Xypex Concentrate is the most chemically active of the Xypex waterproofing products. When mixed with water, this light grey powder is applied as a 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 Modified can be applied as a second coat to reinforce Xypex Concentrate or by itself to damp-proof the exterior of foundation walls. Applied as a second coat over Concentrate, Modified produces a harder finish and speeds the curing of the Concentrate. Where damp-proofing is required, a single coat of Modified may be used as an alternative to a spray/tar emulsion.
Xypex Concentrate Admix C-Series:
With the Admix C-Series, Xypex’s unique crystalline dry powder compound for the waterproofing, protection and improvement of concrete is added to the concrete mix at time of batching. Admix C-1000 and C-2000 have each been formulated to meet specific project and temperature conditions. Both Xypex Admixes are available in a “no fines” grade.
Xypex Concentrate DS Series:
DS-1 and DS-2 are special dry shake formulations of Xypex Concentrate designed specifically for horizontal concrete surfaces such as parking decks and floor slabs. Applied by hand or by mechanical spreader, DS-1 and DS-2 are trowelled into fresh concrete prior to finishing. DS-2 is used for concrete structures where increased abrasion resistance is required.
Xypex Patch’n Plug Series:
Xypex Patch’n Plug is formulated as a crystalline, fast-setting, non-shrink, high-bond-strength, hydraulic cement compound for concrete repairs. It stops flowing water in seconds and is used to seal cracks, fill tie-holes and other defects in concrete.
Xypex FCM is specially designed for repairing cracks subject to movement, sealing construction joints, restoring deteriorated concrete and waterproofing concrete structures. FCM has exceptional adhesive and elongation characteristics and is often used in conjunction with the Xypex Crystalline Concrete Waterproofing and Protection System. FCM is a two component product consisting of a specialized liquid polymer dispersion and a cementitious powder component. These ingredients are mixed just prior to application.
Xypex Restora-Top products are designed specifically for the repair and rehabilitation of horizontal concrete surfaces such as warehouse floors, bridge decks, roads, curbs, and walkways where the repaired area must be returned to normal service within two hours of the completed repair. Restora-Top products consist of specially modified portland cement, aggregates, admixtures and bonding agents combined in controlled proportions to provide excellent adhesion properties, rapid setting and strength gain, as well as superior durability and reduced shrinkage.
Xypex Gamma Cure:
Xypex Gamma Cure is a curing agent designed specifically for Xypex crystalline waterproofing products. The use of Gamma Cure may eliminate the need for water curing the Xypex coating in some cases. Consult manufacturer for specific recommendation.
Xycrylic-Admix is a water-based polymer dispersion specifically designed for fortifying portland cement compositions. The liquid is milky-white in colour and has a high solids content. Xycrylic-Admix can be used with Xypex Patch’n Plug to increase bond strength.
