Batimix Concrete 563

Fiber reinforced shotcrete for dry process applications - Reduced shrinkage


BATIMIX Concrete 563 is a pre-blended dry shotcrete mixture. It is used for its shrinkage reducing characteristics. It contains Portland cement type I, selected additives, fibers, and carefully-graded fine and coarse aggregates.

The dry material is introduced in the shotcrete machine, pumped through the hose and compressed air added at the nozzle. It impacts the surface at high velocity resulting in a well-compacted product that is easy to place and consolidate.

Main Purpose

BATIMIX Concrete 563 products are structural materials designed to repair and rehabilitate horizontal, vertical, and overhead surfaces of bridges, garages, beams, and slabs. They are used for ground support in mining, tunneling applications, and the lining of both sewers and shafts. They are also used for slope stabilization and soil nailing. Substrates on which the product may be applied include rock, soil, brick, or any other cementitious surface.

  • Easy to use, suitable for both interior and exterior shotcrete works
  • High early and final compressive strength without added chlorides
  • Reduced bleeding and sagging
  • High degree of adhesion and bonding to the projected substrate
  • Minimized plastic shrinkage cracking due to the presence of fibers
