Xypex Chemical Corporation is a manufacturer of crystalline waterproofing materials with an international network of distributors and licensees in over 70 countries.

Xypex has grown a successful reputation over the past 36 years by carefully integrating corporate marketing and research strategies around the needs of our customers.  Their commitment to quality is on-going; their products and technical support are readily available worldwide; and their product line meets the demands of value engineering; and their product R&D keeps pace with the advances in cement behavior research.

Xypex products have been specified and applied on thousands of major concrete structures around the world.

Xypex Additive products, added to the concrete at time of batching, are part of the Xypex concrete waterproofing and protection system and represent one of three different ways to install Xypex Crystalline Technology into concrete.


Their Xypex Admix is blended into the concrete mix at the time of batching to waterproof and protect concrete from the start. It outperforms other methods because of its unique ability to become a truly integral part of the concrete matrix. The Admix C-Series has been specially formulated to meet varying project and temperature conditions.

Xypex Admix C-500 meets concrete practices that incorporate additives such as fly ash and slag.

Xypex Admix C-1000 is designed for typical Portland cement-rich concrete.

Xypex Admix C-2000 is designed for projects where extended retardation is required. For ease of use, Xypex Admix is available in pails, bags or soluble bags.

Today, Xypex sets the standard of exacting excellence in its field, and continues to be specified and applied in more and more major concrete applications.

According to XYPEX UK representative Matthew Fidler  their products are found in most African countries including Egypt, Tunisia, Algeria, Mauritania, Sierra Leone, Ghana, Nigeria, Angola, Namibia, Botswana, South Africa, Zimbabwe, Mozambique, Zambia, Mauritius, Seychelles, Tanzania, Rwanda, Uganda, Kenya, Ethiopia, Djibouti, Eritrea and they are currently in such of distributors  in Francophone African countries.

Xypex have been involved in African infrastructure projects for many years. As investment and opportunities in Africa grow they have seen larger infrastructure projects take place throughout the continent. Their products are designed to be an integral part of a concrete structure and ultimately extend the service life of new and old concrete structures, whether it is for example a basement structure, bridge or water treatment plant. As the ready mix concrete industry grows throughout the continent they see their Xypex Admix products being an increasing choice by specifiers and engineers in new build construction projects.
