DPC (Deep Penetrating Capillary) CRYSTALLIZAZION TECHNOLOGY
Deep inside the concrete substrate the SUPERSHIELD MULTISEAL form hygroscopic crystalline structure by means of a complex chemical reaction involving pressure of osmosis and Brownian movement.
The crystals can only occur where moisture is present, and thus will form in the pores, capillary tracts, and shrinkage cracks in concrete. The reaction will continue until the SUPERSHIELD MULTISEAL system chemicals are either depleted or run out of water. Chemical diffusion will take these chemicals about 12 inches minimum into the concrete.
If water has only soaked two inches into the surface, then the MULTISEAL system chemicals will only travel two inches and stop but, they still have the potential to travel 10 inches further, if water reenters the concrete at some point in the future and reactivates the chemicals.
Instead of reducing the porosity of concrete, like water reducers, plasticizers, and superplasticizers, or just covering the substrates using membranes or fluid applied membranes, SUPERSHIELD MULTISEAL system protects by three different mechanisms in single application. Because these chemical formations are within the concrete and are not exposed at the surface, they cannot be punctured or otherwise damaged like membranes or surface coatings.
SUPERSHIELD MULTISEAL system is highly resistant to chemicals where the pH range is between 3 and 11 under constant contact, and 2 to 12 under periodic contact.
SUPERSHIELD MULTISEAL will tolerate temperatures between -25 degrees Fahrenheit (-32 degrees Centigrade) and 265 degrees Fahrenheit (130 degrees Centigrade) in a constant state. Humidity, ultraviolet light, and oxygen levels have no impact on the products ability to perform.
In a nutshell SUPERSHIELD MULTISEAL system protects the concrete against its most deadly diseases.
