Concrete Canvas (CC) has been used by a huge variety of designers, architects and artists. From furniture to conceptual fitness apparatus, sculptures to art installations, CC’s flexibility, durability, ease of use and fabric-like aesthetic has led to it being used in projects worldwide. For some specific examples of applications see:
Pre-hydrated CC can be cut using hand tools, and the material can be fixed to itself or other surfaces in many different ways.
Set CC can be cut and drilled as with conventional concrete, using angle grinders, construction disc cutters or high-quality tile cutters. It can also be water cut to a fine resolution. CC has excellent drape characteristics, allowing the material to conform to complex shapes, and the fibre surface of CC can be easily painted once set using standard exterior masonry paint.
