The World Standard in Concrete Waterproofing by Crystallization

MC Building, Inc. is again proudly promoting another quality building product: Xypex

About Xypex

First introduced over 50 years ago XYPEX Chemical Corporation launched “Concrete Waterproofing by Crystallization” XYPEX Corp. developed a unique technology that takes advantage of the natural and porous characteristics of concrete. With water as the catalyst, XYPEX proprietary chemicals react with the natural by-products of cement hydration (calcium hydroxide, mineral salts, mineral oxides, and un-hydrated and partially –hydrated cement particles), forming a non-soluble crystalline structure within the interconnected pores and other voids in concrete. In this discovered craft, the crystalline structure becomes a permanent integral part of the concrete matrix itself, preventing water intrusion and other liquids under intense hydrostatic pressure.

The XYPEX ADVANTAGE … Xypex Products are utilized to solve many water intrusion situations in new and existing buildings.


The best use of XYPEX is specifying XYPEX for new building foundations.  XYPEX Admixture is added to the concrete mix at the concrete batching plant which becomes thoroughly blended and brought to the job site ready mixed.

XYPEX performance is proven worldwide.

One of the most important aspects of a quality home is not experiencing any water intrusion through the concrete foundation entering your basement.  The XYPEX product performance offers peace of mind to the home buyer. Unfortunately basement foundations can crack and the cracks create opportunity for water intrusion, but not when XYPEX is added in the concrete mix.   

The Chicago Land area is built with concrete foundations including furnished finished basements achieving sound structural stability. And adding XYPEX in the concrete will create a dry basement to enjoy many family fun activities. And eliminating water intrusion also eliminates the possibility of mold growth in the basement.

There is No Equal.
