Crystalline waterproofing of concrete.
Particularly useful as a means of isolating moisture within pile caps, ring beams and kicker joints to internal walls.
Newton 104 is applied to the surface of concrete to provide in-depth protection against the movement of moisture through the capillaries and hairline cracks within the concrete. It consists of Portland cement, specially treated quartz sand and a compound of active chemicals. Newton 104 is supplied in powdered form and is either sprinkled onto fresh concrete or is mixed with water as a carrier and brush or spray applied as slurry for application to fully cured or older concrete or vertical surfaces.
The active chemicals combine with the free lime and moisture present within the capillaries to form insoluble crystalline complexes which effectively block the capillaries and any minor shrinkage cracks to prevent any further movement of moisture to provide a totally dry surface to the concrete.
Large areas can be quickly treated with Newton 104. The speed of application and the low material application rate (1 kg/m²) makes this product a very low cost option for various scenarios.
Because Newton 104 penetrates deep into the concrete, it does not leave a physical membrane to the surface of the concrete element and so is completely unaffected by loadings imposed by further elements of the build. New concrete elements are placed ‘concrete to concrete’ with no potential for slip or separation as is the case with physical membranes.
Surface preparation is required, as is protection after application - consult manufacturer for details.
