Concrete is the universal product that among many other things, holds water in, and keeps water out. But when concrete fails and water gets through? Big potential problems. This is the story of Xypex around the world, the concrete fixing power of a great product — and how being there with the right stuff has made Xypex a concrete waterproofing leader.
More than forty years ago, demonstrating some brilliant ingenuity, a group of chemists at Xypex Chemical Corporation developed a technology that would change the way concrete is protected from intrusive liquids.
The fact that Xypex Crystalline Technology is now specified and used on thousands of diverse waterproofing projects around the globe is a testament to the original concept. Crystalline waterproofing technology was an idea that grew because Xypex chemists questioned what concrete was all about and found a way to make it better. Today, we continue the tradition.
Xypex products have been researched, formulated and packaged for ease of application in projects around the world. There are three primary application methods.
• Coating Installation (surface-applied by brush or spray) • Additive Installation (added to the concrete at the time of batching) • Dryshake Installation (Xypex powder is spread into fresh concrete prior to finishing)
