Concrete Canvas By: Mauktik Dave What is it? Concrete Canvas is flexible cement fabric that hardens on hydration to form a thin, durable water proof and fire proof concrete layer. In simple terms, it's concrete in a bag and all you need to add it water. It is available in three different thicknesses, 5mm, 8mm and 13mm. It comes in man-portable rolls. Who Invented It Peter Brewin and William Crawford created the Concrete Canvas at Imperial College London in 2004. They created the canvas with various materials. Concrete Canvas Ltd. was made in the U.K. in 2005 to promote Concrete Canvases worldwide. The company creates the canvases at a fast rate. To buy the product, you must place an order in South Wales. Environmental Safety Concrete Canvases cannot be degradable in ultraviolet light. It can be used in warm or cold environments. Concrete Canvases can reduce Co2 by 90%. It doesn't grow bacteria and moss inside the canvas. The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) approves of Concrete Canvases in most cases. The canvas has a low wash out rate compared to many other cements. Also, it has low mass and carbon technology. Concrete Canvas Shelters Concrete Shelters are rapid hardening shelters that only need water and air. To build it you need two people. One person adds water and air, while the other person stretches the shelter out. Within a day, the shelters are dry and ready to use. There are two sizes of shelters, 25 sq.ft. and 50 sq. ft. The uses range from civil and military sectors to disaster relief. The shelter has a large insulation mass. It is fire and water safe and has secure doors. Future What Could Happen in 20 years??? The future of Concrete Canvases are bright. The military can use Concrete Canvas Shelters for training camps. Homeless people would have shelter. If a natural disaster happened, then they would have shelter also. Scientists can use it for shelter in different ecosystems. Concrete Canvases can have many uses in the future. Concrete Cloth Concrete Cloth is like a Concrete Canvas, but it's more flexible and thinner. It can be used for ditch lining, slope stabilization, pipeline protection, roofing, foundation blinding, water tanks, flood defenses, , tunnel lining and more. It is stored in a packaging that's away from light. It can easily be cut before hydration (unlike the canvas). It is found in large rolls for big projects. Concrete Canvas Usage Concrete Canvases can be used for many things. The canvas can be used in small squares or a big pieces. Small squares can be used to cover small materials and things. Big pieces can be used to make shelters, foundation lining, slope protection, ditch lining, emergency homing, and more. The company is also finding more usages to the canvas. Procedure First, order a pack to your needs. Concrete Canvas Ltd. can be reached in the U.K., U.S.A., and Canada. Next, store in a cool location away from sunlight. When you want to use it, follow the directions to the specified product. Though the products are different, all of them need water, sun, and air. Within a day, it is solid hard.
