SHOTCRETE (SPRAYED CONCRETE)



ShotcreteShotcreting is the process of applying wet pre mixed concrete via a high pressure hydraulic concrete pump through a line where high pressure air is injected at the nozzle to increase the velocity of the concrete exiting the gun. This sprayed concrete can be projected at an adjustable velocity onto a myriad of different surfaces. Shotcrete is typically sprayed onto either conventional reinforcing bars or mesh, it can also incorporate steel or synthetic fibers as part of the concrete mix.

Shotcrete has a variety of applications and is utilised routinely within the ground engineering sector. Piling and Civili Australia has experience in using sculptured, coloured, reinforced shotcrete in conjunction with other stabilisation methods in numerous projects such as mines, road & rail infrastructure, retaining walls and for a variety of slope stabilisation & rockfall protection projects.
