The Riviera Wongamat Beach, Chonburi


The Riviera Wongamat is a luxury high-rise condominium development located in one of Pattaya’s premier addresses. Designed by Steven Leach + Associates, The Riviera comprises two tall towers that provide over 38,500 m2 of residential space.

Built near the beach front, the harsh marine environment and high chloride/sulphate nature of the ground, required solutions which could tackle all the problems associated with sea-front construction. Xypex products were selected to provide the necessary protection to the concrete structures making up the water tanks, waste water tanks, swimming pools and lift pits.

As part of the construction process, our joint sealing solution (Superswell 47b & Xypex Concentrate) was used to waterproof joints between adjacent wall/floor castings. 1100kg of Xypex Admix C-1000NF was used in selected areas of the cast walls and floors, whilst our Xypex Concentrate coating system was applied to 2700 m2 of previously cast walls/floors. Both these performance based solutions allow the products to become an integral part of the structure, and permanently provide protection against the high acid / high chloride conditions, that were inherent in the site, whist simultaneously waterproofing the 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
