Xypex products play a key role in the waterproofing of concrete against water leakage, even against extreme hydrostatic pressure. The unique Xypex technology also protects concrete against the effects of sulfate attack and crack or joint failure.

Project Listing
  • Barlockart Wind Farm

    Dumfries & Galloway, United Kingdom

    Xypex Admix was specified by the design engineers as the stand-alone waterproof solution for the plant rooms, and plant room service tunnel to completely seal the concrete to ingress of water and aggressive ground contaminants that could corrode the reinforcing steel.
  • Bogong Power Station

    Bogong, Australia

    Xypex Admix C-Series was specified for use in 12,000 m³ of concrete for this new power station development, designed to provide an additional 140 MW to the Kiewa hydroelectric scheme. The Xypex system was used to enhance long-term durability and provide added waterproofing integrity for this vital infrastructure development.
  • Caracol Knits Biomass Plant

    Honduras

    With a recent emphasis on biomass plants for power, Xypex has become a more commonly used solution for waterproofing and protection of cooling towers. For this plant, Xypex Admix C-1000 and Xypex Patch’n Plug were used to protect the structure and to repair the pin holes left from the formwork. A total of 13,000 kgs of Xypex products were used.
  • Ceske Velenice Gas Station

    Czech Republic

    Xypex Concentrate and Modified were spray-applied to this tank as additional insulation and to prevent chemical seepage into the surrounding ground.
  • Chaira Hydro Power Plant

    Chaira, Bulgaria

    The concrete located 350 m under the surface of this electric power plant had cracked and was leaking. Xypex Patch'n Plug and Concentrate were used on a gradual basis until all the leaks were stopped.
  • Cooling Tank

    Slovakia

    The cooling tank under the ventilator cooling towers was originally coated with an epoxy which did not weather well and had become non-functional after 6 years. The worn epoxy surface was removed and a slurry coat of Xypex Concentrate was applied. Damaged areas were repaired with cement dosed with Xypex Admix cement, the pool surface was treated with Xypex Modified, and the cracks and joints sealed with Xypex Dry-Pac.
  • Cottam Power Station

    Nottinghamshire, United Kingdom

    As part of the power upgrade, a 12m deep Coffer Dam was constructed in 2004. Cottam Power Station is located near Retford in Nottinghamshire and is adjacent to the River Trent, meaning that the upgrade works had to withstand a 6 metre hydrostatic head of pressure. The slab was designed and cast utilising Xypex Admix, which not only waterproofs but also enhances the durability of the concrete.
  • Data Security Site

    Colorado Springs, CO, USA

    With a new major cellular security site nestled against a wet hillside, keeping water away from this site was paramount. Xypex Concentrate, Modified and Patch'n Plug were chosen to treat 10,000 sq. ft. of concrete.
  • Enerjisa Power Generating Station

    Izmit, Turkey

    An earthquake had damaged areas of this power plant and Xypex was used to repair it. Xypex Concentrate, Modified and Patch'n Plug were used to waterproof the gallery curtain walls, the ceilings and the floor slabs.
  • EOn Plant, Water Deflector Works of Art

    Gönyű, Hungary

    The concrete defects of the water deflector slurry walls which was built into the loessy soil, was repaired with Xypex Patch’n Plug then treated with special Xypex Concentrate coating which serves like a bonding agent for the new 15 cm thick concrete layer.
