Shotcrete Advantages

HCM Shotcrete
Shotcrete has often been described not as a material but as a process.
Both wet and dry processes produce a material that exhibits superior hardened properties to high quality conventional concrete, such as high strength, low permeability and high durability. These properties allow shotcrete to be used in most cases as a structural material.

Shotcrete has high strength, durability, low permeability, excellent bond, and limitless shape possibilities.

Although the hardened properties of shotcrete are similar to conventional cast-in-place concrete, the nature of the shotcrete placement process provides additional benefits, such as excellent bond with most substrates and instant or rapid capabilities, particularly on complex forms or shapes
