Extend the Service Life of Concrete Structures to a Maximum With Powerful MCI 2020 Organic Corrosion Inhibitor.
MCI 2020 is organic, surface applied, migrating corrosion inhibitor designed to penetrate through cementitious materials including concrete, mortar, and limestone. It migrates in both liquid and vapor (gas) phases through the pore structure, forming a protective, molecular layer on embedded reinforcement and allowing vapor diffusion. MCI 2020 provides strong corrosion protection against carbonation, chlorides, and other contaminants and will migrate independent of orientation (horizontal, vertical or overhead up to 8 cm (3 inches) in 30 days.
Water based, non-flammable MCI 2020 offers engineers, owners, contractors, DOTs, and other government agencies a time proven, corrosion inhibiting technology that will significantly extend the service life of their reinforced concrete structures. MCI 2020 can be applied to new concrete or used for rehabilitation and will not delay construction or increase costs. Unlike standard inorganic inhibitors it does not have to come in contact with the reinforcing steel upon application. MCI 2020 is considered ambiodic (mixed) which means it protects both anodic and cathodic areas within a corrosion cell. It contains a synergistic blend of amino-alcohols and salts of carboxylic acids which form a protective layer on embedded reinforcement delaying the onset of corrosion as well as reducing existing corrosion rates.
MCI 2020 is recommended for: preventative maintenance of existing reinforced, precast, prestressed, post-tensioned, or marine concrete structures , bridges, highways, and industrial floors exposed to aggressive environments (chemicals, deicing salts, carbonation, atmospheric attack), parking garages, concrete piers, dams, offshore platforms, piles, pillars, pipes, utility poles, cooling towers and concrete potable water structures. It is also an important component of Cortec ’s High Performance Repair System (HPRS ).
MCI 2020 is easily applied by spray, brush, or roller and does not etch, stain, discolor, or otherwise harm glass, metals, or automotive paint. It does not contain calcium nitrite or wax and no removal of sound concrete is required. It’s excellent performance is proven in both lab and field testing.
