Xypex Australia were involved in the construction of the Caboolture Art Gallery and Library to waterproof areas at risk from leaks and spillage. Xypex have been going strong in Australia for 20 years now, their crystalline technology sealing concrete against water and chemical penetration and destruction.
On the Caboolture project, Xypex waterproofed three lift pits and approximately 15m² of exposed terrace floor. with Xypex Admix C-1000 NF . John Porst, Project Manager from ADCO Constructions says 'ADCO identified a potential risk on the terrace level which specified a trafficable membrane to the plant room floor which housed a chiller.'
The benefits of Xypex crystalline waterproofing and durability are many, including:
Unique ability to generate a non-soluble crystalline formation deep within the pores and capillary tracts of the concrete, whereby it cannot be punctured or damaged like a membrane or surface coating.;
David Mitchell, State Manager - Queensland for Xypex Australia, says that amongst their many projects nation-wide, there is 'particular focus on new structures that are below ground or in exposed and aggressive environments, as well as many concrete structures requiring remediation and seeking extension of service life. Our involvement extends from major infrastructure to residential construction.'
ADCO were extremely happy with the Xypex product, John Porst, Project Manager again: '...we decided to install Xypex at an additional cost to ADCO, which I believe far outweighed the risk of future water leaks through the traditional waterproof membrane.'
Xypex Australia continue to provide concrete solutions with an innovative and progressive approach in a highly competitive market.
