Cortec® Middle East Receives Dubai Central Laboratory Certification For MCI® Products In Accordance With ASTM C 1582/C1582M-11
Dubai-based Cortec® Middle East LLC has received certification from the Dubai Central Laboratory Department (DCLD) to manufacture and supply MCI® admixtures known as Migrating Corrosion Inhibitors for concrete. Under the terms of the certification of product conformity of the DCLD of Dubai Municipality, Cortec’s MCI®-2005 and MCI®-2005 NS will now be included in a DCL website list of DCLD certified products under certificate number CL18020610 (visit www.dcl.ae for more information). The certification was given after independent auditing confirmed that the products met the requirements of ASTM C1582 Standard Specification for Admixtures to Inhibit Chloride-Induced Corrosion of Reinforcing Steel in Concrete.
Cortec’s MCI®-2005 and MCI®-2005 NS are amine-carboxylate, biobased corrosion inhibiting admixtures for new construction or repair. MCI®-2005 is a USDA Certified Biobased Product that contains 67% USDA certified biobased content. MCI®-2005 NS is also biobased at 27%. Adding these MCI® admixtures to concrete mixes is a simple, time-proven, and cost-effective method of achieving significant enhancement in durability. Their low dosage rate combined with lower toxicity and environmental impact make them attractive alternatives to traditional calcium nitrite corrosion inhibiting admixtures.
The durability of concrete structures is threatened by the high levels of chlorides and other corrosives in the environment. This leads to premature failures and expensive repairs.
The construction industry is shifting towards the design of structures with extended service life. Whether it’s a bridge, tunnel, residential, or industrial building, structural durability simply makes commercial sense while reducing environmental impact.
Cortec’s proprietary MCI® technology protects reinforcing metal in concrete from corrosion. It is an effective and economical technique for the enhancement of durability. Available in different forms it can be used in new construction and repair applications.
