Concrete Cloth sews up ditch-lining solution

Concrete Cloth GCCM (Geosynthetic Cementitious Composite Mat) proves its mettle in the Myra Falls Ditch Lining project, where engineers have upgraded storm water diversion infrastructure for a Vancouver Island zinc and copper mine. The challenging installation covers 11,125 square meters of a material equal to high water velocities (> 18 meters per second) and profile variances to accommodate the remote terrain. A flexible, cement-impregnated fabric that hardens on hydration to form a thin, durable, waterproof and fireproof layer, Concrete Cloth also lends itself to ease of repair in a remote location if future damage should occur due to falling trees or boulders from the hillside above the ditch.
