VARADEX PREMIUM

SURFACE APPLIED, CEMENTITIOUS, IN-DEPTH CRYSTAL GROWTH WATERPROOFING TREATMENT FOR CONCRETE

VARADEX PREMIUM is an in-depth cementitious waterproofing compound consisting of grey Portland cement and specially treated quartz sand blended with a range of active chemicals. After application, VARADEX PREMIUM supplies active ingredients to the host concrete under the forces of osmosis which react with the free lime in the host concrete to poduce dendritic crystals. The crystals formed effectively block the pores, capillaries and minor cracks in the host concrete preventing the passage of liquid water, however the VARADEX PREMIUM treated concrete will still allow the passage of water vapour through the structure, thereby allowing the structure to breathe. The fact that the waterproofing takes place from within the host concrete means that even under very high negative side water pressures, the waterproofing will not blister or be pushed off the wall.

Uses

VARADEX PREMIUM can be applied to either the pressure or non-pressure faces of concrete and is excellent for solving the problem of water seepage through porous or cracked concrete in both new and old structures. VARADEX PREMIUM is ideal for treating concrete surfaces where the high pressure face is not easily accessible. Typical applications include; lifts pits, basement walls, concrete floor slabs, balconies, water storage tanks, swimming pools, sewerage treatment plants, canals and bridges etc.
