Gunite is pneumatically applied concrete, which can achieve strengths of 6000 to 7000 PSI (cast in place concrete is usually 3000 to 3500 PSI).
Gunite's strength is the result of the dense packing of the material as it is sprayed, as well as the fact that a relatively small amount of water is required to hydrate the cement.
Gunite is uniquely desirable for pool construction because of its inherent strength as well as it's adaptability to unusual shapes.

 Gunite International: Application Procedure, Finish and Curing Gunite   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-08)
If the surface to be gunited is heavily coated with foreign material or has ingrained dirt, it may be necessary to sand blast or wet sand blast the surface using the guniting machine with a specially designed nozzle for the purpose.
The nozzleman, after wetting down the immediate area to be gunited with a blast of compressed air and water, reduces the flow of water at the nozzle, while compressed air is maintained, signals for material.
When guniting in reinforced bars, the nozzle is held close to the bars and the nix hydrated sufficiently to keep the front of the bars clean.

Gunite consists of fine graded aggregate ideally containing not over 6% moisture, mixed with cement in specified ratio and projected pneumatically by compressed air through a fine rubber hose at high velocity, attaining final hydration or wetting just before being ejected from specially designed nozzles.
The guniter at start up, automatically and continuously picks up and presents a metered amount of mix to the pressurised air stream through a series of chambers which are, as they resolve, sealed off from the rubber seal pads.
Selection of aggregates for gunite depends on the type of work to be done and the finish desired.

 What is gunite?
Gunite is a dry mixture of cement and aggregate that is combined with water at the nozzle, as it is sprayed through a gun at high pressure.
In foundation repairs, gunite can be shot directly over damaged, cracked concrete and crumbling rubble walls, leaving a smooth, even surface.
Like gunite, it is sprayed with a gun, but shotcrete uses wet, ready-mixed concrete, which sags when applied to vertical or overhead surfaces (1 — 3+ slump).
