An Introduction to Sprayed Concrete

Sprayed concrete brochure offers expert application guidance

  • 6 Jan 2017

The Sprayed Concrete Association (SCA) has published an updated version of its popular guidance document, An Introduction to Sprayed Concrete.

Developed for the benefit of industry professionals, the 16-chapter publication offers basic practical knowledge of sprayed concrete techniques. Whilst it is not intended as a comprehensive specification or standard, the document provides details on popular sprayed concrete materials and processes, offering best practice advice.

An Introduction to Sprayed Concrete covers robotic equipment, surface finishes, constituent materials and wet and dry processes. It also discusses control issues, such as design and specification, health and safety and quality control and testing.

A glossary of useful terms can be found in the back of the brochure, which is available for free download via the company’s website

The Sprayed Concrete Association

Within the document, the SCA discusses the advantages of specifying one of its members for the supply, design and application of sprayed concrete. SCA members process the training, experience and skills to provide useful advice and guidance.

The SCA is under the umbrella of the Structural Concrete Alliance, which also covers the Concrete Prevention Association (CPA) and the Concrete Repair Association (CRA).
