Shotcreting 1

Shotcreting, also known as sprayed concrete or gunite, is a construction technique that involves spraying a mixture of cement, aggregate, and water onto a surface using a high-velocity air stream. This process creates a layer of hardened concrete that provides structural support, erosion protection, or surface finishing. Shotcreting is commonly used in a variety of construction applications, including building foundations, tunnels, slopes, retaining walls, and repairs to existing structures.

Shotcreting requires skilled operators and specialised equipment, including a shotcrete nozzle and air compressor, to ensure proper application and quality control. 

At Savinaya, we have expertise in designing and overseeing shotcreting applications to ensure that the technique is used effectively and safely in various geotechnical and construction projects.Whether you need shotcreting for a retaining wall, swimming pool, or tunnel, we will work with you to develop a solution that meets your exact requirements.

We use only the latest, state-of-the-art shotcreting equipment to ensure that our work is of the highest quality. Our equipment is well-maintained and regularly inspected to ensure that it is working at peak efficiency, which helps us to complete projects quickly and with minimal disruption.

Shotcreting Advantages:

Rapid Application

Erosion Protection

Flexibility in Shaping and Contouring

High Bond Strength to Existing Surfaces


Shotcreting is a process of applying a thin layer of concrete or mortar to a surface using a high-velocity pneumatic machine. The process is also called gunite.

Shotcreting has several benefits, including providing a high-strength, durable, and waterproof surface. It can also be applied to a variety of surfaces, including curved or irregular surfaces, and can be used for both indoor and outdoor applications.

Shotcreting can be used on a wide range of surfaces, including walls, floors, ceilings, and even swimming pools. It can be applied to both horizontal and vertical surfaces, as well as irregular or curved surfaces.

In dry-mix shotcreting, the dry ingredients are mixed and then transported to the application site, where water is added to the nozzle. In wet-mix shotcreting, the ingredients are mixed with water before being transported to the nozzle. Wet-mix shotcreting tends to result in a more uniform and consistent finish.

Several factors should be considered when shotcreting, including the surface to be treated, the type of shotcreting mix, the equipment used, and the experience and skill of the operator. Proper preparation of the surface to be shotcreted is also crucial for achieving a high-quality finish. Contact Savinaya Infra for all your shotcreting work.
