Extending the Service Life4

The Marvel Experience, Samut Prakan


An 8,000 square metre adventure experience (based on the ‘Marvel Comics’ theme), is part of the Mega Bangna complex in south east Bangkok.  The structure is made up of seven domed buildings.

The project requirements called for a high quality water-proofing system with low maintenance costs and a long service life. The construction time schedule needed the work to be completed quickly and efficiently.

Over 1200 kg of Xypex products were used to provide waterproofing, corrosion resistance and durability to potable water tanks and lift & escalator pits. The roof slabs were constructed with Xypex Admix C-1000NF as part of the mix design, to allow for efficient construction times.

To benefit from our one-stop service, the project also selected our construction joint water stop system using Corkjoint Superswell 47B and Xypex Concentrate, which was installed in the water tank structures.

Xypex Product(s) Used
  • Xypex C-1000 NF

    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 Concentrate

    Apply as a cementitious slurry to the surface of existing above-or-below-grade structures to waterproof and protect the concrete against high hydrostatic pressure.

  • Xypex Gamma Cure

    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.

  • M P&P Mortar

    Is a fast-setting, non-shrink, mortar for concrete repairs where waterproofing is a requirement. M P&P Mortar is used for sealing cracks to stop water flows and other defects in concrete, as well as sealing tie bolt holes.

  • Xypex Megamix II

    Is a high build repair mortar for the patching and resurfacing of deteriorated concrete.

  • Xypex Patch'n Plug

    Formulated as a crystalline, fast-setting, hydraulic cement compound for concrete patching and repair. It stops flowing water in seconds and is used to seal cracks, fill tie-holes and other defects in concrete.
