Cortec® Corporation (St. Paul, MN) has introduced MCI®-2018 V/O water repellant, a higher-viscosity version of its MCI®-2018 sealer for vertical and overhead applications.
According to the company, its new line of 100% active silane water repellants chemically reacts with concrete surfaces to form a strong bond with the substrate. The sealer contains corrosion-inhibiting molecules that penetrate pores to create a hydrophobic layer that repels water and keeps out chlorides without affecting the moisture vapor transmission of the concrete, Cortec reports.
MCI®-2018 V/O can be applied by spray, brush, or roller. Increased viscosity makes the sealer easy to apply to bridge supports, garage pillars, or building walls. MCI®-2018 V/O also dries without affecting the appearance of the surface, Cortec says.
MCI®-2018 V/O has been tested by AMEC Laboratory and is certified to comply with Alberta DOT standards for type 1B and 1C penetrating sealer, the company reports.
