It’s comprises of all the materials like cement sand aggregate water and sometimes plasticisers too !! Actually when it is wet we say shotcrete and when it is dry we say it guniting . I have used this in my project. It is used generally when we are using the mesh on cut land areas for safety purposes!! Or where are strengthening or where we cannot use the formworks!! It is placed via very high pressure which is driven by pumps and machines . The aggregates will be mixed dry with cement and these 3 will come out from a single nozzle and water will come out from different nozzle . Both the nozzles will be placed one above other. All of them will be under high pressure and will be directed towards its placing area . During transportation from the nozzle to the placing area it gets mixed and goes to its desired place . Just like we spray fertilisers in field it is also sprayed in the same way .
