Concrete Canvas® is part of a revolutionary new class of construction materials called Geosynthetic Cementitious Composite Mats (GCCMs). It is a flexible, concrete filled geotextile that hardens on hydration to form a thin, durable and water proof concrete layer. Essentially, it’s Concrete on a Roll™. Concrete Canvas® GCCM (CC) allows concrete construction without the need for plant or mixing equipment: just add water.
Concrete Canvas consists of a 3-dimensional fibre matrix containing a specially formulated dry concrete mix. A PVC backing on one surface of the Concrete Canvas ensures the material has excellent impermeability. Concrete Canvas can be hydrated either by spraying or by being fully immersed in water. Once set, the fibres reinforce the concrete, preventing crack propagation and providing a safe plastic failure mode. Concrete Canvas® GCCM is available in 3 thicknesses: CC5TM, CC8TM and CC13TM, which are 5, 8 and 13mm thick respectively.
