BP-ReCon MC is a high strength, free flowing, shrinkage compensated micro concrete with low alkali content. It provides a dimensionally stable, free flowing micro concrete with controlled expansion. It exhibits excellent thermal compatibility with concrete. The material of BP-ReCon MC 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.

Application Area

BP-ReCon MC is used for repairs to damaged reinforced con-crete elements, particularly where access is restricted and where vibration of the placed material is difficult or impossible. It can be used in various applications such as:
✓ Repair of large sections including encasement of structural elements.
✓ Jacketing of beams, columns and other structural elements for strengthening.
✓ Repair of beams, columns, marine structures, bridges, etc.
✓ Difficult access locations where patch repair is not feasible.
✓ Used as a repair material where cathodic protection is used.
✓ Suitable for voids / sections up to 20 – 150 mm in a single layer.


BP-ReCon MC provides the following beneficial properties:
✓ Exhibits excellent bond with concrete.
✓ Self-compacting, no vibration required
✓ Expansion properties compensate for shrinkage in plastic and hardened state.
✓ Gaseous expansion system compensates for shrinkage and settlement in the plastic state.
✓ 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.
✓ Ensures pile-top integrity as part of a waterproofing system.

Application Guidelines

The mixed material should be placed or pumped continuously. Place entire mixed material within 30 minutes of mixing. If pumping of material is adopted, ensure to lubricate the pump lines by grouting. In situations which require deep sections to be casted, 10 mm down coarse aggregate in the ratio of 1:1 or 1:0.5 by weight of BP-ReCon MC can be added depending on consistency required. Thick mortar consistency of mixed material can be achieved by reducing water to powder ratio for use in special applications. In continuously wet areas or where enhanced bonding is required, it is recommended to use BP- FitBond EA as bonding agent before placing of BP-ReCon MC.
The formwork should be removed after 1-3 days and a curing compound applied. If subsequent coats are to be applied the use of clear polythene is recommended for the first three days after removal of formwork.


BP-ReCon MC is packed in 25kg moisture resistant bags.

Storage & Shelf-life

12 months from date of manufacture when stored under warehouse conditions in original unopened packing. Extreme temperature / humidity may reduce shelf life.
