Introduction

FOQSCO is the authorized agent of Concrete Canvas in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia and Bahrain. Concrete Canvas (CC) is a flexible, concrete impregnated fabric that hardens when hydrated to form a thin, durable, water proof and fire resistant concrete layer. CC is a low-carbon, environmentally friendly concrete alternative. Typically, 10-times faster to install than conventional concrete solutions; essentially, it’s concrete on a roll. With no need for plant or mixing equipment, CC can be installed without specialist training; simply unroll, secure and add water.

Concrete Canvas

Concrete Canvas®(CC) 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. 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.

Concrete Canvas Hydro

CC Hydro™ (CCH) combines the company's concrete impregnated fabric technology with a highly impermeable, chemically resistant geomembrane liner. The liner incorporates a hi-visibility welding strip which allows joints to be thermally bonded with a double-track or triple-track air channel for on-site testing. CCH has a hard armour surface, protecting the geomembrane liner from puncture, abrasion, weathering, burrowing animals and UV degradation. Compared to traditional concrete solutions, CC is faster, easier and more cost effective to install and has the additional benefit of reducing the environmental impact of concreting works.

Common Applications of Concrete Canvas

Channel Lining

When in need of a solution for channel lining and ditch lining, engineers and contractors worldwide are increasingly turning to Concrete Canvas® (CC). With installation times typically 10-times faster than traditional methods, CC can be installed at rates of up to 400m²/hour.

Slope Protection

A common use for Concrete Canvas® (CC) is slope protection. With no requirement for heavy plant, CC can be installed on limited access sites, a significant advantage over traditional poured or sprayed concrete. Batched rolls of CC allow for manual transportation on site, while bulk rolls can be deployed from a slope's crest for safer installation.

Bund Lining

Providing effective bund lining and containment solutions, Concrete Canvas® (CC) and CC Hydro™ (CCH) have been specified around petrochemical, oil & gas and other utilities sites. While offering a higher level of impermeability for containment applications, CCH provides the same inherent erosion control as CC.

Remediation

Concrete Canvas® and CC Hydro™ provide concrete repair, concrete resurfacing and concrete remediation. CC's flexibility and ease of install allow for rapid refurbishment of existing infrastructure.

Lagoon Lining

As a lagoon lining and bank protection solution, Concrete Canvas ® (CC) has key benefits compared to other solutions. For this reason, CC has been utilized all over the world for projects of varying sizes and in areas where environmental requirements meant traditional concrete was not an option.

Gabion Protection

Gabion protection and gabion erosion control are areas where Concrete Canvas® (CC) can be used to rapidly repair any damage and provide long-term protection to gabion walls. CC can also be used to upgrade or increase the operational life of a gabion structure.

Latest Concrete Canvas Projects

Earlier this year we installed Concrete Canvas for a slope protection application at Ma'aden Aluminum RSA Cell III.

In this beautiful application we used used Concrete Canvas for slope protection of a small hill in Al Bahah region.

When time is critical, Concrete Canvas gets the job done in the shortest amount of time and smallest logistical foot print.
