Cortec Corporation's patented MCI (Migrating Corrosion Inhibitor) technology protects reinforcing metal in concrete from corrosion. Often, corroding rebar in deteriorating concrete is the cause of costly repairs, financial losses, injuries and deaths, but Cortec has the corrosion solution.
MCI greatly extends the service life of new structures by proactively delaying the onset of corrosion, and keeping rates low after initiation. In rehabilitation projects, MCI applications can penetrate a considerable distance to significantly reduce the corrosion rate (up to 80%). Cortec MCI products maintain structural integrity, rehabilitate vulnerable structures, and alleviate environmental concerns.
