Concrete Sealer Stops Rust While Repelling Water

A new topical surface treatment based on Cortec® patented MCI® technology seals out water while stopping rust. Cortec® MCI® 2022 is effective for new construction, maintenance repair, and restoration of concrete, brick and masonry. The easy-to-apply liquid comes ready-to-use. No dosages or mixing are required. The operator can spray, roll or squeegee the material onto horizontal and vertical surfaces with conventional application methods.

Part of Cortec�s new generation of eco-friendly formulations, MCI® 2022 is environmentally sound. Using water-based chemistry, it offers users a non-toxic, non-flammable and fully biodegradable product without the use of nitrites, phosphates, or solvents. Further, operators do not need special safety suits. After application, no special disposal precautions are required.

MCI® 2022 employs the latest chemical technology for increasing the life of concrete structures. After application, it provides a water-repelling seal so effective that it blocks carbonation and chloride ion intrusion while still allowing the treated surface to breath and have natural moisture-vapor transmission. Its patented MCI® chemistry penetrates deep into the concrete for anodic and cathodic protection of all types metal reinforced structures. Even for the densest concrete, the MCI® will penetrate to protect a variety of metals including carbon steels, galvanized steel and aluminum.

The sealer can be used for all types of reinforced, precast, prestressed, and post-tensioned concrete structures. It is highly resistant to alkaline, salt, and chloride attack from saltwater and de-icing chemicals. This capability makes it especially applicable for marine structures, bridges, parking decks, ramps and garages. Its dual anodic and cathodic protection also inhibits aggressive attack from metropolitan and industrial SO2 atmospheres, acids or other harsh chemicals making it ideal for outdoor surfaces such as concrete piers, pillars, pipe, or utility poles and indoor surfaces such as plant floors.
