MCI® Cortecure™


MCI CorteCure is a water-based, membraneforming, curing compound that contains Migrating Corrosion Inhibitor (MCI). It is made of biobased renewable materials.

It is designed to:

  • Retain the hydration water in freshly worked concrete to aid in proper curing and a stronger concrete
  • Be easily removed after UV weathering and traffic after 4-8 weeks (depending on exposure)
  • Be VOC compliant per European and California regulations
  • Provide corrosion protection to embedded reinforcement

Application: MCI CorteCure should be applied to freshly worked concrete after surface water glaze has disappeared and surface will not be marred by walking workman (generally about 4 hrs depending on concrete mixture used and application conditions). Do not apply when material or surface is below 40°F (4.5°C).

Stir gently before use. Apply at a rate of 100-300 square feet per gallon (2.45 – 7.36 m2/l). Apply solution by spray (conventional airless or hand pressure spray equipment), roller, squeegee, or paint brush to concrete surface.

MCI CorteCure is removable so that the concrete surface can receive subsequent treatment. MCI CorteCure is degradable and shall flake off after 4-8 weeks exposure to UV and traffic abrasions. If any coating material remains, it can be removed by a stiff brush and water, or by a pressure wash.

The tools should be cleaned with soapy water while still wet. MCI® CorteCure®

Package: MCI CorteCure is available in 5 gallon (19 liter) pails, 55 gallon (208 liter) drums, liquid totes, and bulk.
