Applied to the surface of concrete, HydroCoat 104 Super provides in-depth protection against the movement of moisture through the capillaries and hairline cracks.
The active chemicals within HydroCoat 104 Super 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 HydroCoat 104 Super. The speed of application and the low material application rate (1 kg/m2) makes HydroCoat 104 Super a very low cost option for a large number of scenarios.
Because HydroCoat 104 Super 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. This makes HydroCoat 104 Super particularly useful as a means of isolating moisture within pile caps, ring beams and kicker joints to internal walls.
