When solutions are required for ditch lining, whether temporary or permanent, Milliken Infrastructure Solutions offers an easy-to-use product that is ideal for reinforcing and rehabilitating culverts, drainage ditches, abutments or other structures. The structure and performance of Concrete Cloth™ geosynthetic cementitious composite mat (GCCM) 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 matting dramatically reduces 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.
Using Concrete Cloth™ GCCM is a quick way to apply a thin, uniform, protective concrete covering to a sloped surface. It can be applied in all weather conditions, as well as under water. Concrete Cloth materials are flexible and will bend and curve, enabling it to follow the natural contours of berms, slopes and ditches. It can be rapidly unrolled and hardens in 24 hours after saturation to form a waterproof surface. Concrete Cloth is a cost-effective alternative to conventional concrete and can provide drastically reduced maintenance costs, improved impermeability and improved fire resistance of the berm. Easily cut to size with standard tools, Concrete Cloth material can be used as a temporary or permanent solution to line any size or shape of ditch, trench, tank, reservoir or sump.
