The German patent confirmation from 1952. The founder of Vandex invented crystalline waterproofing technology in 1943 – founding a whole new industry and gaining Worldwide recognition for crystalline performance and unparalleled high quality of crystalline technology in waterproofing and protection of concrete
Vandex provide innovative yet simple solutions for keeping structures dry and safe, and avoiding chemical attack – even in demanding environments such as those required in the potable water industry.
Vandex products are used to preserve and protect structures through our 7 core technologies for the waterproofing and protection of all types of concrete.
Section of dry contrete wall showing the natural free lime and moisture in the capillary system
Concrete wall exposed to water. The water has forced it's way into the cappillaries. Longterm effect: leaky, damaged concrete
Vandex crystalline treatment: The reaction between the free lime, moisture and the Vandex chemicals has set in.
The concrete is now watertight. Vandex penetrates the concrete forming crystals which substanially constrict the capillaries but still allow water vapour to pass.
Vandex crystals remain in the concrete, ready to reactivate upon water impact. The crystals have now penetrated deeply into the solid contcrete
Vandex crystalline products stop water from penetrating concrete. For drinking water applications, Vandex coatings also exceed the required high hygienic standards. As one of the market leaders in technical skills and crystalline technology knowledge, Vandex has for decades had an excellent international reputation. Vandex is certified to ISO 9001 and 14001 quality and environmental management systems which verifies that Vandex meets the requirements of international quality and environmental management standards.
Vandex is proud to present our latest findings from our studies into the core crystalline chemistry and the resulting effects on modern high quality concrete. You are most welcome to request further information once you have made your way through this web site
