Extending the Service Life4

The Street Ratchada

This new shopping mall in central Bangkok was constructed with 22,000 m2 of retail space, and based on a 'loft' design concept. One of the developers key requirements was to ensure tenants did not suffer disruption to their businesses with excessive maintenance, as the structure aged.  

Key to this was ensuring systems were used which could provide durability & waterproofing to many areas of the project. A broad range of Xypex products were specified for waste water tanks, potable water tanks, lift and escalator pits, roof decks and guttering, and the architectural fountain areas.

Xypex Admix C-1000NF  was specified in the roof slabs and rain collection areas to ensure efficient construction methods could be used. Water tanks were treated with our coating products (after making good minor construction defects with repair products) to meet the potable water requirements and crucially, the chemical resistance needed for the waste water tanks. Additionally, concrete construction joints in the tanks and the fountain areas were made watertight using our superswell products coupled with Xypex Concentrate.


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.
