Chem-Crete Pavix, is a patented dual crystalline penetrating concrete and masonry sealer that is 100% waterbased compound (H2o) containing only natural ingredients.


Concrete water and moisture protection used for treatment and protection against water and moisture associated problems for all concrete and cementitious structures

Chem-Crete Pavix, is a patented dual crystalline penetrating concrete and masonry sealer that is 100% waterbased compound (H2o)  containing only natural ingredients. Designed to protect these surfaces from the delaminating effects of water, moisture saturation, freeze/thaw, Alkali Silica Reaction (ASR), and chloride penetration.The protective properties are a distinctive surface repellent and moisture blocker, offering hygroscopic and hydrophilic capacities. Pavix is ideal for exterior or interior concrete and masonry surfaces and can be applied in both positive or negative side applications. Pavix will dramatically reduce maintenance costs and positively affect the life cycle of concrete and masonry products.


  • Can be used on green and cured concrete.
  • 100% green, environmentally safe, and non-toxic.
  • Eliminates damage caused by repeated freezing and thawing cycles.
  • Prevents concrete scaling.
  • Seals and protects cracks up to 1/16th inch (1.5 mm).
  • Reduces alkali-silica reactions and can reduce silicate dusting.
  • Can help reduce calcium oxychloride reaction due to use of magnesium chlorides.
  • Reduces and/or eliminates early joint deterioration.
  • Prevents penetration of chloride ions from de-icing salts.
  • Excellent repelling properties that help prevent water, jet fuel, and oil from saturating into the surface.
  • Helps concrete stay whiter and brighter.
  • Protects reinforcing steel bars against corrosion without any negative effects on existing steel cathodic protection.
  • Maximizes joint sealant adhesion by reducing moisture.
  • Can be applied vertically, horizontally, and overhead.
  • Provides long-lasting internal waterproofing and moisture blocking from positive and negative sides.
  • Eliminates fungal growth.

Fully cured or existing concrete: Repair and seal joints, cracks, and voids greater than 1/16th inch prior to application. Concrete surfaces must be clean and sound prior to application of the product. Proper cleaning will open the surface pores and capillaries to enhance the penetration process. Compressed air can be used to remove dust and loose particles from the surface. Flushing the area to be treated with water can improve the cleaning process. However, for heavily contaminated areas special concrete cleaning agents such as Chem-Crete CONCLEAN CCC060 can be used to remove dirt, grease, and oil from those areas.

Green/plastic application:

  • A test should always be performed for product absorption.
  • Only consider an application when concrete finishing is completed.
  • Concrete should not be in duress and should be curing normally.
  • Apply when all bleed water has dissipated from the
  • Apply Pavix uniformly and at the manufacturer’s recommended rate.
  • DO NOT allow the Pavix to puddle or pool. Should Pavix puddle or pool, remove this condition immediately by the best way possible. Additional movement of product with a broom, vacuum, or air blower is recommended.
  • Application of membrane forming curing compound should then immediately commence and not longer than 20 minutes from the initial Pavix application.
  • Apply the membrane curing compound at manufacturer’s recommended coverage rate.

Coverage: Apply at an average coverage rate of 150-200 ft2/gal (3.7-4.9 m2/liter) in one coat. Do not attempt additional coatings.

Limitations: Do not apply PAVIX in the following cases:

  • If concrete surface temperature falls below 40°F (5°C).
  • If the area has been previously treated with sealing agents unless the sealers are removed by chemical or mechanical


PAVIX   must   be   stored   under   room   temperature. Cold temperatures may cause the product to crystallize. Shelf life is two years in its original unopened packaging. Do not allow product to freeze.


As with all construction chemical products, adequate precautions and care must be taken during usage and storage. Avoid direct contact with foodstuff, eyes, skin, and mouth. Any direct contact with skin should be washed thoroughly with clean running water and soap.

Always wear protective goggles and gloves. In case of eye contact, flush for 15 minutes with warm water. If eye irritation persists, seek medical attention. In case of ingestion or swallowing, drink 2 glasses of clean water and seek medical attention. Keep out of reach of children.
