Applying Shotcrete The Right Way - Grant Smith

These are just two of the many examples of the proper way to apply shotcrete. Pouring or shooting the entire floor first or minimally shooting three feet of the floor and the cove.

This allows rebound and trimmings from the wall to fall on a hardened flooor and be scooped out. Keeping your hand from covering the top part of the nozzle allows the paste and aggregate to stay intact.

Covering the nozzle partially separates the past from the aggregate. If you follow at least these two simple rules that are mandated by the ACI and ASA you will be ahead of your competition in ensuring your client has a shell that will last.
