Xypex Admixtures are added to the concrete at the time of batching, making it easy to install, and unlike other waterproofing methods, require less trades on site and shorten the time required for installation. The Admix C-Series has been specially formulated to meet varying project and temperature conditions.
Admix C-500/C-500 NF is formulated to have minimal or no effect on setting time. Admix C-1000/C-1000 NF is formulated for concrete mix designs where a normal or mildly delayed set is desired. Admix C-2000/C-2000 NF is designed for warmer climates and projects where a slower hydration rate is typically required. Admix C-500 NF Red and Admix C-1000 Red contains a red oxide pigment as a quality assurance measure for precasters.

Admix Application Details
Delhi Metro Rail Corporation (DMRC) Phase III & Phase IV
Due to the success of the Xypex surface-applied and repair system in various projects, the Delhi Metro engineering team consulted Xypex to provide a waterproofing solution for phase III. The engineering team specified Xypex Admix C-2000 NF and Xypex Concentrate for the waterproofing of phase III underground stations in conjunction with spray applied membranes on the rooftop slab.
Quarles Water Treatment Plant
In 2012, after 58 years of service, Plant No. 1 showed the effects of age from decades of service. The concrete in Plant No. 1 suffered deterioration, including exposed rebar, exposed aggregate, loss of surface paste and spalling. CCMWA called on water engineering experts Hazen and Sawyer to study its operation and make a recommendation for Plant No. 1. The team recommended replacing the original plant with a new plant with a capacity of 33 mgd that could be expanded to 66 mgd in the future.
Byty Malešice II Building
Xypex Admix C-1000 NF was selected to waterproof the concrete foundation slab, walls, lift shafts and sumps due to its ability to simplify the project and save time and money. Xypex representative, Nekap, provided support during the pre-project phase and the project execution as part of our “Being There” philosophy.
Köse İvedik Trade Center
The project engineers solved the problem differently;
instead of applying a membrane, they poured concrete
that incorporated Xypex at the batching stage.
Xypex Admix C-1000 NF was used to waterproof
over 15,000 cubic meters of concrete placed in the
structure’s basement from the casting stage. Also,
tie-rod holes and cold joint areas were repaired with
Xypex Patch´n Plug and Xypex Concentrate.
Projects Using This Product
Amos Rex Art Museum
Budapest Pedestrian Tunnel
The key challenges in building this pedestrian tunnel were the high water table created by the close proximity of the Danube River and addressing the need to prevent interruption of traffic flow on the street between the buildings. The street is both a major thoroughfare for cars as well as a street car line. The tunnel needed to be water tight to create a comfortable pedestrian space and the traffic needed to be maintained throughout the construction phase.
Rod el Farag Axis Bridge
More than one million cubic meters of concrete was used to build the bridge, which was used in the bridge decking, girders, and six 92 m (302 ft) tall concrete towers that support 160 steel support cables. One of the key challenges for the bridge designers was how to adequately protect the critical concrete structures from the effects of air pollution and the moist riverine environment.
Sorek Desalination Plant
After thorough investigation, the project design team chose to include 1.5% of Xypex C-500 NF Admixture in the concrete mix to both heal cracks as well as improve the overall chloride durability of the pipe. As the pipe was jacked into place visible leaking was seen in the pipe sections. All visible leakage was seen to heal and the project became so impressed with Xypex’s crack healing ability that the use of the Xypex Admix was extended in the project to include most of the water processing and holding structures as well as the pipe.
Taylor Shellfish Processing Facility
Blacklick Creek Sanitary Interceptor Sewer
To further protect the concrete tunnel from the harsh conditions expected during its projected 100-year lifespan and to ensure watertight operation, the high performance concrete mix was enhanced with Xypex Admix C-500.
Panama Canal – Chamber Walls & Gatun Lock Culverts
The aggressive marine environment surrounding the over 80-year-old Panama Canal had caused substantial deterioration of the canal’s concrete. Xypex Admix C-2000 was used in the concrete repair mortar to rehabilitate the walls of the gatun lock chambers and conduits.
