PRESS RELEASE

CONCRETE CANVAS PATENT SUCCESS REPEATED AS PRELIMINARY INJUNCTION AGAINST EUROBENT/TILTEX™ UPHELD.


11 NOVEMBER 2019

In April 2018 a Polish court granted a preliminary injunction against Eurobent Sp.zo.o – the manufacturer of Tiltex™ (a cement/sand filled GCL product marketed as a GCCM*) – to refrain from infringement of Concrete Canvas Technology Ltd.’s patent PL/EP 2027319. The preliminary injunction has been final and binding since June 2018.

The court has again ruled** that the preliminary injunction is upheld and Eurobent Sp.z o.o. must not infringe Concrete Canvas Technology Ltd.’s patent PL/EP 2027319.

The fine for non-compliance remains amongst the highest on record set by a Polish court for a case of this type.

Concrete Canvas Ltd. wish to reiterate that they will seek to enforce their intellectual property rights where they have grounds to believe that they are being infringed by a manufacturer, distributor or otherwise.

In October 2017, Concrete Canvas® GCCM* (CC) was used to line a channel at the side of the Three Arch Bridge which runs over the rail line in Sherborne, Somerset. The purpose of the channel was to divert surface water runoff from farmers fields away from an embankment that had previously slipped due to saturation.

The works were carried out by Suttle Projects on behalf of Osborne, for Network Rail, with input and Consultation provided by from Arcadis, who specified CC as a robust channel lining solution that would require minimal future maintenance.

The project was carried out in two stages to suit the site programme – this project was carried out alongside a larger project which was required to reinstate an embankment which failed during a storm event.

Read the full case study here, to find out how the project was carried out, and what the Director of contractor Suttles thought of the product.
