MCI®-2018 X


MCI®-2018 X is a 100% silane penetrating water repellent. It provides great protection for concrete against water ingress and other contaminants. MCI®- 2018 X lines the pores of the concrete matrix with a hydrophobic layer and boosts the durability and service life of concrete structures. MCI®-2018 X can be conveniently applied on top of a penetrating surface applied corrosion inhibitor (SACI) for a full system of protection against moisture and corrosion.

How it works

MCI®-2018 X provides water repellency by chemically reacting with the cementitious substrate under proper application, decreasing the ingress of aggressive materials. If applied after a penetrating SACI, MCI®-2018 X prolongs the protection period of the corrosion inhibitor.
