Gunnite is “mortar conveyed through a hose and pneumatically projected at High velocity on to a surface” *-ACI

Why is it different from conventional concrete?

Unlike conventional concrete, which is first placed and then compacted (vibrated) in a second operation, gunnite undergoes placement and compaction at the same time due to the force with which it is projected from the nozzle. Because of this it is more dense, homogeneous, strong and waterproof than any other process.

Gunnite is not placed in forms, it can be impacted onto any type of shape Of surface, including vertical or overhead.
