Corrosion Inhibitors for the Construction Industry

Corrosion inhibitors are crucial for extending the lifespan of construction materials. A S Harrison & Co offers a comprehensive range of products to address various corrosion challenges in the construction industry, ensuring the longevity and integrity of structures.

CorrVerter® Rust Primer

CorrVerter® is an innovative, fast-drying, water-based primer specifically designed to combat rust. This one-coat system converts rusted surfaces into a hydrophobic passive layer, effectively preventing further corrosion. Its unique formulation, which includes chelating agents and PVDC resins, ensures long-lasting protection, making it ideal for treating rusted metal surfaces in construction.

MCI® Admixtures

MCI® (Migrating Corrosion Inhibitor) admixtures are essential for concrete construction. These admixtures are based on advanced amine technology, utilising amine alcohols and amine carboxylates. By integrating MCI® admixtures into concrete, the lifespan of structures is significantly extended as they provide robust protection against corrosion, even in harsh environments. They work by migrating through the concrete to form a protective layer on the reinforcing steel.

MCI® Repair

For concrete restoration projects, MCI® repair products are indispensable. These products are specifically formulated to ensure the longest possible lifespan for repaired concrete. MCI® repair solutions slow the rate of corrosion and safeguard against the ring anode/incipient anode effect, which is a common issue following concrete repairs. This results in more durable and lasting concrete restorations.

MCI® Specialty

A S Harrison & Co also offers MCI® specialty products tailored for various aspects of the construction industry. These include corrosion inhibitors for concrete cleaning, rebar storage, and rust conversion. These specialty products provide flexibility and targeted solutions to meet specific construction needs, ensuring comprehensive protection against corrosion.

MCI® Surface Treatment

MCI® surface treatments are designed for application on existing structures to reduce corrosion rates. These treatments penetrate and migrate through cementitious materials to reach and protect embedded reinforcing metals. By applying MCI® surface treatments, construction professionals can significantly enhance the durability and lifespan of their structures.

VPCI® Plastics & Adhesives

The VpCI® (Vapor Phase Corrosion Inhibitor) technology is pivotal for preventing corrosion in plastics, elastomers, and adhesives. Particularly useful in construction, VpCI® ensures that materials like polyethylene and polypropylene are safeguarded against corrosion. This dual protection through contact and vapor phase inhibitors enhances the reliability and longevity of construction materials.

By incorporating these advanced corrosion inhibitors, the construction industry can achieve greater durability and sustainability in their projects.
