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
  • PetroChina Qingyang Petrochemical Company Project

    Qingyang, Gansu Province, China

    PetroChina is a direct subsidiary of China National Petroleum Corporation. This 3-million-ton oil refinery relocation project of Sinopec Qingyang Petrochemical Company covers an area of more than 1,000 acres and is a key project in Qingyang City. Experts unanimously agreed to use Xypex to treat concrete in high pollution areas. More than 300 tons of Xypex products were used for waterproofing, protecting, and enhancing the durability of the sewage treatment systems.
  • Qinghai Salt Lake Chemical

    Golmud, Qinghai Province, China

    Salt Lake Industry Co. is one of the four pillar industries for revitalizing Qinghai’s economy. With the further extension of the national strategy for the development of the western region, the utilization of Salt Lake resources has become a “top priority” in the evolution of the Chaidamu economy. To prevent the carbonization of the building structure and the corrosion by chloride ions, the exposed concrete structure of the plant is waterproofed and protected with Xypex Concentrate.
  • PetroChina Hohhot Petrochemical Company Expansion Project

    Hohhot, Inner Mongolia, China

    The Hohhot Petrochemical Company’s expansion project increased refining capacity to 5 million tons per year. It was a key project in a strategy designed to structurally adjust China’s oil refining and chemical business, playing a significant role in Inner Mongolia’s ‘Eleventh Five-Year Plan’. Over 100 tons of Xypex Admix was used to waterproof and protect the storage, transportation and sewage treatment facilities of the plant.
  • North China Petrochemical 10 Million Ton Oil Refining Upgrade Project

    Renqiu, Hebei Province, China

    PetroChina is China’s largest oil and gas producer. In 2006, this 10-million-ton energy-saving recycling petrochemical base project was formally approved by the Ministry of Environmental Protection and, in 2009, by the Provincial Development and Reform Commission. The project has far-reaching significance, effectively promoting the economic development of Hebei Province and the entire Beijing-Tianjin-Hebei region. The project required the construction of 12 production equipment factories and related supporting facilities. Water and chemical leakage and concrete corrosion in the sewage treatment system were important issues to be considered during the construction process. After extensive research and product testing, Xypex Concentrate and Admix were selected to remedy the situation. More than 200 tons of Xypex products were used.
  • San Diego International Airport Northside Capture Reuse Cistern

    San Diego, California, USA

    The cistern construction consisted of installation of a secant pile wall forming the exterior of the cistern followed by excavation of the space within the piles. A Xypex Admix C-500 NF treated 32” thick slab, thickened to 38” at the outer 8’, was poured to create a waterproof floor of the cistern. An inner liner with a minimum 5” thickness was shotcrete placed against the inner face of the secant pile walls creating a flat surface. A 32” structural wall of Xypex Admix treated concrete was poured against the shotcrete liner to complete the wall assembly creating fully waterproofed walls for the cistern. Finally, a Xypex concrete treated lid with a thickness of 30” thinning to 24” at the outer edges was placed to finish the cistern.
  • WOQOD Petrol and Service Station


    The use of Xypex Admix as a standalone waterproofing product has proved to be a turning point in the design and construction of WOQOD petrol stations. With tight schedules, the use of Xypex Admix saves nearly 3 weeks of critical project time. Additionally, the cost of dewatering was significantly reduced since Xypex waterproofs concrete during the concrete hydration phase itself. Xypex-treated concrete has also demonstrated its ability to self-heal hairline static cracks even under high hydrostatic conditions. By replacing the conventional waterproofing system with Xypex, WOQOD is able to meet its exacting environmental and operational standards saving both time and expense in the process.
  • Minera Panama – Cobre Panama

    Donoso, Provincia de Colon, Panama

    Minera Panama, also known as Cobre Panama, is a 136 km² open-pit copper mine located 120 km west of Panama City, 20 km from the Caribbean Coast. Known resources are more than 3 billion tonnes of copper. Xypex Concentrate was used to waterproof and protect the conveyor tunnels for the mine and Xypex Admix provided chemical protection to various parts of the processing plant. 
  • 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.


  • Miller Pump Station

    Naples, Florida, USA

    All of the concrete in the structure contains either Xypex Admix C-500 or Admix C-1000. Xypex was used to give permanent waterproofing to the pump station because of conditions of extreme hydrostatic pressure. During construction of the matt slab concrete placement, five generator operative pumps were continuously pumping groundwater away from the site location, so construction could begin. This project is still in progress. 
  • Victoria Oil – Grain Elevators

    Sid, Serbia

    The foundation slab and walls of primary elevators in grain tank, situated 6 m below the ground were waterproofed by Xypex. Prior to the use of Xypex, there was severe leakage into tank. Xypex successfully stopped this leakage.
