- Model 2020 - Surface Applied, Migrating Corrosion



MCI-2020 is a surface applied, migrating corrosion inhibitor designed to penetrate through cementitious materials including concrete, mortar, and limestone. MCI-2020 migrates in both liquid and vapor (gas) phases through the pore structure, forming a protective, molecular layer on embedded reinforcement. MCI-2020 provides corrosion protection against carbonation, chlorides, and other contaminants. MCI-2020 V/O is a high viscosity version of MCI-2020 which is specifically designed for vertical and overhead applications.

MCI-2020/MCI-2020 V/O are organic corrosion inhibitors. They are considered ambiodic (mixed) inhibitors which means they protect both anodic and cathodic areas within a corrosion cell. MCI- 2020/MCI-2020 V/O contain a synergistic blend of amino-alcohols and salts of carboxylic acids which form a protective layer on embedded reinforcement delaying the onset of corrosion as well as reducing existing corrosion rates.

MCI-2020 and MCI-2020 V/O are recommended for:

  • Preventative maintenance of existing reinforced, precast, prestressed, post-tensioned, or marine concrete structures
  • Bridges, highways, and industrial floors exposed to aggressive environments (chemicals, deicing salts, carbonation, atmospheric attack)
  • Parking garages
  • Concrete piers, dams, offshore platforms, piles, pillars, pipes, utility poles, and cooling towers
  • Concrete potable water structures
  • As a component of Cortec's High Performance Repair System (HPRS)

MCI-2020/MCI-2020 V/O offer engineers, owners, contractors, DOTs, and other government agencies a time proven, corrosion inhibiting technology that will extend the service life of their reinforced concrete structures.

  • Protects against corrosion caused by carbonation, chlorides, and other aggressive contaminants
  • Effectively reduces corrosion rates on metals with existing corrosion
  • ANSI/NSF Standard 61 Approval for structures containing potable water
  • Water based and non-flammable
  • Does not etch, stain, discolor, or otherwise harm glass, metals, or automotive paint
  • Does not contain calcium nitrite
  • Does not contain wax
  • Does not require removal of sound concrete
  • Allows vapor diffusion (not a vapor barrier)
  • Easily applied by spray, brush, or roller
  • Minimal curing time, traffic may resume minutes after application if necessary (dry to touch)
  • Migrates independent of orientation (horizontal, vertical, overhead)
  • Migrates up to 3 inches in 30 days
  • Proven performance in both lab and field testing
  • MCI-2020 V/O available for vertical and overhead surfaces
