Crystalline Technology for Enhancing Performance of Precast Concrete in Marine and Sewer Structures

Xypex Chemical Corporation, Richmond BC, Canada


Concrete, the most widely used material in modern building construction, is by its very nature and structure susceptible to damage from water penetration and water-borne chemicals such as chlorides and sulfates. Whether used to construct water and wastewater treatment plants and tunnels or manholes and pipes all of these concrete structures are subject to deterioration caused by the penetration of water and exposure to aggressive environments. Even with water reducing and super-plasticizing additives to reduce the amount of water in the concrete mix, concrete will still have pores, voids, and capillary paths that can carry water and the aggressive chemicals that will corrode steel reinforcement and deteriorate the concrete thus jeopardizing the structure’s integrity.
