Super Plasticizer Combines MCI Corrosion Protection

CorrCreteTM 2007 combines Cortec® patented MCI® corrosion protection technology with a water-reducing compound. As a super water reducer that cuts water usage 20% to 30 %, the CorrCreteTMformulation significantly improves concrete properties for hardening and plasticity. It increases compressive strength 20% to 40% and increases flexural strength by 10% to 20%. The product is ideal to produce flowing concrete where rapid placing is required or in very congested zones. CorrCreteTM 2007 meets ASTM C-494 Type G high range water reducing admixture requirements.

MCI® CorrCreteTM 2007 can be used for all types of reinforced, precast, prestressed and post-tensioned concrete structures. When added to the concrete mix, its unique MCI® properties seek out and form a protective layer on metals embedded in the concrete. The MCI® layer protects reinforcing steel, carbon steel, galvanized steel and other metals from corrosion induced by carbonation, chloride and atmospheric attack.

Without containing any nitrite-based compounds, it provides protection to both anodic and cathodic areas. Because its MCI® protective capability is unaffected by chloride levels, CorrCreteTM2007 is especially effective for structures exposed to de-icing salts and salt water such as bridges, parking decks and ramps, utility poles, and marine structures such as piers, pilings, pillars and platforms.

In addition to new concrete structures, CorrCreteTM 2007 works well for applications in repair and restoration. When used with repair mortars and grouts, the MCI® migrates to undisturbed concrete, providing effective corrosion protection to adjacent rebar already in place.

CorrCreteTM is an easy to use liquid that mixes readily with concrete in the plant, during truck transport, or on-site. The product has been designed as new generation, environmentally friendly formulation that also promotes safety. Having a nearly neutral pH, it is water-based, non-flammable, organic and does not contain any nitrite-based compounds.
