Rapid Set® CEMENT - DATASHEET [Printable PDF]
Rapid Set® Cement is a very fast setting hydraulic cement used in concrete applications requiring the highest durability and fastest strength gain. Mix Rapid Set® Cement with water and aggregates to produce high-performance, one-hour strength concrete, mortar and grout mixtures. The High-Strength, low shrinkage, and superior durability of RapidSet® Cement result in unparalleled concrete performance. Rapid Set® Cement has a proven record of successful projects dating back to 1960.
Excellent for diverse projects including highway pavements, bridges, runways, tunnels, harbors, precast, sidewalks, floors, and many other projects. For larger jobs, Rapid Set® Cement mixtures may be batched using conventional ready-mix or volumetric mixer equipment. Many state and local municipalities throughout the U.S. specify Rapid Set® Cement in their concrete mix designs when speed and durability are important.
