Throop Company Another photo of concrete production work with Rapid Set Cement at Burbank Airport in California On a daily basis, airports exceed the capacity for which they were designed. Our nation's runways and taxiways are taxed to the limit and in need of repair and upgrading on a continual basis.

Regular Portland Cement (RPC) can take days, even weeks, to achieve the required compressive strength. Closing a runway for even one day, much less several days, can throw an airport into turmoil with delayed flights, irate customers and can result in lost revenue. The solution for timely airport concrete rehabilitation projects is to use the George L. Throop Company in combination with Rapid Set® cement (RSC). By using RSC, the airport runway, taxiway, sidewalk, lighting upgrade, or hardstand can be reopened in two hours or less after concrete placement — saving you time and money. In addition, Rapid Set cement is more durable than Portland Cement and exceeds standards set by FAA-P501 specifications.

Repairing airport runways, taxiways and hardstands has to be done quickly with knowledge and expertise. Mistakes with concrete can be costly. The Throop Company has had experience with all types of weather which can play an important part in making sure that the concrete sets properly.

In addition to different environmental conditions we have and continue to work with tight time schedules. We have years of experience working on airports all over the United States.

We have performed the following airport repairs at international and regional airports:
