NEW PRODUCT RELEASE
Concrete Sealer Stops Rust While Repelling
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
Part of Cortecís 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.
