Xypex Admix C-5000 was dosed into 197 precast culverts (used as a Cyclone Corridor), for waterproofing and protection from soluble chlorides and acid sulphates for the Gorgon Civils and Underground Services Work package.

To meet the additional challenge of transporting pre-cast sections long distances without impacting on concrete durability, Xypex Admix C-5000 was selected for concrete protection. The potential for minor hairline cracks forming during transportation was a concern to the project managers. Xypex Crystalline Technology has the ability to self heal cracks up to 0.4mm when moisture enters the concrete, therefore satisfying the durability performance criteria for this project.

Xypex Australia are proud to partner with PERMAcast and BGC Concrete to provide solutions to sustainable construction.
