Cortec Corporation

MCI®-2012 IntegraPel from Cortec is an integral water-based organic, waterproofing and corrosion-inhibiting admixture designed to prevent or retard corrosion of steel reinforcement in new concrete structures. It reduces the intrusion of corrosive species into the concrete and provides a self-replenishing protective layer on embedded reinforcement with Cortec's patented, time-proven migratory corrosion inhibitor (MCI®). The product is particularly suited as a corrosion-preventative for concrete construction exposed to corrosive environments (carbonation, chlorides and atmospheric attack) and is formulated to reduce porosity of the concrete.
