Xypex Resists Aggressive Chemicals
By preventing the penetration of aggressive chemicals, Xypex helps control the problems of sulphate attack, leaching, alkali-aggregate reaction, carbonation, and corrosion.Because Xypex is pH specific (not chemical specific) it will protect concrete from any chemical whose pH range is 3.0 to 11.0 constant contact, or 2.0 to 12.0 periodic contact.
Xypex Resists Extreme Hydrostatic Pressure
Xypex resists extreme hydrostatic pressure from either the positive or negative surface of the concrete slab. Because Xypex is not dependent upon adhesion to the concrete surface and instead becomes an integral part of the concrete mass, it is capable of resisting extreme hydrostatic pressure from either side (positive or negative) of the concrete.
Xypex Protects Against Freeze/Thaw Damage
By blocking the intrusion of water into concrete, Xypex helps protect the concrete from the damaging effect of repeated freeze/thaw cycles.
Xypex Provides Chloride Protection In Marine Environments
Xypex crystalline technology prevents ingress of water, salt solutions and many aggressive chemicals in both new and remedial applications. Xypex permits the concrete to 'breathe’ out existing moisture vapour whilst excluding the entry of further solutions.
Xypex Protects Reinforcing Steel
By preventing the intrusion of water, salt water, sewage, and most chemicals, Xypex helps protect reinforcing steel against oxidation and deterioration.
