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

Typical Applications  Rapid include building foundations, slabs, retaining walls, storage tanks, and similar non-moving cold construction joints.

SAB ® Crystal 410 methodology
·         This system is made of 2 materials: SAB ® Crystal 410 concentrate and one more other supporting material.  
·         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:
·         After 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 specificall
