Cortec’s MCI (Migratory Corrosion Inhibitor) Coating for Rebar is a water-based, environmentally friendly product that provides corrosion protection in outside storage as well as offering powerful corrosion resistance for embedded rebars. As a soft film, it is an option for long-term indoor protection (up to five years) and short to medium-term (six to 24 months) unsheltered outdoor protection. Cortec’s patented MCI technology can rehabilitate existing concrete structures as well as extending the life span of new structures. Corroding rebar in deteriorating concrete often causes costly repairs, financial losses and even worse, hard injuries. MCI Coating for Rebar protects steel, aluminum, cast iron and tin. It can be diluted with water and does not affect concrete adhesion to rebar. It cures to a soft film and eventually hardens. The recommended dry film thickness range is 25-50 microns (1-2 mils). It can be removed by using an alkaline cleaner such as MCI-2060 if needed the coating works well in SO2 and H2S environment.
