      Coatings are used either on existing concrete structures where it is impossible to use admix because the concrete is already hard or where the thickness of the concrete element wanting to be waterproofed is so thick that the use of admix becomes more expensive than the use of Xypex coating products.  In most North American markets any wall of slab thinner than about 18" is less expensively treated using Xypex admix.  The thickness of wall at which the admix or coating becomes more or less expensive than the other will depend of materials and labour costs and thus will vary by country and region.
