The Right Way to Use a Concrete Waterproofing Admixture

If you’ve worked with concrete in the past, you know that this highly durable material can decrease in performance even if it is mixed and placed correctly. If concrete isn’t handle properly from the start, it can deteriorate over time, leading to water penetration that has the potential to create costly, time-consuming issues. It can be difficult, however, to ensure your concrete is mixed and placed so perfectly it won’t be vulnerable to breakdown. That’s why Tecnorap USA’s advanced concrete waterproofing admixture, CWS Admix, is so convenient and effective.


CWS Admix
is a combination of moisture-activated chemicals, high-grade fine aggregates, and selected high-performance cements. When you mix the product with water, you can apply it either to the surface of concrete or add it to fresh concrete as an admixture. This will activate the product’s crystalline chain reaction that acts quickly to completely fill all fissures and cracks, providing watertight concrete that is still able to breath properly. Since it naturally repels moisture, CWS Admix will continue to reactivate when in contact with any water in the future, acting proactively to reseal the concrete over and over again.

The Benefits of CWS Admix: a Trusted Concrete Admixture

Tecnorap’s CWS Admix is unlike any other product in the construction industry, providing a range of benefits you can’t find all in one single product elsewhere. Our concrete admixture’s benefits include:

  • Lifelong waterproofing that won’t deteriorate
  • Immediate protection, eliminating delays
  • Dormant waterproofing protection
  • Protection from steel reinforcement corrosion
  • Use with negative & positive water pressure
  • Breathability while remaining waterproof
  • Water bar replacement in static construction joints
  • Faster activation with increased water exposure
  • Performance isn’t reliant on adhesion or coating thickness

Not to mention, CWS Admix is seamless, jointless, non-toxic, and self-healing. This revolutionary product is the gift that keeps on giving for those who work with concrete in the construction industry.

How to Use Our Waterproofing Admixture

For best results, CWS Admix should be applied at the initial construction state, when possible. Our waterproofing admixture is most effective when added to fresh concrete at the time of mixing. This guarantees the product’s innovative waterproofing properties will be instantly active throughout the concrete, ensuring lifelong moisture protection. CWS Admix is suitable for use within concrete basements, water tanks and towers, reservoirs, swimming pools, water treatment works, dams, canals, harbors, concrete pipes, lift pits, and more.
