      Hi everybody
      According to the exclusive distribuitor of Xipex in Mexico there is only available Xipex 2000 as admixture for concrete, we know our needs are full covered if we use Xipex 1000 and we can import it from San Diego,  is it posible to use Xipex 2000 in half of dosage stated in the data sheet??

      Thanks

      Sambigotes,

      C-1000 may be dosed at 2% (for waterproofing) and up to 3% (for waterproofing and chemical protection) by weight of the self cementing materials in the mix, typically the cement and slag.  C-2000 should only be dosed to a 2% maximum due to the extended delay set.  We strongly recommend that you confirm dosage with a Xypex technical representative after your mix design has been finalized.
      Note that you might want to contact our Area Manager for Central and South America:  Mauricio Davila - mauricio.davila@xypex.com - 52-1-55-1904-5181.  As you can see, Mauricio is located in Mexico and he may have some recommendations in terms of sourcing Xypex products.
