Concrete has been a cornerstone of civil engineering projects for years now. The major benefit with concrete is that it is incredibly flexible in the variety of projects it can be used for. While concrete has gone through some evolution over its history, it has remained relatively consistent. Despite the benefits, there are some issues with traditional concrete which can be overcome through a new concrete solution.
GCCMs, or Geosynthetic Cementitious Composite Mats, have been developed by UK company Concrete Canvas. In contrast to traditional concrete, GCCMs are a fabric filled with a dry concrete mix which is activated through hydrated. Once left to dry, the fabric will form a rigid concrete layer.
