Xypex Overview

The International World of Xypex
Concrete is the universal product that among many other things, holds water in, and keeps water out. But when concrete fails and water gets through? Big potential problems. This is the story of Xypex around the world, the concrete fixing power of a great product — and how being there with the right stuff has made Xypex a concrete waterproofing leader.

Xypex Technology

Introduction to Xypex Crystalline Technology
Concrete is porous. Its tunnel-like capillaries are a natural part of its mass, and permit the passage of water and other liquids.

Researchers at Xypex recognized the opportunity for a chemical treatment that would fill these capillaries to prevent the penetration of water and other liquids from any direction. By means of diffusion, the reactive chemicals in Xypex products use water as a migrating medium to enter and travel down the capillaries of the concrete. This process precipitates a chemical reaction between Xypex, moisture and the by-products of cement hydration, forming a new non-soluble crystalline structure. This integral structure fills the capillary tracts rendering the concrete waterproof.

Xypex Crystalline Technology Animation
How Xypex Crystalline Technology works to waterproof and protect concrete continues to hold the interest and fascination of concrete specifiers and contractors, worldwide. Our latest visual explanation is this animation video with accompanying voice and text. By way of a highly magnified view of one capillary, the animation illustrates how Xypex penetrates concrete and how the catalytic reaction that results ultimately leads to the formation of insoluble crystals and a concrete structure that is permanently waterproofed even against extreme hydrostatic pressure.

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.
