Cortec has developed a new waterbased corrosion inhibiting, concrete admixture. The "MCI 2005” provides protection to metallic reinforcement in concrete structures. This organic admixture protects carbon steel, galvanized steel and other metals embedded in concrete from corrosion induced by: carbonation, chloride, atmospheric attack and other corrosive contaminants. A unique feature of the admixture is that it can migrate a considerable distance through concrete, forming a corrosion inhibiting protective layer on metals. It maintains structural integrity and extends the service life of concrete structures while being environmentally friendly. The product is ambiodic (mixed), meaning it protects both anodic and cathodic areas within a corrosion cell. This corrosion inhibiting admixture is non-toxic, non-flammable and is bio-based (produced from sugar beets,). It conforms to ASTM G109 – "Standard Test Method for Determining Effects of Chemical Admixtures on Corrosion of Embedded Steel Reinforcement in Concrete Exposed to Chloride Environments" and has approval to meet NSF Standard 61 approved for potable water applications.
