Xypex Carton Containing 5 - 10 Lb. Soluable Bags of Admix C-500

Xypex is a unique chemical treatment for the waterproofing, protection and improvement of concrete. XYPEX ADMIX C-500 is added to the concrete mix at the time of batching. Xypex Admix C-500 consists of Portland cement, very fine treated silica sand and various active, proprietary chemicals. These active chemicals react with the moisture in fresh concrete and with the by-products of cement hydration to cause a catalytic reaction which generates a non-soluble crystalline formation throughout the pores and capillary tracts of the concrete. Thus the concrete becomes permanently sealed against the penetration of water or liquids from any direction. The concrete is also protected from deterioration due to harsh environmental conditions.

Xypex Admix C-Series
The Admix C-Series has been specially formulated to meet varying project and temperature conditions. Xypex Admix C-500 is specifically formulated to meet modern concrete practices that incorporate additives such as fly ash and slag. For most concrete mix designs adding the Admix C-500 will have minimal or no effect on setting time. Xypex Admix C-1000 is designed for typical Portland cement-rich concrete, where normal to a mild retarded set is desired. Xypex Admix C-2000 is designed for projects where extended retardation is required dueto high ambient temperatures or long ready-mix delivery times. See Setting Time and Strength for more details. Consult with a Xypex technical services representative for the most appropriate Xypex Admix for your project.
