Shotcrete, like any other concrete mixture, will continue to gain strength as long as there are unhydrated cement particles present along with sufficient temperature and moisture. Strength development will generally be quite slow at the ambient temperature reported. The inclusion of supplementary cementitious materials in this mixture is a benefit in this instance as strength will increase as long as calcium hydroxide is available from the hydration of the cement. The specified strength should eventually be attained as long as the ambient temperature does decrease further and some form of moisture is available to the shotcrete.
