Xypex Coating Products

Xypex Coating products, for surface application, are part of the Xypex concrete waterproofing and protection system and represent one of three different ways to install Xypex Crystalline Technology into concrete.

Xypex Concentrate
Xypex Concentrate is applied as a cementitious slurry to the surface of existing above-or-below-grade structures to waterproof and protect the concrete against high hydrostatic pressure.

Xypex Concentrate is the most chemically active product within the Xypex Crystalline Waterproofing System. When mixed with water, this light grey powder is applied as a cementitious slurry coat to above-grade or below-grade concrete, either as a single coat or as the first of a two-coat application. It is also mixed in Dry-Pac form for sealing strips at construction joints, or for the repairing of cracks, faulty construction joints and honeycombs. Xypex prevents the penetration of water and other liquids from any direction by causing a catalytic reaction that produces a non-soluble crystalline formation within the pores and capillary tracts of concrete and cement-based materials.

Recommended for:

  • Reservoirs
  • Sewage and Water Treatment Plants
  • Secondary Containment Structures
  • Tunnels and Subway Systems
  • Underground Vaults
  • Foundations
  • Parking Structures
  • Swimming Pools
Advantages
  • Resists extreme hydrostatic pressure
  • Becomes an integral part of the substrate
  • Can seal hairline cracks up to 0.4 mm
  • Allows concrete to breathe
  • Highly resistant to aggressive chemicals
  • Non-toxic
  • Does not require a dry surface
  • Cannot puncture, tear or come apart at the seams
  • No costly surface priming or leveling prior to applicationDoes not require sealing, lapping and finishing of seams at corners, edges or between membranes
  • Can be applied to the positive or the negative side of the concrete surface
  • Does not require protection during backfilling or during placement of steel, wire mesh or other materials
  • Less costly to apply than most other methods
  • Not subject to deterioration
  • Permanent

Xypex Modified
Xypex Modified can be applied as a second coat to chemically reinforce Concentrate, or as a single coat for the damp-proofing of exterior foundation walls.

Xypex Modified can be applied as a second coat to reinforce Xypex Concentrate, or applied by itself to dampproof the exterior of foundation walls. Applied as a second coat, Xypex Modified chemically reinforces Xypex Concentrate where two coats are required and produces a harder finish. Where dampproofing is required, a single coat of Modified may be used as an alternative to a spray/tar emulsion. Xypex prevents the penetration of water and other liquids from any direction by causing a catalytic reaction that produces a non-soluble crystalline formation within the pores and capillary tracts of concrete and cement-based materials.
