Tech Talk - How Xypex’ Crystalline Technology can Extend the Service Life of Your Concrete Assets

When:  Jun 16, 2021 from 09:00 to 10:00 (ACST)
Associated with  South Australia


Diffusion and absorption of moisture and aggressive substances into concrete through the interconnected pores and cracks are the main processes of deterioration in reinforced concrete structures. Xypex crystalline formation modifies the microstructure of the concrete by blocking the pores and healing the cracks permanently.

This technology can be introduced to the existing concrete structures as a coating system or to the under-construction structure as an admixture. Furthermore, Xypex provides permanent and reliable solutions for concrete repair and rehabilitation.

This Tech Talk will show how Xypex, with over 30 years’ experience in Australia and more than 50 years globally, walks the walk in supporting ecological resilience through sustainability of longer lasting concrete assets, with less maintenance requirement using Australian manufactured and certified, Global Green Tag certified environmentally friendly products.

The session will work through projects Xypex has completed with various asset owners, highlighting the benefits and value the company has brought to their clients by extending the
service life of their concrete assets through the use of Crystalline technology. They will also touch on new technology that drives value to the waste water industry through Anti-Microbial Crystalline Technology.
