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.

Xypex Admixtures now contain the latest in Xypex innovation, the Visual Detection System (VDS). It is designed to confirm the presence of Xypex Crystalline Waterproofing Admixture in hardened concrete. To learn more about VDS, click here: VDS

For ease of use, Xypex Admix is available in pails, bags or soluble bags.

The Faculty of Medicine at Charles University in Pilsen UniMeC Campus

For over seventy years, the Faculty of Medicine at Charles University in Pilsen, Czech Republic was housed in a historical building not designed for educational purposes. To meet the evolving needs of modern teaching and research, Charles University initiated the construction of a new university medical center (UniMeC campus) adjacent to the University Hospital Pilsen in Lochotín, Czech Republic.

Grain Silos

Behira, Smouha & Bani Mazar, Elmenya, Egypt

To waterproof and safeguard new grain silos in Behira, Smouha, and Bani Mazar, Elmenya, contractors applied Xypex Admix C 1000 NF to the horizontal slabs and used Xypex Concentrate for wall repairs. This approach was specifically designed to shield the structures from up to 8 meters of hydrostatic pressure, thereby enhancing their durability and waterproofing capabilities. The use of Xypex products in this project markedly increased the concrete's durability and the silos' overall longevity, ensuring they remain resilient against environmental pressures.

Biogas Plant Anaerobic Digestors

Mramorak, Serbia

The Mramorak biogas plant in Serbia, operational since December 2019, represents a pivotal advancement in renewable energy technologies, specifically in converting organic waste into biogas. This project underscores the importance of selecting construction materials that can withstand the harsh conditions of anaerobic digestion—a process where microorganisms decompose organic matter without oxygen, producing biogas but also creating a highly corrosive environment for conventional concrete.

Projects Using This Product

General Construction Foundation

Amos Rex Art Museum

The design team for the new Amos Rex Museum considered many solutions for waterproofing the underground art galleries and storage areas but ultimately chose Xypex Admix C-1000 NF to protect against the high water table because of its proven track record in similar high-profile projects worldwide.

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.

Water Treatment Plants

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.

Precast Structures

Taylor Shellfish Processing Facility

Xypex Admix C-500 is providing built-in permanent protection against the harsh saltwater environment in the new wet processing facilities at Taylor Shellfish Farms. Saves construction time and eliminates future maintenance.
Wastewater Collection & Treatment

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.

Marine Structures

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.
