Concrete Canvas is a new class of composite material. It is being used in the civil engineering sector predominately for above ground drainage applications such as ditch lining and slope protection. The material can also be used for hard armour capping of earth bunds around oil refinery tank farms, munitions depots and flood defences.
Concrete Canvas or its technical bane GeosyntheticCementitious Composite Mat GCCM is a flexible canvas fabric, impregnated with specially formulated concrete mix that hardens when hydrated to form a thin, durable, water proof and fire resistant concrete layer. CC allows concrete construction without the need for plant or mixing equipment. Simply position the Canvas and just add water.
