Xypex Bio-San C500 is a uniquely designed admixture for integral, long-term protection of concrete in harsh sewage conditions with levels of H2S that cause microbial induced corrosion (MIC). Bio-San C500 combines potent antimicrobial protection along with the unique crystalline technology of the Xypex Admix C-Series.
Bio-San contains bio-active mineral solids that become permanently fixed within the cement matrix impairing bio-film formation thus inhibiting the growth of acid causing sewer bacteria such as Thiobacillus due to concentrations of H2S. The unique Xypex Crystalline Technology creates a permanent structure throughout the pores and capillary tracts providing waterproofing and enhanced chemical protection including acid and sulphate resistance. Bio-San C500 prevents microbial induced corrosion, stops infiltration/exfiltration of water, and provides acid and sulphate resistance, significantly extending the service life of concrete sewage collection systems and waste water infrastructure.
