It was also used in highwall mining in Pennsylvania to strengthen weak highwall forma- tions and protect workers from any loose debris. Rapid Set works well in dry-mix shotcrete and is being used to line hundreds of sewer pipes, manholes, and drainage culverts. Often, Rapid Set shotcrete can be sprayed as a relatively thin layer due to its high strength and bonding characteris- tics. It is a very good choice for many types of shotcrete applications, including areas that need special attention where abrasion is an issue and shaft liners, grizzlies, hoppers, chutes, open drifts, and stopes where there is a lot of equipment traffic. Rapid Set works especially well in under- ground mining when it is necessary to move in and out of an area quickly.
