The speed of installation and high early strength gain means that infrastructure downtime is minimised. In critical infrastructure, where maintenance shut-down periods are fixed, this allows for much greater areas to be lined or repaired.
Over time conventional concrete liners can suffer from widespread cracking due to differential ground movement, leading to significant seepage losses, undermining and, in the worst instances, complete channel collapse.
CCX™ can accommodate a high level of differential ground movement due to the fibre reinforcement embedded within its structure. This prevents crack propagation whilst retaining high levels of impermeability.
CCX™ combines the impermeability of a geomembrane with the protection and durability of concrete. It can be installed as rapidly as conventional geosynthetics and 24 hours from hydration will cure to create a hard-wearing concrete liner which is ready to use.
LOW LOGISTICAL FOOTPRINT
CCX™ has an un-hydrated unit weight of 14.5-15.5kg/m² compared to ~220kg/m² for 10cm of cured concrete. This means it is typically more than 10x more efficient in terms of the logistical footprint, requiring fewer trucks and reducing operational overheads.
