Type B Waterproofing | Innovative Concrete Admixtures

Improving the Durability of Concrete. The use of BETOCRETE-C products reduces water penetration by up to 80%. Independent testing institutes of concrete producers themselves show for water impermeable concrete formulas with a mean penetration of 25 mm, a reduction to 5 mm. The water vapour permeability is also lowered by around 10 times.
