Concrete Canvas, is a flexible, cement impregnated fabric that hardens when hydrated to form a thin, durable, water and fire proof concrete layer. Concrete Canvas allows concrete construction without the need for plant or mixing equipment. Simply position the Cloth and 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 cloth ensures the material is completely water proof. The material 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 is available in 3 thicknesses: CC4, CC8 and CC13, which are 5, 8 and 13mm thick respectively. Other widths and thicknesses are available upon request. Easy To Use Concrete Canvas is available in man portable rolls for applications with limited access or where heavy plant equipment is not available.There is no need for mixing or measuring, the concrete is premixed and cannot be over hydrated. It will set underwater and in sea water. Rapid Once hydrated, Concrete Canvas remains workable for 2 hours and hardens to 80% strength within 24 hours. Accelerated or retarded formulations can be produced to meet specific customer requirements. Flexible Concrete Canvas has good drape characteristics allowing it to take up the shape of complex surfaces including those with a double curvature. The unset Cloth can be cut or tailored using basic hand tools. Strong The fibre reinforcement prevents cracking, absorbs energy from impacts and provides a stable failure mode. Durable CC is chemically resistant, has good weathering performance and will not degrade in Uv. Water Proof The PVC backing on one surface ensures that the material is completely water proof and chemically resistant. Fire Proof CC is a ceramic and will not burn.
