Abstract:

Responding to Mr. Graham's paper on the Bureau of Reclamation's work with polymer shotcrete - The Bureau of Mines has also investigated the use of polymeric materials for "shotcrete" linings, and at the present time, we cannot be as optimistic as Mr. Graham on flammability and toxicity.

Abstract:

We have discussing at considerable length various problems and unanswered questions with the use of accelerators and cement in concrete. The subject of shotcrete strength development has also occupied much of our dialogue. "I want to present to you a shotcreting system that uses neither accelerators nor portland cement and develops high early strength. I am talking about what we call 'polymer shotcrete'."

Abstract:

An economic need necessitated the experimentation and development of a high production nozzle that had a low maintenance factor. With commercial nozzles, as production increased, the maintenance factor accelerated and the nozzle itself proved to be a limiting factor for higher production. The shotcrete was used for rock support in an 18' horseshoe tunnel and was used primarily by itself to make the rock support itself in lieu of using shotcrete with rock bolts or steel sets. All of our equipment is rail-mounded with a sliding floor, and a "California Switch" in each heading.
