The Xypex Advantage

Responding to diverse, worldwide need, Xypex has expanded its line from flagship coating to a fully integrated, highly functional family of products.

Xypex is Different

The crystalline nature of the Xypex waterproofing system provides many application advantages over traditional barrier products.

  • Xypex does not require a dry surface; in fact, a wet surface is necessary.
  • Xypex does not require dry weather to be applied.
  • Xypex does not require costly surface priming or leveling prior to application.
  • It cannot puncture, tear, or come apart at the seams.
  • It does not require protection during backfilling or during placement of steel, wire mesh or other materials.
  • It can be applied on either side of a concrete surface – the negative or the positive (water pressure) side.
  • Xypex does not require sealing, lapping and finishing of seams at corners, edges or between membranes.
  • It is less costly to apply than most other methods.

The Application Advantages

The Xypex crystalline system for concrete waterproofing is substantially different from traditional barrier products — like membranes and cementitious coatings. Check these differences:

  • Xypex creates a crystalline structure deep within the pores and capillary tracts of the concrete mass to prevent the penetration of water and aggressive chemicals. In contrast, barrier-type products function only at the surface of the concrete.
  • Because Xypex is not dependent on surface adhesion to achieve its waterproofing effect, it is resistant to extreme hydrostatic pressure.
  • It will seal static hairline cracks up to 0.4 mm.
  • It is not subject to the deterioration problems encountered by membranes.
  • Xypex is permanent and reactivates whenever water is present.


To meet the challenges of changing construction practices, divergent global environments and specific customer requirements, Xypex has continually developed and expanded its line of products. The Xypex Crystalline Technology remains at the core of this line that has evolved into an integrated system:
