Cortec® Southeast Asia (SEA) is looking forward to penetrating the surrounding region with Cortec® corrosion solutions by expanding its user base at the upcoming Virtual Indonesian Infrastructure Week Exhibition! The live portion of the virtual event will take place November 3rd-5th on the Infrastructure Connect platform where more than 10,000 professionals are expected to gather to learn more about new technologies and innovations related to infrastructure needs. Cortec® SEA is looking forward to the opportunity to introduce MCI® Technologies for extending concrete service life to architects, engineers, contractors, government officials, and many others. In particular, they are eager to discuss the following topics:
• Migrating Corrosion Inhibiting admixtures for new construction: standards, function, and impact on service life
• Migrating Corrosion Inhibitors for protection of PT structures
• Migrating Corrosion Inhibitors for repair and rehabilitation of existing structures
• Preservation of assets during construction delays
Fall and spring are great times for outdoor cleanup. When it comes to concrete, this may involve removing unsightly stains made by oil spills or organic waste. While alkaline or harsh solvent-based cleaners have been the standard treatment, this is no longer necessary thanks to Cortec’s two MCI® biological cleaners that unleash the power of microorganisms to deepclean concrete stains!
MCI®-2061 and MCI®-2062 are two bio-enzymatic cleaners for general-purpose cleaning on concrete, asphalt, and other permeable surfaces. Both are formulated with biodegradable surfactants that lift and disperse the waste. Secondary cleaning action is due to preserved bacterial spores that germinate into active microorganisms when the cleaners are properly applied. These spores digest the waste materials and remain in the substrate after rinsing to continue degrading residual waste materials following the initial cleaning.
When dealing with stains made by hydrocarbons, MCI®-2061 is the cleaner of choice. MCI®-2061 contains
microorganisms specially suited to biodegrading a wide range of hydrocarbons, including (but not limited to) gasoline, diesel, crude oil, benzene, toluene, ethyl benzene, and xylene. It is an excellent option for any concrete surface regularly exposed to hydrocarbon materials:
When the stain is organic based, MCI®-2062 can be used. MCI®-2062 contains free enzymes and microorganisms capable of biodegrading a wide range of organic food waste—including grease, oil, protein, fat, starch, and other solid organic wastes—in order to leave facilities sparkling clean and odor free. This may be indoors on bathroom and kitchen floors or outdoors on grimy dumpster pads and on sidewalks stained with fallen leaves. Furthermore, MCI®-2062 can be used beyond basic surface cleaning activities to help with maintenance of grease traps, drains, and septic tanks. Potential users are countless:
In addition to their hydrocarbon and organic waste digestion power, MCI®-2061 and MCI®-2062 are great cleaning options because they reduce health and safety hazards compared to standard solvent or alkali-based cleaners. They reduce pollution liabilities and even remain active when rinsed away, continuing to work to purify the rinse water and downstream drain lines, sewer systems, grease traps, or holding tanks.
No time is a good time to have oil and organic waste spills soiling concrete surfaces, but now is a great time to unleash the deep-cleaning power of
MCI®-2061 and MCI®-2062 on unsightly concrete stains! Contact the Cortec® MCI® team today for assistance: https://www.cortecmci.com/contact-us/

The nearby shellfish farms, in the ecologically sensitive Adriatic Sea, have influenced bridge’s designer to specify Cortec MCI-2018 as the most desirable corrosion protection solution”
