Gunite is dry shotcrete, which is the preferred term.

In Europe, at least the northern parts, Gunite is a "unknown" term. Here we use shotcrete both for dry and wet. Would prefer if Gunite is redirected to Shotcrete, where the Gunite is covered. Any one who dissagree?

Moved page[edit]

I moved the Gunite page to Shotcrete, made a extention and a paragraph on the naming. Shotcrete is a name that covers both dry and wet mix, so shotcrete is the better name for a topic containing both wet and dry mix sprayed concrete. Oyvind 10:26, August 30, 2005 (UTC)

Reply- Gunite is the term for only the dry process and has been widely used in North America since the first development of the process around 1900. It would be difficult to change terminology so generally used in the industry. In that Gunite refers to only the dry process it is a more specific term. Shotcrete on the other hand covers both the dry and the wet processes, therefore I believe there is room in language usage for both terms. [User: Ted W. Sofis]

Redirect for alternate name[edit]

Some people mistakenly refer to shotcrete as "shockrete". Perhaps a redirect from the later would be helpful.

Gunite Pools[edit]

Do others think it should be mentioned that a large (at least consumer) use of gunite is for inground pools? - MSTCrow 19:11, 11 June 2007 (UTC)[reply]

The placement of gunite for building pools is only one of its many uses. Gunite is the specific term for dry process shotcrete and gunite is commonly used for the vertical and over head repairs of bridges, tunnels, and dams. Gunite is used for slope stabilization and many other applicatications like retaining walls. It is also used in the placement of refractory material in the steel, cement, chemical and power generation industries. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Hereclius (talkcontribs) 00:03, 6 February 2010 (UTC)[reply]

'Sprayed Concrete' is the term which is used most widely outside of the USA, rather than 'shotcrete' which is trademarked. Perhaps this article has been written by the trademark holder, shouldn't it be renamed 'Sprayed Concrete'? -- (talk) 12:46, 24 February 2015 (UTC)[reply]

Shotcrete by itself doesn't appear to be a trademark in the United States: two trademarks are QUIKRETE SHOTCRETE and KING SHOTCRETE SOLUTIONS, a trademark of SIKA. Mdmcginn (talk) 19:49, 4 June 2021 (UTC)[reply]

Additionally EFNARC refer to this as sprayed concrete. See http://www.efnarc.org/publications.html -- (talk) 12:49, 24 February 2015 (UTC)[reply]

Dead Link to One of the Sources[edit]

"Shotcrete inTunnel Construction Introduction to the basic technology of sprayed concrete" by Jürgen Höfler and Jürg Schlumpf appears to be available at the below URL as a paid service or as a trial offer as of April 13, 2017.

The article doesn't mention Heidar Rizouki who supposedly invented the product in 1914. I can't find any historical information on Heidar Rizouki, so I suspect contemporary vandalism. Mdmcginn (talk) 19:49, 4 June 2021 (UTC)[reply]
