Concrete deterioration due to corroding rebar is a pervasive issue leading to costly repairs, financial losses, and safety concerns. This corrosion, stemming from an electrochemical process, occurs when dissimilar metals are embedded or variations exist in surface characteristics. Additives play a crucial role in concrete protection and repair, offering solutions during the mixing process to extend service life.
MCI® admixtures stand out for their independence from chlorides, providing protection even in cracked concrete. Amino Alcohol Based and Amine Carboxylate Based admixtures, along with On-Site Additions, cater to diverse project needs.
In concrete repair, MCI® ensures longevity by slowing corrosion rates and tackling the ring anode effect. It seamlessly integrates into repair mixtures, migrating through adjacent areas to shield embedded reinforcement. Additionally, MCI® serves as a passivating grout for exposed rebar or as a topical treatment for existing surfaces.
For existing structures, MCI® offers topical treatments, in Amine Carboxylate Based and for Water Repellent uses, penetrating and migrating through cementitious materials to protect embedded metal. Versatile enough for vertical, overhead, and horizontal surfaces, MCI® surface treatments provide corrosion resistance, with some variants including sealants for added protection.
Concrete protection and repair are critical, and MCI® additives are at the forefront, addressing corrosion challenges comprehensively. From preventing cracks to slowing corrosion rates and offering topical treatments, MCI® stands as a versatile and effective solution. Elevate your concrete projects, ensuring extended service life and resilience against corrosive elements, with our advanced range of MCI® additives.
Trust in our expertise to mitigate the impact of corrosion, safeguarding structures for the long term.
Product and customer insights
Despite numerous cleanings, the productivity of the Reverse Osmosis plant would not recover from severe membrane fouling. The membrane autopsy revealed that the ferric hydroxide was seeding
silica polymerization and that even while the ferric hydroxide was removed, the silica scaling was continuing to grow.
The plant was experiencing weekly shutdowns for fiber clean up (~ 3 kg bags of matted slurry is cleaned per week). The shut downs were costly as they reduce plant availability for production.
The International Maritime Organisation (IMO) regulation, known as IMO 2020 was the the largest change in regulation relating to marine fuels impacting 75% of the fuel used by the shipping industry.
Keeping drilling costs low using Redi-Guard™ High Performance, an ecologically friendly drilling fluid technology with revolutionary rheological and shale encapsulation properties
AWC A-110 effectively inhibited scale at a dosage of 3.5 ppm and an operating pH of 6.9. This increase in operating pH reduced the district’s annual acid consumption by ~$350K per year based on their current production.
Research indicates that Sea Buckthorn may be able to strengthen the immune system. One in vitro study focused on the possible immunomodulatory properties of Sea Buckthorn.
MCI® -2020 V/O and ChemMaster’s Colorsil were chosen to repair and protect the walls based on their 20 year warranties and the fact that together they could fulfill the other specified repair design requirements.
The East Hokkaido region is known to have the highest volume of potato product in Japan. Unfortunately, a potato farmer in the area was experiencing a high rate of potato scab infection in his agricultural field.
