CC consists of a 3-dimensional fibre matrix containing a specially formulated dry cementitious mix. A PVC backing ensures the CC is completely waterproof. CC can be hydrated by spraying or full immersion in fresh or salt water. Once set, the fibres reinforce the cementitious mix, preventing crack propagation and providing a safe plastic failure mode. As a result, CC provides a thin, durable, waterproofed and lower carbon alternative to traditional concrete.
CC is available in 3 thicknesses: CC5™, CC8™ and CC13™, which are respectively 5, 8 and 13mm thick.
CC can be laid at a rate of 200m²/hour, up to 10 times faster than conventional concrete solutions.
EASY TO USE
CC requires less plant, less personnel and no on-site mixing or measuring. Just add water. Available in man-portable batched rolls.
LOWER PROJECT COSTS
The speed and ease of installation mean CC is more cost-effective than conventional concrete, with less logistical burden. For example, a single lorry of CC8 can substitute for thirty 17T Mixer Trucks.
CC is a low mass, lower carbon technology which uses up to 95% less material than conventional solutions. A single pallet of CC can cover the same area as two 17T mixer trucks for many applications..allows
The fibre reinforcement prevents cracking, absorbs energy from impact and provides a stable failure mode.
CC is five-times as abrasion resistant as standard OPC concrete, has excellent chemical resistance, good weathering performance and will not degrade in UV. CC is BBA certified with a durability in excess of 120 years when used in erosion control applications.
CC has good drape characteristics and will closely follow the ground profile and fit around existing infrastructure. Unset CC can be cut or tailored using basic hand tools.
The PVC backing ensures the CC is completely waterproof.
CC is available in two standard roll sizes: bulk rolls or smaller, lighter batched rolls.
The quantity per roll differs between the CC types as shown in the table below:
