Potable Water Protection

MC-RIM Potable Water System

The MC-RIM PW product range from MC-Bauchemie is a surface protection coating for use in structures which house potable water. Hydrolytic corrosion and sulphate can have a damaging effect on the internal concrete surfaces and affect the quality of drinking water as well as the integrity of the structure itself. Because this water is for consumption, MC-RIM PW has been designed for safety and protection and is certified according to European drinking water standards.

Why MC-RIM PW?

The mineral coating system MC-RIM PW was specially developed to meet the high demands of potable water containers and offers a previously unequalled density and life expectancy – providing maximum security coupled with long-term protection. The technology in MC-RIM PW allows high reduction of porosity level as well as extreme chemical resistance for potable water. This results in long term durability for the containment structure.

Potable Water

Advantages

  • Purely mineral system
  • One-component – only to be mixed with water
  • Resistant against leaching and hydrolytic corrosion
  • Total pore volume after 28 days < 5% Vol.
  • High chloride-resistance
  • Certified in accordance with EN 1504 Part 3
  • Harmonised complete system, consisting of: corrosion protection, bond coat, concrete replacement and coating
  • Can be applied by hand or spray application

Testing

Extensive tests carried out by an external test institute, confirm the impressive resistance capacity of MC-RIM PW against leaching and hydrolytic corrosion. This positive behaviour can be attributed to the integrated DySC® technology. Using selected latent hydraulic and puzzolanic components a structure of the most dense sphere packing is formed. Porosity, cavity structure and capillary pores needed for leaching processes are thus reduced to insignificance.
