Engineer Specifies Xypex to Protect Beijing Olympics "Bird's Nest" Stadium

Beijing, China

March 19, 2008

In 2000, Xypex products played an important part in the waterproofing and protection of the concrete used in the construction of the Olympic Stadium in Sydney. Now, in Beijing, Xypex crystalline technology is again a winning architectural choice where it is being used on the already famous "Bird's Nest" Olympic Stadium.

The Japan Proton Accelerator Research Complex (J-PARC) is a new high intensity proton accelerator using MW class high power beams up to 50 GeV – the highest beam power of any accelerator in the world. Xypex Crystalline Technology, because of its waterproofing effectiveness, resistance to the marine environment, and its compatibility with the radioactive process, was specified by major firms involved in the construction coalition that built the accelerator.

Xypex concrete waterproofing products were included in the renovation specifications for the restoration of the Rosemont Reservoir - Montreal’s largest underground water reservoir. The reservoir holds 227,000 ft.3 or 59 million gallons of water and is the equivalent size of four football fields by four football fields. Over 150,000 lbs each of Xypex Concentrate and Modified were used to waterproof, protect and renovate the walls, ceiling and slab of this major project.

Medellin, Colombia

October 05, 2016
The Porce 3 Dam near Medellin is classified as a concrete-face, rock-fill type embankment dam. A concrete footing (plinth) is required and constructed around the upstream edge, serving to connect the dam with the valley walls and floors. Its role is also to prevent water leakage around the edges of the dam. Xypex Concentrate was selected to ensure the proper waterproofing of the plinth as well as 8,000 m2 of dam slabs.

Xypex – The Preferred Choice for Studio City Macau’s Foundations

Xypex Protected Building Wins Three Architectural Awards

Having recently been named “Building of the Year 2016” by the Czech Building Academy , Pavlov Archeological Park has been awarded even further recognition. The German Design Council named the museum the “Best of Best” in their Iconic Awards 2017; and at the Cemex Building Awards the project was designated “best collective space”.

The museum is located at the important archeological site of Pavlov in the Pálava hills near Brno in the Czech Republic, an area of outstanding natural beauty which has been declared a protected landscape area by the government. 

The design for the museum had to take into account the local landscapes and so the architects Radko Květ Studio decided to build a largely underground concrete structure with a few protruding turrets with the appearance of “limestone rocks standing out from green meadows and vineyards”. 

Due to ground and rain water a monolithic watertight concrete was required of the contractor OHL ŽS . Following its long history of waterproofing and protecting concrete in underground construction, Xypex Admix was chosen as the sole waterproofing system for the structure. 

Inside, the museum combines modern audiovisual technology with traditional museum displays of Paleolithic relics from the site.

 

Mixcoac-Insurgentes - Underpass Interchange

Mixcoac-Insurgentes - Underpass Interchange

Mexico City, Mexico

 
The Mixcoac-Insurgentes underpass interchange was an extraordinary engineering challenge because of the architectural complexity and operative logistics of the project. The structural composition of the double tunnel, one directly above of the other, made this a very complex interchange. As the only double tunnel in Mexico City it spans over 1.3 kilometers and is a great way for the city to recover public space. 

The largest project challenge was the three existing sewer collectors along the interchange tunnels. This caused more complexity to the design and execution of the project. In the long run the collectors brought important benefit to the hydraulic infrastructure by the substitution of concrete underground galleries that protect the pipes, as well as some wastewater ducts which would stay adjacent to the tunnels. In order to achieve a waterproof structure, Xypex Crystalline Technology was chosen because of its ability to protect against any dampness or leaks and its resistance to chemical attack. The use of Xypex products allowed for a quick and easy waterproofing application. 

During the tunnel construction a segment of the wastewater pipes had to be replaced because of its location directly below an out-going lower tunnel. 200 kg of Xypex Concentrate was applied to the inner side of the wastewater channel and Xypex Admix C-2000 (dosed at 2%) was poured as a cover slab of this channel as well as the deck of the upper tunnel. 

Quoting Architect Vladimir Sanchez, general supervisor of the project “the use of Xypex technology by crystallization has been convenient and practical, even to solve unpredictable situations as flooding by rain in some areas of the project”… the superior performance of Xypex satisfied not only for the project’s engineers, but also the Mexico City Public Works Department.
