Did you know? Gunite was originally invented and named "plastergun" in June 24, 1907 by Carl Ethan Akeley, an American inventor. Trademarked, improvised and patented in 1909, in North Carolina.

Gunite is concrete or mortar conveyed through a hose and pneumatically projected at high velocity onto a surface, as a construction technique.
