CE marking is a certification that indicates conformity with health, safety, and environmental protection standards for products sold within the European Economic Area (EEA). The CE marking is also found on products sold outside EEA that are manufactured in or designed to be sold in the EEA. This makes the CE marking recognisable worldwide even to people who are not familiar with the European Economic Area.
Cortec's CE certificate was issued by IGH Institute, a Croatian company active in civil engineering professional services and scientific research. IGH conducted extensive testing for MCI 2005 before issuing the certificate.
MCI-2005 is an organic, biobased corrosion inhibitor for the protection of metallic reinforcement in concrete structures. It contains a blend of amine salts of carboxylic acids. Unlike calcium nitrite admixtures, which have a set accelerating effect that can cause early setup problems, MCI- 2005 delays set time, making the concrete easier to work with and reducing the heat of hydration. Other advantages are that MCI-2005 contains 67 per cent USDA certified biobased content and is certified to meet ANSI/NSF Standard 61 for use in large potable water structures.
MCI 2005 is produced by CorteCros, a member of the Cortec Corporation group. CorteCros has recently expanded its production facility and storage capacity in Split. This is now Europe's main production and distribution point for Cortec's corrosion protection chemistries. In addition to manufacturing and testing, CorteCros provides integrated solutions and full technical support for Cortec's products and services.
