Sprayed Concrete Contractor

CSC Services is an experienced and qualified sprayed concrete contractor with expertise across a number of sectors.

Sprayed concrete is a very versatile building material often referred to as Gunite (dry mix) or Shotcrete (wet mix). It provides an efficient way to create concrete walls and supporting structures. Sprayed concrete has high strength, low permeability and high durability. It has high early strength gain, good adhesion and bond strengths.

When form work is not required, spraying concrete can save time and money.  When used in association with steel reinforcement, sprayed concrete can offer endless shape and design solutions. CSC Services can also offer a range of structural strengthening solutions. Call 0191 410 3444 today for help or advice on your sprayed concrete requirements.

CSC Services’ operatives are fully trained in the application of sprayed concrete solutions. CSC Services are members of the Concrete Repair Association.

Types of Sprayed Concrete

Wet sprayed concrete is a ready-mixed formula, which is mixed with air and shotcrete accelerators on application and then applied. It is used when a high set concrete quality is specified and high output is required. Wet sprayed concrete is more durable due to the control over the water being added.

A dry sprayed concrete is mixed with water and shotcrete accelerators on application. This is usually used when smaller quantities or high early strength is required. Dry sprayed concrete is usually used for waterproofing works and preliminary sealing against ingress.  Dry sprayed concrete provides more flexibility.

CSC Services will determine the type of sprayed concrete solution to use according to your refurbishment requirements. CSC Services work with the leading manufacturers of sprayed concrete, undertaking all relevant product and application training.
