Penetron® – Concrete Waterproofing Systems

Penetron® is the world's leading integral crystalline concrete waterproofing and repair systems exclusively stocked and sold in the UK by Scott Parnell.

Added as either an admixture to freshly batched concrete and shotcrete, or as a surface coating to existing concrete structures, Penetron® systems protect and increase the service life of concrete assets against aggressive conditions.

Penetron® can be added as an admixture to freshly batched concrete or shotcrete, or sprayed as a surface coating to existing concrete structures.
