      This a a partial list of Crystalline waterproofing's advantages over membranes:  it can not be punctured or torn, there are no seams or joints that can leak, it never wears out or needs to be maintained, it can be applied at the time of construction or after the fact on the negative side, it has no VOC's associated with it, it does not inhibit the ability to recycle the concrete, it can be installed at the time of pouring the concrete thus eliminating a step in a project, it can be applied to existing concrete at any time, it requires a low level of skilled labour to install, it resists many chemicals from acids to bases to petroleum based products, can be applied to a wet surface, requires a low level of surface preparation and finally, it is usually much less expensive than traditional waterproofing membranes.
