There are areas that have no problem getting values lower than the most stringent ACI requirement of 0.06% for prestressed concrete with no special adjustments. It would be prudent to test each of the proposed shotcrete constituents to determine their soluble chloride ion content. The most likely suspects are the aggregate and water sources. Typically portland cement and silica fume would contribute little, if any, detectable chloride ions. Assuming this would be a dry-process application, the only admixture other than the silica fume might be an air entraining agent, which would not provide any chloride ions. This leaves only the aggregates and water as the sources. At a minimum, the aggregates and water should be tested by a qualified laboratory for soluble chloride ion content. Alternate sources of aggregates and water may be required based on the laboratory results.
