The products serve as an integral waterproofing of concrete in contact with ground and water. The C series includes the world-wide one and only liquid, crystalline waterproofing concrete admixture being approved in compliance with EN 934-2. This is an effective answer to the issue of lump formation in concrete when adding powder additives of a similar kind.

The innovation of the Betocrete®-C series is therefore all the more important – the liquid, crystalline admixtures of the same are added to the fresh concrete and are latently acting until the end of the serviceability of the...
