Phoscrete MPC: Concrete that’s Tougher than Winter

If you’ve ever overseen bridge maintenance, you know one thing for sure—winter weather can wreak havoc on a bridge. Every year, winter storms cause massive damage to bridges across the United States and Canada, leaving them weakened and potentially structurally unsound. But what if there was a way to make bridges more resistant to winter weather?  Enter Phoscrete MPC concrete—the concrete that’s tougher than winter!

What is Phoscrete MPC?

Phoscrete MPC (Magnesium-Phosphate-Cement) concrete is an innovative blend of magnesium phosphate cement and aggregates that is designed to withstand extreme temperatures and inclement weather. It has been tested in some of the harshest climates in North America and has proven to be extremely durable and resilient. Unlike traditional Portland cement, Phoscrete MPC sets quickly at low temperatures, allowing bridge maintenance crews to repair damaged structures quickly and efficiently.

The Benefits of Phoscrete MPC

Not only is Phoscrete MPC tough enough to stand up against even the coldest winters, but it also has several other benefits. MPC concrete is highly resistant to freeze-thaw cycles and deicing salts, which can cause considerable damage. Additionally, it prevents chloride intrusion which makes it corrosion-resistant—a major plus when it comes to structural integrity. Finally, some Phoscrete MPC formulas mix with a liquid activator instead of water so they can be installed in sub-freezing temperatures when traditional concretes are not an option. Even in the cold temperatures of winter, Phoscrete MPC still sets fast!
