Geo-Technical Contracting & Engineering
Shotcrete is concrete conveyed through a hose and pneumatically projected at high velocity onto a surface, as a construction technique. It is reinforced by means of conventional steel rods, steel mesh, and/or synthetic fibres. Fibre reinforcement (steel or synthetic) is also used for stabilization in applications such as slopes or tunnelling.
Shotcrete is placed and compacted at the same time, due to the force of application with the nozzle. It can be sprayed onto any type or shape of surface, including vertical or overhead areas.
