Worldwide, there is increasing focus on the importance of Sustainable Construction, through the adoption of materials, products and practices that result in the more efficient use of finite natural resources, that incorporates planning for re-use or re-cycling, as well as for the lessening of a burden of maintenance upon future generations.

Over many decades, Xypex Australia in conjunction with our Canadian 'parent' organisation Xypex Chemical Corporation, has engaged with some of the world's foremost, reputable and independent research organisations. With a primary focus on the many and complex issues of concrete durability, the concrete modifying effects of various Xypex treatments have been extensively investigated and reported upon.

Now included in many tens of thousands of concrete structures, Xypex has attained very high performance standards through its strict adherence to quality systems, through its commitment to continued industry-needs-based research and continuing product development. Worldwide, Xypex has attained a reputation for reliability and service, achieving an enviable position in the concrete industry because its products and service consistently exceed the project expectations of its customers.

The ability of a reinforced concrete structure to meet its functional and performance requirements over an extended period of time is largely dependent on the durability of its components, including the concrete, steel reinforcement, and anchorages.

The concept of being able to limit the permeability of a concrete, by way of installing a repetitively reactive 'self healing' capacity able to combat varying physical, chemical and environmental factors, can be significantly influence when planning for the ongoing serviceability of a concrete structure.

In grasping the concepts of sustainability by planning and designing for durability, it is within the consideration of the technical service life and functional service life where crystalline technology can be most influential, if supported by a comprehensive and 'quality' data set, to facilitate greater accuracy of extrapolation and improved 'predictability' of performance.
