Poorly protected concrete walls and foundations are vulnerable to cracking as steel rebars corrode and expand in the presence of water. Water seepage can leave defects in freshly painted walls as well. These, if left unattended, can seriously harm a building.


With 70% of homeowners and contractors identifying water protection as an important project factor, Holcim Philippines, Inc. rose to the challenge with the development of Holcim Aqua X, the first ever water repellent cement. Holcim Aqua x is made to guard against water damage and deterioration in constructions like homes to help protect structures from excessive moisture.

Prevent water damage in structures with Holcim Aqua X’s Active Water Repellent Boosters! Compared to current procedures, such as applying a repellent to walls or including a water-proofing component in the concrete mix, these make it easier to construct water-resistant structures.
