Betocrete C Series

Now a worldwide established technology, crystalline concrete waterproofing has moved past traditional static capillary liner and pore blocking systems. These are unable to deal with any post cured secondary cracking without incurring remedial costs, wheras our product offers designers the chance to have a system that is “Permanently Active.” Wherever water and free lime are present crystalline growth continues, protecting the concrete for the life span of the structure.

The Betocrete C series product group is a next generation crystalline concrete waterproofing additive with innovative and permanently active 2 in 1 technology, which is both a hydrophobic and micro pore blocking admixture using crystal forming ingredients. These produce millions of nano-crystals to stop water transport mechanisms, thus increasing the long-term durability of the concrete.

Double the power to waterproof and protect concrete.

The 2-in-1 technology

Crystalline technology reduces water penetration through the formation of nano-crystals

+

Hydrophobic waterproofing agent additionally minimises the penetration and absorption of water.

The smallest pores and micro cracks become filled with crystals and are impermeable to capillary water – FOE becomes FRIEND, as any water penetrating the structure behaves as an activating mechanism for the crystalline ingredients throughout the entire concrete element.

Crystalline Reaction How does it work?

Reduction in water penetration.  

  • Water is passing through the capillaries and cracks
  • Waterborne harmful materials also penetrate inside the structure
  • These materials can attack the concrete structure and reinforcement
  • In addition to this the expansion/freezing water will result in spalling
  • The beginning of reaction of the crystallization
  • The passing water and the solved CO2 reacts with un-hydrated cement CA(OH)2 BETOCRETE - C
  • Nanoscale crystals are starting to grow at the sides of the cracks and capillaries
  • When this process is complete the whole structure of the concrete is waterproof and protected against moisture ingress

“Self healing” Concrete 

With every new contact with water, the active ingredients form new crystals – and remain “Permanently Active” throughout the life of the structure.

Extensive tests show that products in the BETOCRETE-C series will achieve an auto-reactive, crack-healing function with outwardly spreading cracks up to 0.5 mm and continuous cracks up to 0.4 mm. This lowers the repair costs of the building.

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.

Operational Advantages

  • Unique 2 in 1 technology provides a higher level of protection than static or existing crystalline systems.
  • Easy application - Betocrete 360P is dosed into the concrete at the batching plant, using ISO 9001 controlled factory produced pre-measured bags – 1 17kg bag per 6m3 concrete truck.
  • The concrete itself is the waterproof membrane.
  • atal recommend using ready-mixed concrete suppliers operating under the Quality Scheme for Ready mixed Concrete (QSRMC) or BSI Kitemark scheme only.

Prices are competitive & deliveries arrive as agreed.

- Richard Cleghorn MCIOB, MJL Group Limited

‘’Project architects, RDA liaised with Atal to bring forward a set of waterproofing and tanking details to ensure a water tight lower ground floor level within the setting of the original Bristol Evening Post print factory basement.  Atal provided us with design drawings and specifications founded on their product range and comprehensive industry experience, with which we were able to confidently develop our working drawing package.’’

- Rich Brown – Russ Drage Architects

‘’We had the fortune of being introduced to Atal via our main contractor. We were very pleased with the work they carried out. Although we had some challenges with some leaks with our new build Atal was able to identify the source of the problem very quickly and resolve it immediately. I would have no hesitation in recommending Atal.’’

- Prakash Patel – Hertz

‘’We have completed the groundworks package and almost completed the RC frame package at ‘’3 Glass Wharf’’ in Bristol on behalf of HMRC through Wates Construction. Throughout this project 4D Structures worked alongside Atal UK to ensure the waterproofing elements involved were installed to the highest standard. It was a pleasure working with Atal from design stage right through to the final sign off. They provide a brilliant service from design, supply of materials and also on site help and pre pour inspections. I would highly recommend them and look forward to working with them again in the near future.’

- Jordan Keyes – 4D Structures

‘’Atal have provided consistently quality products, on time at very competitive prices when compared to other high spec structural waterproofing brands. Customer Service has also been consistently, and the inclusion of detailed design documents tailored to specific projects goes above and beyond what other waterproofing companies are often willing to do. Overall, Atal have provided reliable, high quality products and customer service every time we have required their expertise’’ 

- Tom Luscombe – D Wall Construction Services

‘’We have been working with Dave and his team since the inception of the company and it is no surprise at all that the company continues to flourish. The services that Atal offers are unique and un-rivalled in the UK waterproofing industry, and it’s the reason why we as designers and our supply chain partners continue to use them. Keep up the good work Atal!’’
