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
  • Akasztó Fish Hatchery

    Akasztó, Hungary

    While Xypex Concentrate was applied on previous similar projects, the Xypex Admix was selected for this one to prevent water ingress and egress and to save time and employment costs. Dosage rate of 1% by weight of cement.
  • 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.
  • Anderson Point Port Facility

    Port Hedland, Australia

    This project will mine and export through the Anderson Point Port Facility, 45 million tonnes per annum (mtpa) of Iron ore to markets in Asia. Xypex Admix C-Series is spec’d into all concrete elements of the berthing facility, to provide enduring protection for this vital asset. As of June 2011, Berths 1 & 2 are complete, with Berth 3 underway.
  • Animal Shelter

    Praque, Czech Republic

    Approximately 48 hours after the concrete was poured, Xypex Concentrate was applied to the concrete ramps, washing area floors and stall floors. This application serves to protect the concrete from chemicals used in cleaning and animal waste.
  • 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. The joints and defects were 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.
  • Beechworth Honey Factory

    Corowa, NSW, Australia

    Xypex Admix C-series was specified in the base slab of the Beechworth honey farms manufacturing warehouse. To increase the surface protection from this aggressive environment Xypex applied a half dose of Xypex Concentrate DS-1 to the surface for addition protection for long term durability against abrasion. In addition, some areas suffered from the effect of the concrete supplier overdosing the retarder. These areas were repaired with Xypex Megamix.
  • 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. 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.
  • Better Place Station

    Holon, Israel

    These stations are to provide “switchable batteries” for designated electric taxis in Israel. Fifty-three stations proposed to be built – Xypex is currently proposed to be used in half of these stations. Ackerstein Industries Ltd (a pre-cast company) is using Xypex Admix C-500 within the pre-cast elements to provide waterproofing in the below-grade level and protect the concrete from aggressive battery acid leakage.
  • 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.
