M Tower is a commercial office building located close to the Chao Praya river in the heart of the prestigious business district of Bangkok.
The project design called for ultra-low maintenance with a completely watertight structure both below ground and in the rooftop water storage tanks. The sub soils in this area are high in chloride concentrations and have a very high water table, due to the proximity of the river mouth to the Gulf of Siam.
Xypex Coating systems were specified to provide the required watertightness, protection from chloride attack, and give the structure durability with low maintenance costs.
Our construction joint system was also installed using Superswell 47B and Xypex Concentrate in both the underground and rooftop water tank structures.
Xypex Admix C-1000 NF is a unique powdered form admixture that has been formulated to make the concrete completely watertight and waterproof. It outperforms other methods because of its unique ability to become a truly integral part of the concrete matrix.
Xypex Gamma Cure is a curing agent designed specifically for Xypex crystalline waterproofing products. Its use may eliminate the need for water curing the Xypex coating in some cases.
