Xycrylic Admix is a water-based, high solids, polymer dispersion specifically designed for fortifying Portland cement compositions. This liquid is milky-white in color and improves curing qualities, enhances bond, imparts excellent water and weather resistance, and reduces shrinkage cracking. Xycrylic Admix is also used to fortify Xypex Patch’n Plug. Cement mortars modified with Xycrylic Admix are hard, tough and durable. Compared with unmodified mortars, Xycrylic modified mortars have far superior flexural, adhesive and impact strengths as well as excellent abrasion resistance. They are especially useful where thin sections are desirable and where excessive vibration and heavy traffic is encountered. Cement mortars modified with Xycrylic Admix are resistant to many industrial chemicals as well as ultraviolet light and heat.

Xycrylic Admix Application Details
Lower Meramec Wastewater Treatment Plant
Once all joints and cracks had been repaired, the entire interior concrete surface of the lift station—up to 117 feet—was treated with a three-product system consisting of a base layer of Xypex Concentrate, a reinforcing layer of Xypex Modified and a final treatment of Xypex Gamma Cure, a curing accelerant and evaporation retarder. Approximately 34,000 ft2 of concrete were treated with Xypex products, amounting to about 21,000 pounds of product.
Martin Mortuary of Grand Junction
The basement of the Martin Mortuary in Grand Junction was in need of immediate rehabilitation due to water infiltration. Xypex products were selected to treat the leaking cracks and construction joints. The products included were: Xypex Concentrate, Patch’n Plug, Gamma Cure, Quickset, Megamix I & II and Xycrylic Admix. During the application, new leaks were discover and also treated with Xypex. The project has been visited a year after completion and the basement remains dry.
Highland Park High School
University of Illinois – Natural History Building
The Natural History building on the University of Illinois campus was originally built in 1892 and is on the National Register of Historic Places. In 2010 the building was completely evacuated due to structural deficiencies and the building began necessary renovations. Xypex Megamix II and Patch'n Plug repaired and protected, the below grade limestone foundation. Patch'n Plug specifically repaired a large amount of the original mortar joints and Xycrylic Admix fortified an area at the opening of a steam tunnel. The project completion is December 2016.
Penn State University – Steidle Hall
The Steidle Hall building on the Penn State University Campus, built in 1929, recently underwent a complete top to bottom renovation. Xypex Concentrate, Megamix I, Megamix II, Xycrylic Admix and Patch'n Plug repaired and protected the old rubble foundation of the building. Xypex proved successful and to this day the basement remains dry.
