GalvaCorr® Patented
Description: GalvaCorr is a four component moisture curing, metal rich, urethane coating. GalvaCorr is a galvanic coating for concrete that uses sacrificial metals to provide cathodic protection to embedded steel rebar. GalvaCorr is electrically connected to the rebar and galvanically stops the corrosion. This eliminates the need for expensive external power sources for corrosion protection. GalvaCorr is formulated with additives that promote the galvanic action.
Application: GalvaCorr is excellent for underside application to structures such as:
• Bridges, buildings and foundations of all types
• Parking decks, ramps and garages
• Commercial and civil engineered structures
• Concrete piers, offshore platforms, piles, pillars, pipes and utility poles above water line

MCI® Architectural Coating
Description: MCI® Architectural Coating is a unique, water-based primer/topcoat designed to provide protection in harsh, outdoor applications. MCI® Architectural Coating provides three main benefits: - acts as a sealer, preventing penetration of water, chloride ingress, and carbonation of the concrete; - provides a source of corrosion inhibitors to protect embedded reinforcement and other metals; - shows excellent adhesion properties to concrete; - improves the appearance of buildings and structural elements when applied. MCI® Architectural Coating is superior to other coatings containing inorganic pigments because its resistance has been improved by replacing pigments and metal oxides with more effective corrosion inhibitors. The special combination of additives provides a composite polymer barrier that significantly prolongs the service life of reinforced concrete, protecting both concrete and reinforcement from corrosive electrolytes and aggressive environments.
Application:
  • Contains Migratory Corrosion Inhibitors®
  • Fast-drying
  • UV resistant when cured
  • Forms non-flammable, protective barrier
  • Optimal outdoor performance
  • Available in standard and custom colors
  • Has excellent adhesion to concrete, steel, masonry,copper, plastic, sealers, etc

    MCI® CorteCure™
    Description: MCI CorteCure is a water-based, membraneforming, curing compound that contains Migrating Corrosion Inhibitor (MCI). It is made of biobased renewable materials.

    It is designed to:
    • Retain the hydration water in freshly worked concrete to aid in proper curing and a stronger concrete
    • Be easily removed after UV weathering and traffic after 4-8 weeks (depending on exposure)
    • Be VOC compliant per European and California regulations
    • Provide corrosion protection to embedded reinforcement

    Application: MCI CorteCure should be applied to freshly worked concrete after surface water glaze has disappeared and surface will not be marred by walking workman (generally about 4 hrs depending on concrete mixture used and application conditions). Do not apply when material or surface is below 40°F (4.5°C).

    Stir gently before use. Apply at a rate of 100-300 square feet per gallon (2.45 - 7.36 m2/l). Apply solution by spray (conventional airless or hand pressure spray equipment), roller, squeegee, or paint brush to concrete surface.

    MCI CorteCure is removable so that the concrete surface can receive subsequent treatment. MCI CorteCure is degradable and shall flake off after 4-8 weeks exposure to UV and traffic abrasions. If any coating material remains, it can be removed by a stiff brush and water, or by a pressure wash.

    The tools should be cleaned with soapy water while still wet. MCI® CorteCure®
    Package:MCI CorteCure is available in 5 gallon (19 liter) pails, 55 gallon (208 liter) drums, liquid totes, and bulk.

    MCI® Fiber Grenades
    Description: MCI Fiber Grenades® consist of both fiber and powders containing Migrating Corrosion Inhibitors™ packaged in water-soluble PVA bags.

    The poly propylene based fibers in MCI Fiber Grenades ® add mechanical and corrosion inhibiting benefits. Shrinkage chracking decreased 66%, while the residual strength doubled when compared to concrete alone. The MCI Fiber Grenades® also add extra long corrosion protection because the MCI® is released more slowly. MCI Fiber Grenades® provide corrosion protection from atmosphere and chloride attack, as well as from carbonation.
    Application: MCI Fiber Grenades® are recommended for:
    • All reinforced, precast, prestressed, post-tensioned or marine concrete structures • Steel-reinforced concrete bridges, highways and streets exposed to corrosive environments (carbonation, deicing salts and atmospheric attack) • Parking decks, ramps and garages • Concrete piers, piles, pillars, pipes and utility poles • Restoration and repair of all reinforced concrete commercial and civil engineered structures

    MCI® Fibers
    Description:

    MCI Fibers are mono-filiment polypropylene-based fibers containing Migratory Corrosion Inhibitors (MCI).

    MCIs protect reinforcing steel, galvanized steel and other metals embedded in concrete from corrosion induced by carbonation, chloride and atmospheric attack. When incorporated into the concrete mix, MCIs form a corrosion inhibiting, protective layer on metals. When used with repair mortars and grouts, MCIs will migrate toward the rebars, providing effective corrosion protection.

    The propylene based MCI Fibers also add mechanical benefits. Shrinkage cracking decreased 66% while residual strength doubled compared to concrete without fibers.


    Application: MCI Fibers are recommended for:
    • All reinforced, precast, prestressed, post-tensioned or
    marine concrete structures
    • Steel-reinforced concrete bridges, highways and streets
    exposed to corrosive environments (carbonation,
    deicing salts and atmospheric attack)
    • Parking decks, ramps and garages
    • Concrete piers, piles, pillars, pipes and utility poles
    • Restoration and repair of all reinforced concrete
    commercial and civil engineered structures
    Package:MCI Fibers are available in 5 lb (2.3 kg) and 50 lbs (23kg) bags, and 100 lbs (45 kg) drums.

MCI Peel-off coating represents the ultimate in non-solvent peelable coatings. It is well stabilized against brittleness, and it will not be softened or penetrated by most solvent-based paints. MCI Peeloff coating has extremely low VOC and meets the most strict VOC requirements. The coating is stripped or peeled away prior to equipment use and will not leave residue.
    Application: MCI Peel-off coating intended as a temporary, removable coating. This coating can be applied by spray, roll, brush, or dip. It provides a clear film which allows for inspection of the surface. The film can be peeled from the surface when it is thoroughly dried, leaving a clean, ready-to-use substrate.

A film thickness of 12-15 dry mils (300-375 microns) is recommended on new or uncoated cement. The coating dries to touch in 2 hours. Any tagging is removed with a cold water pressure cleaning of ~ 1200 psi (80 bar); no special cleaning agents are needed. Landscaping surrounding project should be finished prior to application to minimize contamination of the coating.
    Package:
    MCI Wall Defense is packaged in 5 gallon pails, 55 gallon drums, or 275 gallon totes.

    MCI®-2018 Sealer, Patented - Corrosion Inhibitor Treatment
    Description: MCI-2018 is a silane based concrete sealer, containing time-proven Migrating Corrosion Inhibitors (MCI®). MCI- 2018 is a small molecule product, which allows deep penetration into concrete and provides water repellency by chemically reacting with the cementitious substrate under proper application. Treated substrates are hydrophobic and retain their original appearance. MCI- 2018 seals surface pores, which prevents intrusion of chloride and carbonation and protects from the ingress of wind-driven rain. Treated concrete surfaces are fully breathable and their natural moisture-vapor transmission is not affected.
    Application: • MCI-2018 offers a time proven corrosion inhibiting technology that will extend the life of all reinforced concrete structures such as commercial buildings, parking decks, garages, and bridge structures • Protects against the harmful effects of corrosion by migrating into even the densest concrete • Migratory inhibitor reduces further corrosion • Easily applied to concrete by spray, roller, squeegee, reducing the high cost of labor and equipment • Non-toxic, contains no nitrites, phosphates, chromates • MCI-2018 molecules are very small, allowing penetration into the smallest concrete pores • Enhances the durability of reinforced concrete and increases surface abrasion resistance • Blocks carbonation and chloride ion intrusion • Not a vapor barrier • No blushing, peeling or yellowing • Helps protect against alkali attack
