What Is Rapid Set Concrete?

Rapid Set®Belitic Calcium Sulfoaluminate (BCSA) concrete is the top choice for design and construction professionals who need a concrete mixture that exhibits minimal shrinkage and sets quickly, reaching the required flexural and compressive design strengths in a very short period of time, allowing infrastructure to be returned to service. 

It is characterised by its fast-curing time and strength development, durability, and reduced shrinkage, emerging as a long-lasting, durable concrete that is an innovative alternative to traditional cement. This makes it ideal for diverse projects including highway pavements, bridges, runways, tunnels, harbours, precast, sidewalks, floors, and many other applications.

It has been used as a concrete repair and construction material in the US since the 1970s and has been utilised in Australia since 2007 with a proven track record of successful projects such as the replacement of concrete pavement at Melbourne and Sydney airports.

The 5 S's of Rapid Set Concrete

  • Speed of Construction – construction times are dramatically reduced due to the curing times

  • Strength – high early strengths means that assets can return to service sooner

  • Shrinkage – minimal shrinkage compared to alternative products

  • Sulphate Resistant – improving the slabs longevity and durability

  • Sustainability – reduction of CO2 emissions during the production and delivery methods remove wastage

What Our Client Say About Us

M1 Concrete Slab Replacement

As one of the busiest highways in Australia, the M1 Motorway is a major link along the East Coast, linking Brisbane and Sydney as an integral part of National Route 1. But as the use of the Motorway increased, maintenance and upkeep was essential to ensure the safety of M1 users while extending the life of the Motorway Pavement. Antoun was engaged to rehabilitate these sections with the least amount of traffic disruption and to be ready for the resumption of traffic at 4am AEST.

Antoun’s Rapid Setting Cement achieved high compressive results, translating into a significant cost saving in terms of materials and labour required, which reduced the overall project delivery time and minimised delays to the public.

  • 26MPa compressive strength in 3 hours 
  • 62% saved on cost 
  • 70% saved time
