Applications

ADMIX

The vast majority of new build projects in the UK where the Xypex crystalline system of waterproofing has been utilised, have been waterproofed using Xypex Admix, because the concrete pouring and waterproofing occur simultaneously.

This product not only speeds up the construction process but means that there is only one company responsible for the waterproofing element of the project, not three separate companies (designer, manufacturer and installer) when a membrane is utilised.

All new build structures have a project specific Design and Specification, the Design element is the dosage rate of the Xypex Admix, and the Specification element is the details for the construction joints. These are agreed in advance with the relevant consultants, contractors and the client.

The minimum thickness required for a Xypex Admix application is 150 mm. If the required piece of concrete is less than this then a coating would be the logical solution to ensure a totally waterproof structure.

Also for thicker wall sections where the use of a Xypex Admix might be cost prohibitive a coating should be considered as the solution. A coating can easily be integrated into a project that has Xypex Admix as the predominant waterproofing solution.

COATING CONCRETE

Xypex have a complete range of products for the waterproofing and reinstatement of concrete structures. These range from a very fast setting plugging mortar right through to a cementitious slurry coating for the eradication of water. Xypex has been used on a large number of projects worldwide where there is an essential requirement for a totally dry environment.

CONCRETE REPAIR

Xypex can also be used to repair concrete that has deteriorated over time and is either permeable by way of cracks or joint failures. In this instance Xypex Concentrate and Patch’n Plug is used as a repair mortar to plug and seal these failures even against high hydrostatic pressures.

MASONRY WATERPROOFING

Dependent upon substrate, Xypex have various solutions to achieve a totally waterproof solution when applied to masonry. Megamix I can be used as a cap coat for Xypex Concentrate on masonry structures even against a hydrostatic head.
