Compressive strength testing
3/4/1985 ALL ISLAND TESTING ASSOCIATION INC.
To Determine if the Compressive of Concrete is Affected by Treatment with Penetron
Result: The use of Penetron resulted in a strength gain of approximately 5.52% over the untreated concrete.

11/22/1993 REPORT NO. 93-4559
Shimel and Sor Testing Laboratories, Inc., Cedar Grove, NJ.
Laboratory Testing of the effects of Penetron Treatment on the Compressive Strength of Concrete
Result: The treating concrete surface with Penetron resulted in a slight increase in the compressive strength of the concrete.

12/21/1994 REPORT NO. 94-6175
Shimel and Sor Testing Laboratories, Inc., Cedar Grove, NJ.
Laboratory Testing of Penetron Waterproofing Materials
Result: As per ASTM C93, the Penetron treated and the untreated (control) cylinders were slightly higher than the untreated cylinders. This increase corresponds to approximately 6% gain over the untreated concrete. Primary benefit of Penetron is waterproofing concrete surface rather than increasing the compressive strength.
