Sustainability with Cortec MCI
Cortec's foundation has been built around a commitment to our environment and sustainability. We continually strive to improve the performance of our products and our processes while reducing their environmental impact. Cortec's MCI® products not only provide corrosion protection to metals on both new and existing structures, they benefit our environment.
We have admixtures derived from renewable resources such as corn, soy based curing compounds, water-based coatings and repellants, and many of our products also meet NSF Standard 61 approval for use in structures holding potable water.
The U.S. Green Building Council is a 501(c)(3) non profit that developed the LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) Green Building Rating System. LEED certification is the nationally accepted benchmark for the design, construction, and operation of high performance green buildings. Points are available in five main categories such as Materials & Resources, Energy & Atmosphere, Water Efficiency, Sustainable Site, and Indoor Environmental Quality. Certified, Silver, Gold and Platinum levels of LEED certification are awarded based on the total credits earned.

Service Life models allow designers and specifiers to estimate the life cycle for a designed structure. These models take into consideration factors such as mix design, reinforcement type, corrosion inhibiting admixtures, as well as coatings, membranes and waterproofing agents.
