The American Shotcrete Association (ASA) has released the new "Shotcrete Specifiers Education Tool, Version 2" which is designed to provide specifiers with a better understanding of the shotcrete process.

Topics addressed include shotcrete references, definitions, processes, uses, the history of shotcrete, video of the shotcrete process, and of course important components of a shotcrete specification.

"The shotcrete process is very versatile and offers the concrete industry many advantages, but a successful shotcrete project is very dependent on a proper project specification" said Joe Hutter, ASA Vice President and Marketing Committee Chair. "We believe that the information provided on this tool will lead to a better understanding of the process and more complete shotcrete specifications".

The tool, a 4 gigabyte USB flash drive, contains numerous informational sources that include two power point presentations entitled "Shotcrete Repair and Rehabilitation of Concrete Structures" and "Shotcrete for Underground Construction." The collection also includes ASA's 10 page full color "Sustainability of Shotcrete" document.
