    Introduction to Xypex Crystalline Technology

    Basic to the development of Xypex Crystalline Technology was a thorough understanding of concrete's chemical and physical makeup. Concrete is porous. Its tunnel-like capillaries are a natural part of its mass, and permit the passage of water and other liquids.

    Researchers at Xypex recognized the opportunity for a chemical treatment that would fill these capillaries to prevent the penetration of water and other liquids from any direction. By means of diffusion, the reactive chemicals in Xypex products use water as a migrating medium to enter and travel down the capillaries of the concrete. This process precipitates a chemical reaction between Xypex, moisture and the by-products of cement hydration, forming a new non-soluble crystalline structure. This integral structure fills the capillary tracts rendering the concrete waterproof.

    The International World of Xypex

    Concrete is the universal product that among many other things, holds water in, and keeps water out. But when concrete fails and water gets through? Big potential problems. This is the story of Xypex around the world, the concrete fixing power of a great product — and how being there with the right stuff has made Xypex a concrete waterproofing leader.

    Xypex Crystalline Technology Animation

    How Xypex Crystalline Technology works to waterproof and protect concrete continues to hold the interest and fascination of concrete specifiers and contractors, worldwide. Our latest visual explanation is the attached animation video with accompanying voice and text. By way of a highly magnified view of one capillary, the animation illustrates how Xypex penetrates concrete and how the catalytic reaction that results ultimately leads to the formation of insoluble crystals and a concrete structure that is permanently waterproofed even against extreme hydrostatic pressure.
