Xypex Chemical Corporation is pleased to announce that the Xypex 2020 Best International Project Award of the Year winner is MC-Bauchemie Brasil for the Canal do Sertão project. The winner was chosen from amongst the five Regional Winners from Latin America, Europe, Africa, Middle East and Asia. These awards recognize the achievements of Xypex’s international network of distributors and celebrate their dedication to provide first-class technical service to Xypex customers.
Canal do Sertão - Hinterland Water Channel, a 1,000+ km water channel which brings water from Brazil’s 5th largest river, the São Francisco, to the extremely dry Sertão Nordestino region of Brazil, needed urgent repairs in its early stages of construction as the elevated aqueducts had suffered thermal/dry shrinkage cracks every 2 meters – more than 2,000 linear meters of leaking cracks. The application of Xypex Concentrate and Modified was a resounding success, stopping all leaks within 30 days of application, saving significant time and costs, and avoiding the injection of the extensive cracking. This led to Xypex products becoming an important component of the whole project, solving the waterproofing challenges and enabling the timely delivery of all stages of this crucial project for the Sertão Nordestino region of Brazil.
Xypex also awarded Regional Best Project Awards 2020.
