Xypex Waterproofs & Protects the National Museum of Singapore

 

The high profile of Singapore’s National Museum – a prestigious, historic and iconic landmark – demanded very close attention to all construction details when a recent new extension was being considered. As a result, Xypex Admix C-1000 NF - known for its superior performance, reliability, and longevity - was selected to waterproof and protect the concrete diaphragm walls and Xypex Concentrate was used to repair concrete defects.

Xypex Waterproofs & Protects the National Museum of Singapore

Xypex is a unique chemical treatment for the waterproofing, protection and improvement of concrete. XYPEX ADMIX C-1000 NF is added to the concrete mix at the time of batching. Xypex Admix C-1000 NF consists of Portland cement and various active, proprietary chemicals. These active chemicals react with the moisture in fresh concrete and with the by-products of cement hydration to cause a catalytic reaction. This reaction generates a non-soluble crystalline formation throughout the pores and capillary tracts of the concrete that permanently seals the concrete and prevents the penetration of water and other liquids from any direction
