Xypex Concrete Admixtures

Xypex Concrete Admixtures are powdered form products, consisting of Portland cement and active proprietary chemicals, which are added to the concrete mix at the time of batching.

Research studies have confirmed that the Xypex Admix C-Series modifies the microstructure of the concrete and enhance the durability performance of the concrete by blocking the pores and healing the cracks up to 0.4 mm. Case studies have revealed that Xypex Admix C-Series is able to significantly extend the service life of the reinforced concrete structures exposed to aggressive environments.

Moreover, Xypex products improve the mechanical properties of the concrete as well.

Xypex Admix C-5000

Xypex Admix C-5000 is a unique powdered form admixture that has been specially formulated to enhance the durability of the reinforced concrete exposed to aggressive conditions. Xypex Admix
C-5000 is added to the concrete mix at the time of batching.

Xypex Admix C-1000 NF

Xypex Admix C-1000 NF is a unique powdered form admixture that has been formulated to make the concrete completely watertight and waterproof. It outperforms other methods because of its unique ability to become a truly integral part of the concrete matrix.

Xypex Bio-San C500

Xypex Bio-San C500 is a unique way of protecting concrete in harsh sewage conditions with high levels of hydrogen sulphide that cause microbial induced corrosion. No other admixture combines potent antimicrobial properties with Xypex crystalline waterproofing technology to offer protection.

Questions

Q1: Are all crystalline additives the same?
All "crystalline additives" available in the market might appear similar to each other in the bag, however there is significant variation in terms of chemical composition under XRF (X-ray Fluorescence Analysis) and most importantly performance compliance to Australian Standard AS1478.1 - 2000, Chemical Admixtures for Concrete, for Special Purpose Normal-Setting (Type SN) Admixture.
