Radmyx Capillary Waterproofing System is a complete waterproofing system for below grade concrete structures and appropriate above grade structures.. Radmyx reacts with the hydration products of cement to form crystals within the cracks, pores and capillaries of concrete structures – thereby effectively blocking the passage of water.
Radmyx can be used as an admixture, slurry coat, sprinkle or mortar and is effective within positive or negative water pressure. After crystallisation, the chemicals in Radmyx remain dormant in the concrete until subsequent contact with water reactivates the Radmyx sealing process.
- Versatile - use as a slurry or mortar to repair or as a sprinkle or admixture in new construction.
- Simple - Application is straightforward and effective
- Low risk - unlike membranes which can delaminate, deteriorate or puncture
- Convenient – Back-filling staight away (admixture)
- Durable - Remains reactive in the concrete.
- Efficient – Speeds up construction, saving money
- Safe - Radmyx is non-toxic, VOC free, safe for potable water
Roof slabs (in certain conditions)

How it Works
What does Radmyx do? Active chemicals in Radmyx react with the by-products of cement hydration to form insoluble, fibre-like crystals. These crystals fill the cracks, pores and capillaries in the concrete and stop the flow of water and resultant leakage through the concrete.
How does Radmyx do it? It is the process of osmosis that enables the Radmyx crystals to migrate through the concrete. Osmosis is where compounds of higher concentration move through a semi permeable barrier (concrete) to areas of low concentration. The crystals produced by the reaction of Radmyx move from their highest concentration - i.e. as applied to the surface (slurry) or distributed through the matrix (admixture) - to where they are needed most, that being where the water is present to reactivate and stop the leakage.
Radmyx can be mixed into "Readymade" form then used as a dry shake material broadcast on to slabs and worked into the surface during the finishing operation by helicopter.
