What is Gunite?
Gunite is a process for mixing and applying concrete simultaneously. While some concrete applications require mixing concrete beforehand, this process uses a dry mixture, which is the gunite, and feeds it into a high-pressure water jet, mixing and applying concrete at the same time. MJS Materials can provide this dry mixture for all of your quick concrete application needs!
Gunite is very frequently used when constructing pools. The pre-mixed dry material is loaded into a hopper, which is then fed into a high-pressure hose and mixed with water, creating a sprayable, easily applied concrete. The velocity that this process includes makes it easy for concrete to bind together during application. This reduces the chances that your concrete will develop cracks. This process is also very accommodating to worker’s time, since there is no racing against the clock to work with concrete before it sets — it’s only ever wet the moment it is applied, meaning that workers can start and stop as needed. As an added benefit, this method tends to be much more cost-effective than other application processes, such as shotcrete.
