The Permanent Solution


Xypex Crystalline Technology

Xypex products use the natural porosity of concrete and chemical diffusion to penetrate its pores and capillaries. Inside the concrete, Xypex chemicals react with the by-products of cement hydration to form a non-soluble crystalline structure deep within the substrate. In this condition, the concrete becomes impermeable, preventing the penetration of liquids and chemicals from any direction even under extreme hydrostatic pressure. The chemical resistant properties of the crystalline structure help to reduce the effects of microbial induced corrosion.

The Xypex Advantage

Xypex Crystalline Technology works inside the concrete, thereby avoiding the problems typical of traditional barrier products.

  • Resists microbial induced corrosion and chemical attack
  • Not subjected to the deterioration problems encountered by membranes
  • Not dependent of surface adhesion to achieve its waterproofing effect
  • Xypex is permanent and reactivates whenever water is present
  • Can be applied on negative or positive side of concrete surface
  • Self-heals static cracks up to 0.4 mm (1/64“)


Proven Performance Worldwide

Comprehensive quality systems and standards along with thorough testing in the lab and the field have resulted in Xypex’s highly respected position in the concrete industry. Xypex has been extensively tested by independent testing laboratories in the U.S., Canada, Australia, Japan, Europe and other countries.
