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
SEBRE a.s., the developer of this project, trusted Xypex’s concrete waterproofing technology to permanently waterproof the three-story below-grade concrete. This successful project was made possible by the support provided by Xypex’s official representative, Nekap, during the pre-project and project execution phases.
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.
