Approximately 40 miles northeast of Indianapolis, Frankfort is a city of about 15,000 and the county seat of Clinton County in central Indiana. When the city’s water utility, Frankfort’s Water Works, began having difficulty meeting the community’s water demands, a $5.3 million project to expand water treatment capacity – for both Frankfort and the adjacent town of Jefferson, IN – was launched.
PENETRON ADMIX is a blend of Portland cement, very fine-treated silica, and active, proprietary chemicals. Mixed with fresh concrete, it triggers a catalytic reaction to form a non-soluble crystalline structure throughout the pores and capillary tracts of the concrete, sealing it tightly from water or liquid penetration. This enables the concrete to resist extreme hydrostatic pressure from either the positive or negative surface of the concrete element and also self-seals any hairline cracks. The PENETRON ADMIX-treated concrete elements remain permanently waterproof over the service life of the concrete.
