Xypex products play a key role in the waterproofing of concrete against water leakage, extreme hydrostatic pressure, the effects
of sulfate attack and crack or joint failure.
Xypex products used: Admix
Three, four and six Broadgate were demolished to allow for construction of a 12-storey office building with two basement floors that will deliver state of the art trading facilities. Xypex was selected to replace the specified external membrane. The main reason for this change to the specification was to simplify and speed up the construction process, and reduce cost. Xypex Admix was used in the capping beam, basement walls and as a topping on the basement slab to ensure the double story basement remains totally dry. Not all walls are lined, so detailing needed to be created to manage and withhold the flow of water laterally where Xypex withheld the hydrostatic pressure.
