PENETRON ADMIX and Penetron’s innovative anti-microbial concrete admixture were specified as a permanent waterproofing solution – and to protect key concrete structures from microbially induced corrosion (MIC). PENETRON ADMIX, and Penetron’s anti-microbial admixture are added to the concrete mix at the time of batching. The active propriety chemicals in the admixture initiates a catalytic reaction to generate a non-soluble, lattice-like crystalline formation throughout the pores, micro-cracks and capillary tracts typically found in concrete. Penetron’s anti-microbial admixture is a permanent solution; it forms part of the concrete matrix and is leach resistant.
