What is Shotcrete you might ask?

Shotcrete has been described as not only a material provided, but a process as well utilizing both wet and dry applications to produce a material with significant harder properties compared to high quality conventional concrete. Such properties can include increased hardness, low permeability and significant durability!

While Shotcrete may appear similar to conventional cast-in-place concrete, shotcrete offers excellent bonding with most substrates either instantly or in a rapid fashion, especially when conformed to shapes or complex forms. Such properties of either application, dry or wet, can be further enhanced with different additives such as:

  • Silica Fume — Provides reduced permeability, increased compressive and flexural strength, increased resistance to alkali and chemical attack, improved resistance to water washout, reduced rebound levels, and allows for thicker single pass applications;
  • Air-Entraining Admixtures — Improve pumpability and adhesion in wet-process shotcrete and freeze-thaw durability in both wet and dry processes;
  • Fibers — Control cracking, increase toughness values, improve impact resistance and energy absorption; and
  • Accelerators — Improve placement characteristics in adverse conditions, allow for thicker single pass applications, increase production capabilities, and reduce the occurrence of fallouts on structures subjected to vibration.
