How Xypex® Works
Xypex Crystalline Technology waterproofs and enhances the chemical protection of concrete though
its unique reactive process. The active chemical components in Xypex react with the by-products of
cement hydration, resulting in a non-soluble crystalline structure that fills and plugs the pores and
capillary tracts of the concrete structure.
Culvert and other drainage pipe failures incur great costs. These failures typically must be fixed or
replaced at emergency rates. New rehabilitation technologies present contractors and infrastructure
managers with multiple superior options. Experienced, certified applicators, such as GWC,
can centrifugally cast high-strength mortars to create a new, structurally sound concrete pipe inside
the old one.
Why Basements Leak
The battle against moisture is the most common basement problem faced by homeowners. It can range
from seepage through the pores of walls and floors to water gushing through cracks, construction
joints or structural defects. In spite of this, most basements have been built with little or no
attention to preventing moisture problems.
