Osmosis is where compounds of higher concentration move through a semi permeable barrier (concrete) to areas of low concentration.
The crystals produced by the reaction of Radmyx move from their highest concentration i.e as applied to the surface (slurry) or distributed through the matrix (admixture) – to where they are needed most, that being where the water is present to reactivate and stop the leakage.
