Shotcrete should be cured in the same way as any type of exposed concrete. Formed walls are typically not wet cured as they have formwork in place to guard against excessive water loss. Shotcrete can be cured in any or a combination of the following ways:
-continuous misting – best practice
-wet medium (i.e burlap) – good practice
-curing compound – acceptable method
We recommend wet curing (misting and or wet medium) for the first 5 to 7 days where possible.
