SAB® Crystal 410is a unique sealing compound designed to expand rapidly when exposed to moisture making it a self-healing joint material for construction joint applications.

SAB®Crystal 410 methodology

As preparation:
  • Cleaning scope of work area properly.
  • Spraying the outer side with water, the Property of this material it needs wet area to make the required strong interaction. 
  • Puncture the surface by making tiny holes, this will ensure perfect absorption.
  • Cleaning these small holes and insures it dry; taking into consideration the whole area is still wet. 
How to implement: 
  • Mixing SAB®Crystal 410 concentrate with desalinated water, in this standard : each one amount of water requires three amounts of this material. The blended quantity should be using within 30 minutes.
  • Then we start to fill the holes with this mixture and smoothing these holes to be matching with the whole surface.
  • Treating the joint area between water tank ground and walls. 
  • As final step: implement the supporting material over these holes within 6 hours at latest.

 SAB®Crystal 410 specification:

professional performing this system will form integral part from the concrete slab even in slab crash cases.

  • Its implementation could be on any concrete slab sides.
  • Water proofing system and having high resistance against chemicals materials. 
  • Effective against hydrostatic pressure.
  • Easy to apply with shortage time and cost.
  • Doesn’t weaken the concrete or breaking it.
  • Doesn’t need any extra protection after execution. 
  • Minimizing the existing cracks.
  • Non poison as well as eco-friendly. So it is safe to be used as a waterproofing material inside or outside the water tank.
  • Protect the concrete slab and the inner supporting iron.
  • Lightweight materials moreover, it can be used even on an old concrete without adding an extra weight. While in other insulation system we have to consider this matter specifically.
