ConBlock MIC antimicrobial additive/coating is ideal for concrete and cementitious products.
Microbial induced corrosion (MIC) occurs in unique environments that develop because of a particular chain of events. During this chain of events, an acid generating bacteria called Thiobacillus will grow on the surface of concrete. The excreted acid will begin to corrode the concrete and harsher bacteria strains will continue to develop. ConBlock MIC breaks this chain of events by creating an uninhabitable environment to these organisms on the concrete's surface, protecting the concrete from microbiological corrosion.
Whether integrated throughout the matrix of the concrete when used as an admixture and/or directly applied to the concrete as a surface treatment, ConBlock MIC inhibits the growth of bacteria, fungi, mold and algae. The unique chemistry of ConBlock MIC creates a chain of molecules that are chemically bound to the concrete. Gram-negative organisms are attracted to the positive charge in the ConBlock MIC molecule resulting in a rupture of the organism's outer cell. With a ConBlock MIC treatment, the concrete surface becomes uninhabitable to microbiological organisms. 800.332.7325, conseal.com
