Concrete Canvas is part of a revolutionary new class of construction materials called Geosynthetic Cementitious Composite Mats (GCCMs). It is a flexible, concrete impregnated fabric, that hardens on hydration to form a thin, durable, water proof and fire resistant concrete layer. Essentially, it’s concrete on a roll. Concrete Canvas GCCM (CC) allows concrete construction without without the need for plant or mixing equipment: just add water.
CC consists of a 3-dimensional fiber matrix containing a specially formulated dry concrete mix. A PVC backing on one surface of the CC ensures the material is completely water proof. Concrete Canvas can be hydrated either by spraying or by being fully immersed in water. Once set, the fibers reinforce the concrete, preventing crack propagation and providing a safe plastic failure mode.
Concrete Canvas has been used by a huge variety of designers, architects and artists. From furniture to conceptual fitness equipment, sculptures to art installations, Concrete Canvas’s flexibility, durability, ease of use and fabric-like aesthetic has led to it being used in projects worldwide.
