Cortec Offers MCI® Corrosion Inhibitors to Protect Concrete Structures from Damage

Published on 2012-11-09. Author : SpecialChem

Cortec's Migrating Corrosion Inhibitors MCI® corrosion inhibitors are growing to become the industry standard for achieving concrete structures with prolonged service life.

Extreme salinity, temperature and humidity are prevalent in many environments including the Middle East. This poses a challenge for engineers designing structures with increasing service life.

MCI® corrosion inhibitors are becoming the global technology of choice to achieve this goal. MCI® corrosion inhibitors have demonstrated effectiveness in lab testing as well as field monitoring. MCI® admixtures are dosed at low levels to provide corrosion protection with negligible effect on concrete properties. Having an affinity to steel, MCI® molecules migrate towards steel reinforcement forming a monomolecular layer that passivates the surface. A key advantage of the technology is its effectiveness even in cracked concrete.

MCI® product range for repair applications includes surface-applied, injectable and powder products that are effective at extending the service-life of old structures.

MCI® corrosion inhibitors are based on amine carboxylate chemistry that is USDA-certified to be biobased. It is a sustainable technology derived from renewable natural resources.

MCI® products have been used on many of the world's most prestigious structures including Burj Khalifa.

To support its growth in the Middle Eastern region, Cortec established its regional office in the United Arab Emirates earlier this year with support offices in Saudi Arabia and Jordan. Specialists are available to support and guide engineers in the corrosion protection of their assets and structures.
