Xypex Patch’n Plug is a specially designed, fast-setting hydraulic cement compound for concrete patching and repair. It stops flowing water in seconds and is used to seal cracks, tie holes, and other defects in concrete. The high performance characteristics of Patch’n Plug are enhanced by Xypex’s unique Crystalline Waterproofing Technology.
Advantages of Xypex
- Single component (simply add water)
- Very rapid setting
- Contains Xypex’s unique crystalline chemistry
for self-healing of cracks and other defects
- Quick return to service of water holding structures
- Cement based – compatible with concrete and
- No VOCs
- NSF 61 certified
- Stopping an active flow of water through cracks
- Repair of concrete substrates before the application of Xypex coating materials
- Repair of leaking construction joints
- Sealing around pipe penetrations
Available in 20 lb. (9.1 kg) pails and 60 lb. (27.2 kg) pails.
One 60 lb. (27.2 kg) pail of Xypex Patch’n Plug will produce 0.54 cubic feet (0.0154 cu. metres) of mortar.
Xypex products must be stored dry at a minimum temperature of 45ºF (7ºC). Shelf life is one year when stored under proper conditions.

Xypex recommended procedures for repairing slabs, walls and other flat concrete surfaces that have dry or leaking cracks and cold/construction joints.
Xypex recommended procedures for repairing wall to slab interface joints and other 90 degree concrete joints; including dry or leaking joints.
Xypex recommended blends of Concentrate and Patch’n Plug to create a longer pot life workable repair mortar that can replace Xypex Concentrate Dry-Pac for many Xypex repair scenarios and procedures.
Xypex recommended procedures and general directions for repairing standard, small to large sized spalls, honeycombs, and other deficiencies.
Xypex recommended procedures for repairing water leaks between conduit, pipe and other utility features (including steel, iron, PVC and HDPE piping) and the concrete elements they pass through.
Xypex recommended procedures for repairing leaking form-ties based on the typical “Plastic Cone Snap Tie” forming tie system (can be modified for other styles of form-ties).

Erdenet Settling Tanks
Erdenet Mining Corporation SOE, situated in the northwestern region of Mongolia, is Asia's premier copper ore mining and processing facility and ranks as the world's seventh largest. This extensive complex processes more than 26 million tonnes of ore, yielding approximately 530,000 tonnes of copper concentrate and around 4,500 tonnes of molybdenum concentrate annually.
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.
Yankee Lake Regional Wastewater Treatment Facility
To start repair works, the general contractor, Crom Corporation, first blasted the old concrete surfaces with a 3,000-psi pressure washer to remove the old epoxy coating, then disinfected the substrate to remove bacteria present on the surface. After these steps, cracks and joints were repaired with Xypex Patch’n Plug and Concentrate.
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.
