WHAT IS CC?

CC consists of a 3-dimensional fibre matrix containing a specially formulated dry concrete mix. A PVC backing on one surface of the CC ensures the material is completely water proof. CC can be hydrated either by spraying or by being fully immersed in water. Once set, the fibres reinforce the concrete, preventing crack propagation and providing a safe plastic failure mode.

CC is available in 3 thicknesses: CC5™, CC8™ and CC13™, which are respectively 5, 8 and 13mm thick.

CC can be laid at a rate of 200m²/hour, up to 10 times faster than conventional concrete solutions.
 

Available in man-portable rolls. CC requires less plant, less personnel and no on-site mixing or measuring. Just add water.
 

The speed and ease of installation mean CC is more cost-effective than conventional concrete, with less logistical burden. For example, a single lorry of CC8 can substitute for thirty-four 17T Mixer Trucks.

CC is a low mass, low carbon technology which uses up to 95% less material than conventional solutions. A single pallet of CC can cover the same area as two 17T mixer trucks for many applications.

 

CC KEY PROPERTIES


STRONG

The fibre reinforcement prevents cracking, absorbs energy from impact and provides a stable failure mode.

DURABLE

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

FLEXIBLE

CC has good drape characteristics and will closely follow the ground profile and fit around existing infrastructure. Unset CC can be cut or tailored using basic hand tools.

WATER PROOF

The PVC backing on one surface of the CC ensures that the material has excellent impermeability.

 

FORMATS

CC is available in two standard roll sizes: bulk rolls or smaller, lighter batched rolls. The quantity per roll differs between the CC types as shown in the table below.

BULK ROLLS
Bulk rolls weigh approximately 1.5T and are supplied on 6-inch cardboard cores which can be hung from a spreader beam and unrolled using suitable plant equipment. They provide the fastest method of laying CC and reduce the number of joints required. CC bulk rolls are individually wrapped and palletised on heat treated wooden pallets measuring 1.2 x 1.0m.

BATCHED ROLLS
Batched rolls are supplied on 3-inch cardboard cores with carry handles designed as a 2 to 4-man lift. CC batched rolls are individually wrapped in airtight PE packaging and palletised. 12 batched rolls fit on a standard 1.2 x 1.0m pallet.
