Hays, PE, Director General, Word Corrosion Organization.  Abstract: “At US 1.8 trillion, the annual cost of corrosion worldwide is over 3% of the world’s GDP.  Yet, governments and industries pay little attention to corrosion except in high-risk areas like Read More →

Compelling Information: Molecular Anti Corrosion

Compelling Information: Molecular Anti Corrosion

The most compelling reason to use MAC S11 or MAC A30 as the very first coating/treatment in all and any application to totally staunch/inhibit oxidation/ rust at the actual source can be drawn in a ‘simple to understand analogy’ in medical terms for the treatment of a highly infectious/septic, life-threatening, diseased wound. In the case of a wound, the source Read More →

Concrete Cancer & Concrete Spalling Explanation

Concrete Cancer & Concrete Spalling Explanation

What is Concrete Cancer? Concrete Cancer is caused by many factors: Factors Include: carbonation, moisture, efflorescence and salt. When concrete cracks, water and water-borne corrosive pollutants penetrate through the cracks causing the steel reinforcement deep inside to rust. Rusting steel then sheds its skin forcing the layers of rust to expand and push away the Read More →
