Industrial Structure Projects

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.

Project Listing
  • Albanisa Fuel Storage Plant

    Managua, Nicaragua

    Xypex Admix C-500 was used to waterproof and protect three concrete cisterns at the Albanisa fuel storage plant.


  • Atochem Sodium Chlorate Tank

    Isère, France

    This concrete tank at the Isere Atochem plant was deteriorating due to the aggressive action of NaClO3. Xypex was used to eliminate leakage and to protect the concrete structure from further damage. After sandblasting the inside of the tank, joints and cracks were chipped open. The tank was then filled with clean water several times over a period of one month to eliminate any NaClO3 from the concrete substrate. The joints and defects were then repaired with Xypex products and two brushcoats of Xypex Concentrate were applied to both the inside and outside of the tank.


  • Aurangabad Asbestos Cement Products

    Mumbai, India

    Subsoil water was leaking into underground pits containing chemicals. Xypex Concentrate, followed by Xypex Modified, was applied from the negative side, thereby completely stopping the leakage.


  • Benzina A.S. – Gas Station

    Olsanska UL, Prague, Czech Republic

    Xypex Concentrate and Modified were used to protect the slab and apron of the gas station from the penetration of hydrocarbons into the environment. Xypex Patch'n Plug was also used to seal the joints. Other gas stations are also being treated with Xypex products as part of an ongoing program.
  • Bluescope Steel Factory

    Phu My, Vietnam

    Xypex products were chosen to waterproof the basement pits and water tanks due to its capability to be applied during rainy conditions and can be backfilled after 36 hours of moist curing.
  • Brewery Methane Tank

    Hoc Mon, Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam

    65 m of cracks on a seven meter high methane tank full of water was repaired by the use of Xypex. High pressure leaks were plugged with Patch'n Plug, followed by an application of Dry-Pac. Dampness persisted for three days and totally dried after the fourth day.
  • Calafate S.A. Cereal Storage Silos

    El Calafate, Argentina

    Xypex was used to stop ground water infiltration to the concrete base of these storage silos.
  • Canadian Crude Separators

    Edson, Alberta, Canada

    Xypex Admix C-1000 was used to waterproof and protect the tank slabs and walls of this containment structure for the reclamation of soils. A total of 26,000 lb of Xypex Admix was utilized for 1,000 m3 of concrete.
  • Chemical Plant

    Odessa, Ukraine

    Xypex products were used to prevent leakages and to protect the concrete structure.
  • Coca Cola Bottling Plant

    Kathmandu, Nepal

    Xypex Concentrate and Modified were applied, from the positive side, to the inside of nine reservoir tanks and treatment chambers housed inside an existing warehouse building. Patching and repair of segregated and defective concrete areas, honeycombs, rock pockets, etc. were carried out using Xypex Patch'n Plug and Concentrate Dry-Pac.
