What Is Xypex®?
Xypex® is a non-toxic, chemical treatment for the waterproofing and protection of concrete.
Xypex®'s primary and most distinguishing performance feature is its unique ability to generate a non-soluble crystalline formation deep within the pores and capillary tracts of the concrete --
a crystalline structure that permanently seals the concrete against the penetration of water and other liquids from any direction.

How Does Xypex Work?
Xypex becomes an integral part of the concrete, which is both porous and chemical in nature. The reactive chemicals in Xypex use water as a migrating medium to enter and travel through the pores in the concrete. This process results in a chemical reaction between Xypex, moisture and the chemicals naturally present in cement. The result is a non-soluble crystalline structure that plugs the pores of the concrete. This will continue to migrate through the concrete and the crystalline growth will form behind this advancing front of chemicals. This process will reactivate whenever water is present, thus making the concrete totally sealed against the penetration of water from any direction.
How Long Does Xypex Last?
Xypex, being a through-and-through concrete enhancement, resists erosive processes by making the concrete stronger, more durable and dense. Xypex becomes a part of the concrete, not just a sealer that's stuck on the surface. The crystals continue to develop in the concrete over time, blocking new water paths that develop, even years after application. Over time, the Xypex-catalyzed crystal growth forms a waterproof matrix throughout the entire mass of the concrete. New cracks, should any form, will be sealed in an ongoing, dynamic process. A Xypex application, unlike most other systems, is permanent.

For over 25 years, Xypex concrete waterproofing products have been used by contractors around the world on the most demanding projects.

This proven technology is now available from us for waterproofing of:

  • basements
  • ponds
  • cisterns
  • foundation walls
  • retaining walls
  • elevator pits
  • and more...
How Is Xypex Different?
The process by which Xypex waterproofs concrete is unique, in that Xypex is a catalyst. This crystalline growth is highly resistant to extreme water pressure from either side of the concrete and also to most aggressive chemicals. Since the process is catalytic, the crystalline structure can reactivate many years after the original application, to seal or re-seal many defects which might occur in the concrete at a later time.
