Most of the concrete work was already done when a project in Saudi Arabia hit construction delays. This posed the problem of rusted rebar in concrete, as many rebars on in-fill beams and expansion joints were left exposed in a corrosive environment. Cortec® Middle East recommended treating preexisting rebar corrosion with CorrVerter® MCI® Rust Primer and applying MCI® CorShield® on all other exposed rebar for outdoor corrosion protection. These products provided an economical solution and satisfied the requirements of all involved.
