Concrete Canvas Ltd manufactures 2 award winning products, Concrete Canvas® GCCM (Geosynthetic Cementitious Composite Mat) and Concrete Canvas Shelters (CCS). Both products are manufactured at the company’s headquarters near Cardiff , in South Wales from where it exports to 40 countries around the world.. Concrete Canvas GCCM has quickly gained market acceptance in the civil engineering sector as a cost-effective alternative to conventional concrete in a wide range of applications, from ditch lining to slope protection. International customers include Shell, BP, Barrick Mining, BHP Billiton, Ove Arup, Halcrow, Carillion and the British Armed Forces.
Concrete Canvas GCCM® (CC) is a flexible cement impregnated fabric that hardens on hydration to form a thin, durable, water proof and fire proof concrete layer, allowing concrete to be used in a completely new way. There is no need for mixing or measuring; the concrete is premixed and cannot be over hydrated, and will set underwater and in sea water.
CC is a low mass, low carbon geo-textile technology which uses up to 95% less material than conventional concrete for many applications. It is chemically resistant, has good weathering performance and will not degrade in UV, as well as having a design life of over 50 years.
Concrete Canvas® GCCM (CC) can be used to line bunds, ditches and slopes to prevent erosion, weed growth and animal damage. It can be installed at rates of up to 800sqm a day and in inclement weather, reducing time required on site and program disruption. CC is hydrocarbon resistant to BS14414 and passed a 56 day immersion test at 50oC. In addition, CC creates no rebound so can be installed around sensitive infrastructure and the man portable batched rolls allow concrete installation in difficult to access areas without the use of plant.
