Concrete Cloth® GCCM is a flexible, concrete-impregnated fabric that hardens on hydration to form a thin, durable, waterproof and fire-resistant concrete layer. Essentially, it is concrete on a roll.

The unique structure of Concrete Cloth® GCCM makes it easy to install in a range of applications, such as channel lining, slope protection and containment. It can be hung vertically, laid in trenches, or cut and formed into irregular shapes. Unlike regular concrete, Concrete Cloth materials can be installed in the rain and other wet conditions, which virtually eliminates project rescheduling. It has a low alkaline reserve and a low wash rate for a minimal ecological impact.

The material is available in three thicknesses that come in bulk rolls or small portable batch rolls:

  • CC5 – 5 mm
  • CC8 - 8 mm
  • CC13 - 13 mm

The number of square feet per roll of Concrete Cloth® GCCM varies by product. All products may be purchased in bulk rolls for placement efficiency on larger projects. CC5 and CC8 can also be purchased in portable rolls for smaller projects. Portable rolls can easily be handled by two people, which reduces the need for heavy, invasive machinery.

Please refer to the data sheet for more detailed information.
