Arbutus Attenuation Tank

Victoria, British Columbia, Canada

For the concrete structures of the attenuation tank, 2,500 cubic meters of concrete was treated with Xypex Bio-San, including the walls and roof slab. In addition to the crystalline waterproofing contained in Xypex admix C-500, Xypex Admix Bio-San also contains bio-active mineral solids that become permanently fixed within the concrete matrix, impairing bio-film formation, thus inhibiting the growth of acid-causing sewer bacteria such as Thiobacillus. The antimicrobial initiates a two-stage kill mechanism that stops the Thiobacillus bacteria from developing, thereby preventing the formation of sulfuric acid.

Quingdao Olympic Sailing Center

Qingdao, Shandong Province, China

Qingdao Olympic Sailing Center located on Macau Road, Shinan District, was the sailing-competition venue for the Beijing 2008 Olympic Games. Initially, Xypex Concentrate was used to waterproof just the fire pool in the media center but its successful application resulted in Xypex being subsequently used to waterproof 20 pools, 2 elevator shafts, and 2 platforms. Xypex Concentrate was also used to waterproof the Four Seasons Hall in Qingdao Olympic Village.
