Concrete Cloth (C-C) is a product that originated in the U.K. and Milliken and Company has the North American rights and is now manufacturing C-C at a plant in LaGrange, GA. Imagine two layers of interconnected woven geotextile fabric with a special type of concrete impregnated between the layers. This creates a “Roll-out and Wet” concrete product for covering steep slopes and channels (especially where vegetation won’t grow) for erosion control, relining corrugated metal pipe where the inverts have corroded, or any application where concrete is desired and pouring would be difficult due to access being is a problem. Being very flexible, C-C can be cut with a blade and formed into any shape to create a durable layer of concrete, all without the need for forms, mixing, or pumping equipment. After placement, you simply wet the fabric to activate the cement, and within 24 hours, the product has cured to 80% of the ultimate 6000 psi strength. It can be installed in the rain or underwater (even sea water) and virtually eliminates rescheduling of work due to weather conditions. The properties of C-C include very high wear resistance along with high chemical tolerance, great UV stability for a long usable life, and are fireproof (MSHA approved for use in mines). It meets many ASTM and other standards.
