      xypex alternative

      on the east coast I have had trouble finding xypex yet have heard about master life 300D admixture, masterseal 581 (no crystalline expansion), masterseal 500 (has expanding crystals) these products are from a company called masterbuilders solutions by BASF and they seem to think its the same thing as xypex. Has anyone ever heard of them or used them? I was going to use the admix (mixed right into the pumping truck) to fill the cinderblocks and for pouring the floor, then coat everything with the masterseal 500

      The technology is old, the original patent has expired and several companies make simular products. There are probably manufacture published performance tests that you can compare.

      You can call a Xypex rep and order it.
      people like to vehemently defend their purchases and find it incredulous that anything could be better

      BASF is a good company that makes quality products in my opinion. Other options are Krystol KIM, Penetron Admix, Betocrete, Hycrete W... etc. etc. Look them up, or talk to a local supply house and see what they are recommending for your area. You can also call concrete pumping companies and ask what admix they recommend right now.
