Megamix Series

MEGAMIX I

Description

Xypex Megamix I is a thin parge coat for the waterproofing and resurfacing of vertical masonry or concrete surfaces, as a cap coat for Xypex Concentrate, or as an architectural rendering. Megamix I is a unique blend of Portland cement, treated silica sand, fibers and proprietary chemicals. It is mixed with Xycrylic Admix to produce enhanced bond. Megamix I is applied by brush or trowel up to a thickness of 3/8 in. (10 mm). The high performance characteristic of Megamix I are enhanced by Xypex’s unique crystalline waterproofing and protection technology.

Note: For patching or resurfacing deteriorated concrete, requiring a thicker parge coat, (between 3/8 in. and 2 in. or 10 mm to 50 mm), see the information below for Xypex Megamix II.

Recommended for:

  • Waterproof coating for vertical concrete block surfaces and cast-in-place concrete walls
  • A secondary or cap coat for Xypex Concentrate applications to porous masonry surfaces
  • Lining for swimming pools, tunnels and tanks

Advantages

  • Excellent adhesion and bond to concrete substrates
  • Easy to apply
  • Fiber reinforced
  • Reduces surface absorption
  • Provides good surface for painting or as a final finished surface

Megamix I is available in 60 lb. (27.2 kg) pails.

Storage

Xypex products must be stored dry at a minimum temperature of 45°F (7°C). Shelf life is one year.

Coverage

Required coating thickness will vary depending on project requirements. At the recommended thickness of 1/8 in. (3.2 mm), one 60 lb. (27.2 kg) pail of Megamix I will cover 47.5 sq. ft. (4.4 m2). Megamix I may be applied as thin as 1/16 in. (1.6 mm) provided it is used as a cap coat over a coat of Xypex Concentrate. For application thickness exceeding 3/8 in. (10 mm), consult with the IMX Technologies.
