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. We also offer a range of structural strengthening solutions. Call 0191 410 3444 today for help or advice on your sprayed concrete requirements.

The video below shows our teams spraying concrete at a client water treatment works. Sikacem 133 Gunite was spray-applied over reinforcement as part of a scheme of work to refurbish the plant.
Wet sprayed concrete is a ready-mixed formula, 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.
