Koster BDM

Koster BDM

Koster BDM is a high performing liquid additive which can be used as part of a reinforced concrete mix design to comply to Type B waterproofing and can be used in all Grades according to BS 8102:2022.

Koster BDM combines three important characteristics – it crystallizes, blocks capillaries and makes the concrete water repellent. This reduces the water absorbency of the concrete, increases its Compressive Strength and resistance against chemical attack. It is free of corrosive ingredients and is non sensitive to mechanical damage to the surface.
