Shotcrete’s Superiority in Surface Repair

Though the two share many qualities, shotcrete differs from concrete in several important ways. While concrete must be placed on the ground or into forms and requires vibration for compaction, shotcrete demands neither. Shotcreting is a method of applying concrete at high velocity through a high-pressure nozzle, hose, and pump. It is stronger and denser than conventional concrete and provides an effective solution for repairing many surfaces, including concrete, whether vertical or sloped.

Save Time & Money: Shotcreting Contractors for Edmonton / Northern & Central Alberta

Shotcrete easily bonds to irregular surfaces, such as rough concrete, dirt and rock, and it attains a high strength quickly. Shotcreting shoring with soil nails or rock anchors helps to reduce excavation costs by allowing the material to be placed vertically with little or no slope. These factors allow for much more design freedom and application flexibility and typically result in time and money savings.

Other benefits of using shotcrete include:

  • Full access and visibility of reinforcing and concrete placement
  • As much as 30-50% faster when used in new construction
  • Eliminate the need for cranes
  • Significant conventional formwork material savings – as much as 100%
