PAVEMENT FOR AIRPORTS

Concrete for repairs and rehabilitation of airports and airfields.
Airfield pavement has some of the most stringent performance requirements because the safety and lives of people are at stake. The concrete pavement must be durable and reliable for the safe transportation of continuous air traffic. Rapid Set® and Komponent® have been used for airport pavement applications since the mid-1990s, and are regularly used at airports worldwide. Rapid Set is used for reconstruction and rehabilitation of airfield pavement when extended closure times must be avoided. Komponent is used for new construction projects where minimal joint placements and elimination of curled and spalled panel edges are critical to ensuring durability and prevention of costly and dangerous foreign object debris.
