Waterproof & Protective
Moisture Vapor Mitigation &
Integral Crystalline Waterproofing
System for Concrete
Crystalline waterproofing systems
with innovative 3-in-1 technology
Concrete is a pourous material by nature, left untreated it will suffer damage and signifcantly reduced service times.
Protect your concrete from the day it is poured with AQUAFIN-IC Crystalline waterproofing solutions!
The BETOCRETE®-C System is the first choice for any concrete structure subject to contact with water. Protect your
concrete with the ultimate waterproofing solution.
- The crystalline growth develops over
time, added hydrophobic properties
enhance water penetration and
absorption from the start.
- Water and the chemistry within BETOCRETE® reacts with the cement
free lime to create millions of nanocrystals that grow throughout the
concrete matrix. As the nano-crystals form, they fill and block the
concrete’s capillary structure, protecting it from water ingress and
"self-seal" cracks up to 0.5 mm.
BETOCRETE is designed for all
concrete structures, such as:
• Water treatment facilities
• Parking garages
• Docks and barges
• Concrete foundations
• Tunnels and concrete pipes
• Tanks and containers
• Power station cooling towers
• Shotcrete applications
• Concrete superstructures
• Sewage ducts and shafts
• Secant pile foundations
• Precast concrete elements
- Steel reinforcement is protected by an
active migrating corrosion inhibitor by
forming a protective molecular layer.
This enhances concrete durability and
extends the life of the structure.
Reduction in water penetration
The use of BETOCRETE® -CP-365-CI reduces water
penetration by up to 80 %. Testing by independent
laboratories has shown a reduction of water
penetration into the concrete matrix from 25 mm to
5 mm. Concrete permeability is also lowered
roughly 10 times.

Water is the main vehicle for damaging substances
to travel throughout a concrete structure and induce
harmful chemical reactions.
The BETOCRETE® -CP-365-CI waterproofing
admixture prolongs the lifespan of concrete
structures by reducing water ingress. Independent
test reports prove a considerable improvement in
resistance to carbonization, chloride migration,
freeze-thaw cycles and chemical attack in concrete
fortified with BETOCRETE® -CP-365-CI.
“Self healing” concrete
Every time water comes in contact with
BETOCRETE-C fortified concrete, the active
ingredients generate new crystalline growth - and
the reaction continues for many years. Extensive
testing proves that BETOCRETE® -C Series products
are capable of self sealing static hairline cracks up
to 1/64” (0.5 mm).
Extending concrete longevity
Waterproofing with BETOCRETE® -C Series
products can extend the life-span of a building by
up to 75 % through providing enhanced protection
for reinforcment steel. The time until depassivation
of reinforcment in concrete can be delayed by up
to 30 years which reduces maintenance costs and
increases return on investment.
