Concrete Canvas

Concrete Impregnated Fabric…

What is it?

CC Hydro is a revolutionary new containment product from Concrete Canvas Ltd. It combines the company’s concrete impregnated fabric technology with a high impermeability, chemically resistant geomembrane backing. The geomembrane provides a high performance liner with a testable joint for quality assured containment applications. The liner incorporates a hi-visibility welding strip allowing joints to be thermally bonded with a twintrack air channel for on-site testing. The flexible concrete impregnated fabric, hardens on hydration, to provide long term protection to the geomembrane from puncture, abrasion, weathering and UV degradation. This hard armour concrete surface effectively removes the need for concrete, soil or aggregate top cover, normally required with conventional liner systems. CC Hydro is available in 2 thicknesses; CCH5 and CCH8 (5 and 8mm) for a wide range of containment applications.

User Benefits

All-In-One Solution
CC Hydro combines the impermeability of a containment liner with the hard armour protection and durability of concrete, reducing install times and simplifying logistics.

No Top Cover
CC Hydro does not require a protective top cover. This removes the need for additional excavation, the treatment of contaminated arisings and the import of costly fill material.

Maintains Volume Capacity
CC Hydro can be laid directly onto existing profiles without loss of volume capacity for refurbishment projects, providing significant overall time and cost savings.

Reduced Life-Cycle Costs
CC Hydro provides effective weed suppression eliminating the ongoing maintenance cost of soil covered systems. CC Hydro also reduces the end-of-life costs associated with treatment of any contaminated top cover.

Key Properties

High Impermeability
CC Hydro has excellent impermeability and has been independently tested to BS-EN-1377 to have a hydraulic conductivity better than 1×10-12 m/s.

CC Hydro has a hard armour surface, protecting the geomembrane liner from puncture, abrasion, weathering, burrowing animals and UV degradation

Chemical Resistance
CC Hydro has been shown to have excellent resistance to a wide range of chemical reagents, including hydrocarbons, digestates and acidic leachates.

Testable Joints
CC Hydro incorporates a high-visibility welding strip, allowing the joint to be thermally bonded with a twin-track air channel for fast and simple on-site pressure testing.
