From channel lining for water and drainage management, to canal lining, and ditch lining for irrigation ditches or erosion protection. CC’s flexibility and ease of use makes it the ideal material choice for channels of any size and shape, even in remote locations.

See some of the benefits of using CC for channel lining and ditch lining projects below:

Rapid - CC can be laid at up to 200m²/hour – around 10 times faster than conventional concrete solutions.

Safe & Easy - CC is available in man-portable rolls for applications with limited access. The product comes ready to use, so no mixing, measuring or compacting is required.

Minimal Maintenance - CC lined channels prevent weed growth, silt generation and erosion, reducing the maintenance costs associated with unlined channels, maintaining hydraulic capacity and preventing blockages.

Scour Protection - CC is twice as abrasion resistant as standard OPC concrete, has excellent chemical resistance, good weathering performance and will not degrade in UV.

Prepare the substrate so that surfaces are well compacted, geotechnically stable with a smooth, uniform surface.

It is important to ensure that the CC is jointed at every overlap between layers and that those layers are fixed to the substrate.

It is important to prevent water or wind ingress between the CC and the substrate, both around the perimeter of the installation and along the joints.

It is important to properly hydrate CC, using enough water for the quantity of material used and allowing for drying conditions.
