When it comes to concrete, durability and longevity are paramount. The need for a reliable waterproofing solution is undeniable. Basecrete Intercept Densifier is a game-changer in the world of concrete treatments, offering a highly penetrating and viscous solution that not only waterproofs the surface but also strengthens the concrete from within. 

The Science Behind Intercept

Basecrete Intercept is not a typical concrete densifier. It stands out due to its unique ability to penetrate deeply into the concrete matrix on a molecular level. This deep penetration is what sets it apart from traditional concrete sealers. Upon application, Intercept starts working its way through the concrete, seeking out and filling all the voids that exist within the structure.

One of Intercept’s most impressive qualities is its bonding capability with the free calcium and lime present in the concrete. Through this chemical interaction, it converts into a dense waterproof barrier made of colloidal silicate gel. This transformation is the key to its remarkable waterproofing abilities. However, it’s important to note that Intercept doesn’t suffocate the concrete; it allows the concrete to “breathe,” enabling vapors from within to escape, which is crucial to the longevity of the structure.

The Many Benefits of Basecrete Intercept

Waterproofing Excellence

The primary role of Intercept is to waterproof the concrete surface effectively. Its ability to form a waterproof barrier means that structures remain safe from moisture-related damage.

Concrete Strengthening

Intercept doesn’t stop at waterproofing; it also contributes to the structural integrity of the concrete. By filling voids and bonding with the existing minerals, it strengthens the concrete from within, ensuring it can withstand the test of time.

Hydration Control

Intercept plays a vital role in controlling the hydration process of new concrete. This control helps prevent issues like cracking and ensures that the concrete cures uniformly.

Salts Exfoliation

For areas with entrapped salts, Intercept can work wonders. It aids in exfoliating these salts, preventing potential deterioration of the concrete over time.

Rust Prevention

Intercept is a valuable ally in the battle against rust formation on rebar within the concrete. By reducing moisture penetration, it minimizes the conditions that lead to rust.

ASR Reduction

Alkali silica reactivity (ASR) is a common issue in concrete structures. Intercept can help reduce ASR, thereby prolonging the life of concrete structures.

Accelerated Curing

Intercept also accelerates the curing time of concrete, allowing users to expedite construction projects without compromising quality.

Basecrete Intercept Densifier is a groundbreaking product that addresses the most critical concerns associated with concrete structures.
