THE SCIENCE OF CONSHIELD
THE SCIENCE OF CONSHIELD

ConmicShield® Is a proven technology for effective long term prevention of bacterial corrosion of concrete in highly corrosive (MIC) sanitary sewer environments.

WHAT IS MIC CORROSION?
WHAT IS MIC CORROSION?

Sulfuric acid produced by aerobic bacteria quickly corrodes concrete, resulting in severe damage.

Crystal-X is a liquid concrete additive designed to make new cementitious installations permanently watertight.

ConShield® is "bio-tech armor" for concrete
Approximately 40% of all drainage structures in the US are made of concrete. Erosion of America’s wastewater systems by the effect of “Concrete Corrosion” is causing premature replacement of failed structures under highways causing expensive and disruptive repairs.

ConmicShield® is a unique solution designed to stop the corrosion before it begins. Incorporated into the concrete mix like any liquid additive ConmicShield® is a highly charged cationic polymer that is dosed directly into the concrete at the time of production. When gram negative or gram positive bacteria come into contact with concrete that has been fortified with ConmicShield®, their cell structure will rupture, killing the bacteria. The cell rupture is caused by exchanging a biostatic charge. It is not consumed, it does not dissipate and it does not produce toxic metabolites. It is safe to handle and it leaves no environmental residue. Microorganisms are completely destroyed on contact which does not allow for microbial mutations to ever develop on treated ConmicShield® concrete. The concrete structure becomes uninhabitable for bacteria to colonize on the concrete and convert the H2S (hydrogen sulfide gas) into H2SO4 (sulfuric acid). Since it is not a surface treatment, it cannot wash off, chip off, delaminate, or disbond. The protection is permanent and lasts just as long as the concrete.
Benefits of Specifying ConShield®
  • DURABLE - ConmicShield® prevents the colonization and growth of acid-producing bacteria on concrete in sanitary sewers. Once ConShield is incorporated into the mix, the bacteria cannot develop an immunity because bacteria are physically destroyed.
  • INTERNAL PROTECTION - Since ConmicShield® is fully incorporated into the concrete mix and is molecularly bonded to its ingredients, it lasts as long as the concrete. ConmicShield® is not a surface treatment; it is throughout the entire thickness of the pipe, manhole or structural lining.
  • COST EFFECTIVE - ConmicShield® does not require spark testing, seam welding or adhesion tests. ConmicShield® costs less to install than coatings or linings since it is precision metered into the mix. Expensive field applications, testing and repairs are eliminated.
  • PROVEN PERFORMANCE - Since its first commercial use in concrete in 1996, ConmicShield® has provided long-term MIC corrosion protection to more than one-million square feet of concrete throughout the World.
  • QUALITY CONTROL - ConmicShield® is provided through certified users who demonstrate their accurate and consistent procedures for mixing, processing and record verification.
  • QUALITY CONTROL - ConmicShield® is available through certified precast concrete pipe and manhole producers, ready-mix suppliers, and rehabilitation specialists throughout the World.
