Xypex Corporate Brochure
Discover how, for over 50 years, Xypex crystalline waterproofing technology has been serving concrete users in over 90
This brochure is a collection of some of our Scanning Electron Microscopy (SEM) Imagery giving definitive evidence of a non-soluble crystalline structure formation in Xypex-treated concrete. Xypex Crystalline Technology truly has NO EQUAL.
Xypex in London
From the United Kingdom’s tallest building to London’s most luxurious address and a myriad of fascinating structures in-between, Xypex is there, providing products and services to make concrete better.
Xypex Admix C-Series
Xypex Admix 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 a truly integral part of the concrete matrix. Utilizing Xypex’s world-renowned crystalline technology, Xypex Admix seals the primary paths by which water and aggressive chemicals penetrate, attack, and ultimately threaten the long-term integrity of the concrete structure.
Xypex Bio-San C500
Xypex Bio-San C500 is a unique way of protecting concrete in harsh sewage conditions with high levels of hydrogen sulphide that cause microbial induced corrosion. No other admixture combines potent antimicrobial properties with Xypex Crystalline Waterproofing Technology to offer complete protection of concrete sewer and wastewater structures.
Xypex products play a key role to waterproof and protect concrete against water penetration due to hydrostatic pressure, and aggressive chemical attack – problems typically associated with the reduced service life of concrete agricultural structures.
Dams & Irrigation
The structural integrity of concrete dams and irrigation structures depends on the protection of steel reinforcement from corrosion. Inadequate waterproofing, cracking, joint failure, chemical attack, alkali aggregate reaction and abrasion are problems that will result in the deterioration of concrete. In the short term this can lead to water loss, reduction in water flow and unplanned maintenance costs.
Industrial concrete structures are constantly exposed to hydrostatic pressure, sulphates, chlorides, and other aggressive chemicals. Without proper protection, the structural integrity of the concrete is soon compromised, leading to expensive remediation efforts and a shortened life span.
Power & Utilities
Due to their very nature, concrete power and utility structures can be seriously compromised by hydrostatic pressure and chemical attack. Without proper protection, structural integrity is soon compromised, leading to expensive remediation efforts and a shortened life span.
Reinforced concrete bridges are constantly under attack by the destructive effects of moisture and chloride-induced corrosion. Without proper protection, the structural integrity of a bridge is soon compromised, leading to expensive remediation efforts and a shortened life span.
Reinforced concrete marine structures are constantly under attack by the destructive effects of moisture and chloride-induced corrosion. Without proper protection, the structural integrity of a marine structure is soon compromised, leading to expensive remediation efforts and a shortened life span.
Water Treatment Plants
The structural integrity of holding tanks in water treatment plants depends entirely on the protection of steel reinforcement from corrosion. Xypex has extensive experience in the waterproofing and protection of municipal infrastructure, and is recognized as a key player in the water treatment industry.
General Construction – Foundations
The structural integrity of building foundations, whether deep or shallow, can be seriously compromised by hydrostatic pressure and water leakages associated with high water tables. Xypex’s non-toxic Crystalline Technology protects thousands of foundations worldwide.
Wastewater Collection & Treatment
Microbial induced corrosion and water infiltration are the two major problems common to sewage collection and wastewater treatment structures. Our Xypex Crystalline Technology has been proven in rehabilitated as well as new sewage and wastewater treatment structures and is considered the best at handling chemical attack in severe biochemical conditions and resisting water infiltration even under extreme hydrostatic pressure.
Due to their very nature and location, tunnels can be seriously compromised by hydrostatic pressure and water leakages associated with high water tables. Xypex has an extensive track record in the waterproofing and protection of tunnels.
