MCI® CorShield®



MCI® CorShield® provides excellent protection in outside storage as well as offering excellent corrosion resistance for embedded reinforcement. This product is water based and environmentally friendly.

The recommended film thickness range is 1-2 mils (25-50 microns) dry film thickness. As a soft nontacky film, MCI® CorShield® is an excellent choice for long-term indoor protection (up to 5 years*) and short to medium-term (6-24 months*) unsheltered outdoor protection. The product cures to a soft non-tacky film and eventually hardens. MCI® CorShield® has been tested for reinforcing steel bond strength in accordance with ASTM A944-99. The results of this test were exceptionally good confirming that MCI® CorShield® does not have to be removed prior to embedding in concrete.
