Concrete Canvas (CC) can be used to rapidly reline and refurbish existing concrete structures suffering from environmental degradation and cracking.
CC provides a remediation solution which is fast, easy and cost effective to install, other key advantages include:
- Cost Saving: Repairing existing concrete infrastructure can prove costly, difficult and time-consuming, typically requiring the removal and replacement of existing concrete which is extremely difficult, requires heavy plant and a large site team.
- Improved Impermeability: CC joints can be thermally welded or sealed with mortar to effectively reduce water loss.
- Minimum Volume Loss: CC typically replaces 100-150mm of poured or sprayed concrete. Therefore re-lining a channel or reservoir with just 5, 8 or 13mm of CC minimises capacity losses associated with conventional solutions.
- Low Manning’s Number: CC has been tested by the TRI Institute in the US to ASTM 6460 and shown to have a Manning’s number of n = 0.011. A low Manning’s number improves the channel flow characteristics and overall efficiency.
