Meeting the Challenge

Protecting Industrial Structures
Industrial concrete structures are constantly exposed to hydrostatic pressure, sulphates, chlorides, and other aggressive chemicals. Without proper protection, the structural integrity of the concrete is soon compromised, leading to expensive remediation efforts and a shortened life span. Once the moisture and chlorides have reached the reinforcing steel, an expansive oxidation process begins to take place causing the formation of cracks and spalling in the concrete. When cracking takes place and is combined with weathering effects such as freeze/thaw damage or accelerated corrosion in hot weather climates, this deterioration takes place at a faster pace.

With over 40 years of experience in 70 countries around the world, Xypex Crystalline Technology has been used in a variety of industries to waterproof, protect, repair and enhance the durability of concrete. In this challenging environment, Xypex is a highly respected partner in extending the service life of industrial structures.
