MCI®-2022 V/O


MCI®-2022 V/O is a water-based, water-repelling sealer for concrete, brick, masonry units, etc. specifically designed for vertical and overhead applications. It is a ready to-use product and is made up of a low VOC blend of silane/siloxane emulsions and time-proven Migrating Corrosion Inhibitors (MCI®). MCI®-2022 penetrates the concrete, seals its surface and prevents carbonation and intrusion of water and chlorides. Treated concrete surfaces are fully breathable and their natural moisture-vapor transmissions are not affected.

MCI®-2022’s unique feature is its Migratory Corrosion Inhibitor action that will migrate through even the densest concrete structures. It seeks out the steel reinforcing bars embedded within to form a protective monomolecular, corrosion inhibiting coating. MCI®-2022 also protects a multitude of metals including carbon steel, galvanized steel, and aluminum.


  • MCI®-2022 protects against the harmful effects of corrosion by migrating into even the densest concrete
  • Migratory inhibitor reduces further corrosion of the most rusted metals
  • VOC compliant
  • Easily applied by spray, roller, squeegee, or paint brush to any concrete surface reducing the high cost of labor and equipment
  • Non-toxic, contains no nitrites, phosphates, or solvents
  • Water-based and non-flammable for easy handling
  • Penetrates deep into concrete for anode and cathode protection
  • Enhances the durability of reinforced concrete and increases surface abrasion resistance
  • Blocks carbonation and chloride ion intrusion
  • Allows concrete to breathe and vapor to diffuse, is not a vapor barrier
  • Helps protect against acid and chemical attack
  • No blushing, peeling, or yellowing
  • Resistant to alkali attack
