From a company perspective, at guncrete we believe that every repair project is different and should be handled individually. Liaison, planning, design, preparation and application play equally vital roles, alongside the provision of a one-stop service to industrial users and engineers alike.
By using skills acquired over decades alongside the most advanced sprayed concreted technologies, a guncrete project is started sooner and finished earlier; saving both time and money.
Repairs with sprayed concrete
Reinforced concrete has a finite life span. When repair work is required, almost all maintenance projects can be undertaken using sprayed concrete. The scope and flexibility of repair work possible with sprayed concrete is unlimited:
- Fire damaged structures
- Cooling towers
- Water retention
- Walls, bridges and overpasses
- Stress relieving arches
- Sewer repairs
- Silos Retaining walls
- Offshore structures
- Jetties and wharves
- Tunnel repairs
- Sacrificial linings
- Epoxies and specialized grouts
- On-site crack investigations using diamond-drilled
- core samples
- Carbonation testing using phenolphthalein agents
- Schmidt hammer testing
- Fluxmeter testing for the location of steel reinforcing
Specific application data and technical guidance is available to guncrete clients on request.
