Shotcrete, Tunneling & Mining Products

TARGET® SUPERSTICK Low Temperature Shotcrete


TARGET® Low Temperature Shotcrete is made with accurately mass-batched blends of Portland cement, silica fume, sand, coarse aggregate and dry-powdered shotcrete accelerators. Shotcrete aggregates are blended to ACI 506R-90 gradation requirements and shotcretes are available in either ACI Gradation N° 2 (medium) or Gradation No.1 (fine) aggregate gradations. Other aggregate gradations can be manufactured on request.

All materials used conform to the requirements of relevant standards, including: CSA A23.1-94 “Concrete Materials and Methods of Concrete Construction”, ACI 506.2 “Specifications for Materials, Proportioning and Application of Shotcrete”, ASTM C1141 ”Standard Specification for Admixtures for Shotcrete”.


TARGET® Low Temperature Shotcrete is used in a wide range of civil engineering and mining applications where application in low temperature is necessary. Typical areas of use include:

  • Mining applications, including ground support and lining of portals, shafts, drifts,raises, loading pockets, ore passes and underground chambers.
  • Ground support and slope stabilization.
  • Tunnel and shaft lining.


TARGET® Low Temperature Shotcrete offers many advantages to owners, contractors and engineers, particularly in situations where conventional formed concrete construction would not be appropriate or cost effective. Major advantages of using TARGET® Low Temperature Shotcrete include:

  • Supply of a precision mass-batched mixture produced to stringent quality control standards.
  • Ease of application, particularly in difficult to access or remote locations.
  • Elimination or reduction of formwork.
  • Greater thickness of build-up in a single pass relative to conventional shotcrete,
  • Substantial reductions in rebound.
  • Reduction in construction time.
  • Superior bond to (properly prepared) surfaces.
  • Elimination of secondary reinforcing steel or mesh when fiber reinforcement is included in the mixture.
  • High early and later age strengths and low permeability.
