Remedial Contracting, Project Management and Service Delivery

Xypex concrete products have been tested and proven by applicators around the world for more than forty years.

Xypex Admix C-Series is a specialty product that is blended into the concrete at the time of batching. It outperforms other methods because of its unique ability to become an integral part of the concrete matrix.

As an admixture, Xypex Admix C-Series will not only positively affect the fresh and hardened concrete properties such as workability and concrete strength. Our test results confirm that Xypex crystalline formation enhances the durability properties of hardened concrete significantly. Concrete with Xypex Admix C-Series is still handled, placed, finished and cured as usual. In other words, concrete containing Xypex Admix C-Series still behaves like concrete.

Xypex products are suitable for both new and existing concrete structures requiring repair or rehabilitation. Typical applications of Xypex product in a remedial scenarios include crack repair, spalling repair and surface protection. 

The Xypex crystalline system for concrete waterproofing and protection is substantially different from traditional barrier products (membranes, cementitious coatings, etc): 

  • Xypex creates a crystalline structure deep within the pores and capillary tracts of the concrete mass to prevent the penetration of water and aggressive chemicals. In contrast, barrier type products function only at the surface of concrete.
  • Because Xypex is not dependent on surface adhesion to achieve its waterproofing effect, it is resistant to extreme hydrostatic pressure.
  • Xypex seals hairline cracks up to 0.4 mm.
  • Xypex is not subject to the deterioration problems encountered by membranes.
  • Xypex is designed to be permanent and reactivates whenever water is present. 

The key benefits of Xypex Products for Contractors:

  • Step-by-step application instructions
  • Enhance jobsite productivity
  • Save time, build faster
  • Reduce labour and workmanship issues
