What is Xypex Cystalline Technology?
Basic to the development of Xypex Crystalline Technology was a thorough understanding of concrete’s chemical and physical makeup. Concrete is porous. Its tunnel-like capillaries are a natural part of its mass, and permit the passage of water and other liquids. Researchers at Xypex recognized the opportunity for a chemical treatment that would fill these capillaries to prevent the penetration of water and other liquids from any direction. By means of diffusion, the reactive chemicals in Xypex products use water as a migrating medium to enter and travel down the capillaries of the concrete. This process precipitates a chemical reaction between Xypex, moisture and the by-products of cement hydration, forming a new non-soluble crystalline structure. This integral structure fills the capillary tracts rendering the concrete waterproof.
Unlike traditional methods of diverting the water or “curtain grouting” with numerous materials such as clay or foam, RC Waterproofing uses Xypex to physically make the concrete itself waterproof.
Able to withstand up to a 400ft of pressure and the ability to self-seal cracks, Xypex is the number one choice for negative side waterproofing such as elevator pits. Using other proprietary methods alongside Xypex, RC Waterproofing is able to create a custom elevator waterproofing repair.
