Advantages

• Can be pumped or poured into restricted locations.
• Highly fluid to allow for placement without vibration.
• Pre-packed to overcome site-batched variations.
• Rapid strength gain to facilitate early reinstatement.
• High ultimate strengths and low permeability of curedrepair.
• Contains no chloride admixture.
• Gaseous expansion system compensates for shrinkage and settlement in the plastic state.

Description

RCC MicroRepair is supplied as a ready to use blend of drypowders which requires only site addition of clean water to produce a free-flowing non-shrink repair micro concrete.The material is based on Portland cements, graded aggregates and fillers, and additives which impart controlled expansion characteristics in the plastic state, while minimizing water demand. The low water requirement ensures high early strength and long-term durability. For larger repairs, the mixed RCC MicroRepair may be modified by the addition of 5mm to 12mm clean, graded, saturated surface dry aggregates at site.
