Concrete Cloth™ GCCM
Concrete Cloth geosynthetic cementitious composite mats (GCCM) are a groundbreaking material technology that makes it possible to use concrete on slopes, in water, and in other hard-to-reach locations, without forms or mixing and minimal equipment requirements. An engineered concrete in roll form, Concrete Cloth GCCM is fabricated with a three-dimensional structure that reinforces the concrete, providing strength and durability. Concrete Cloth GCCM can be quickly cut and secured in place, making it ideal for reinforcing or rehabilitating a culvert or drainage ditch, abutment, berm or other structure. Once hydrated, the cloth cures quickly to form a rigid, durable and water-resistant 5,000 psi armor. The cloth remains flexible for up to two hours and is easily manipulated to fit the contours of irregular installations.
Concrete Cloth material's innovative structure and performance helps extend the ability of cities and transportation departments to economically and effectively repair infrastructure. Compared to traditional concrete repair and construction methods, Concrete Cloth cementitious composite mats dramatically reduce the need for heavy machinery and consequently lessens traffic disruption in busy areas. Less material and simple installation means accelerated project completion and reduced costs, easing the strain on limited infrastructure budgets.
