Kuwait’s extreme environment presents a severe challenge for all building materials and reinforced concrete is no exception. Extreme heat combined with high humidity from the adjacent Persian Gulf subject structurally reinforced concrete to the perfect environment to initiate corrosion. Reaching sustainability goals for the project required extending the durability of the structure and protecting it from corrosion.


Hycrete's dual-action (lower absorption and corrosion protection) MC1000+ was specified to extend the design life of the building by protecting the concrete and reinforcement from the harsh environment.


Structural durability has been enhanced by the inclusion of Hycrete MC 1000+ protecting the building’s architectural concrete design elements with a single permanent product. No exterior sealer means no long-term re-occurring maintenance costs for the owner for the life of the building.
