Chemical treatment for waterproofing, dampproofing, protection and repair of concrete

MonoProof MD is a surface applied, unique chemical treatment for the waterproofing, protection and repair of concrete. It consists of grey Portland cement, specially treated quartz sand and fillers, and a compound of active chemicals MonoProof MD can be applied as a second coat to reinforce MonoProof Conc, or applied by itself to damp-proof the exterior of foundation walls. Applied as a second coat, MonoProof MD chemically reinforces MonoProof Conc where two coats are required and produces a harder finish. Where damp-proofing is required, a single coat of Modified may be used as an alternative to a spray/tar emulsion. MonoProof MD prevents the penetration of water and other liquids from any direction by causing a catalytic reaction that produces a non-soluble crystalline formation within the pores and capillary tracts of concrete and cement-based materials. MonoProof MD is a particularly suitable slurry for filling air bubbles and voids in weak and porous surfaces.

When MonoProof Crystalline Waterproofing is applied to a concrete surface the active chemicals combine with the free lime and moisture present in the capillary tract, to form insoluble crystalline complexes. These crystals block the capillaries and minor shrinkage cracks in the concrete to prevent any further water ingress (even under pressure). However, the MonoProof Crystalline Waterproofing layer will still allow the passage of water vapor through the structure (i.e. the concrete will still be able to "breathe"). In addition to waterproofing the structure, MonoProof Crystalline Waterproofing protects concrete against sea water, waste water, aggressive ground water and certain chemical solutions.
