Xypex products play a key role in the prevention and treatment of problems common to the sanitary sewer collection system and the wastewater treatment plant.
Xypex products used: Bio-San C500
A new American Furniture and Mattress
warehouse was built in Webster, Texas, requiring
the installation of sanitary and storm
water manholes and a catch basin.
The design team was looking for corrosion
protection for the manholes and chose Xypex
Bio-San C500 over the alternate antimicrobial
admixture. Xypex Bio-San C500 was
chosen because it provides the precast sewage
elements with protection against microbial
induced corrosion and aggressive chemicals,
as well as waterproofing and crack
healing properties. The precast manufacturer
reported that there were no operational or
fabrication issues associated with including
Xypex Bio-San C500 in the wet cast mix.
The distinct colour of Bio-San C500 treated concrete facilitates the identification at the plant or on site as shown in the photos for this project.
