Concrete Canvas Ltd. has upgraded its Geosynthetic Cementitious Composite Mats (GCCMs) – (CC5, CC8, CC13) to a new, lower carbon T-series product line (CCT1, CCT2, CCT3) for lower carbon, higher performance aligned with ASTM D8364. These products are the first GCCMs to meet this International Specification Standard for GCCMs. The new T-series product range (CCT1, CCT2, CCT3) is engineered to align with the ASTM classification levels (Type I, II, III) to make specifying the right product even easier. Using the ASTM Specification Standard helps protect specifiers and customers and ensures they get the right product for the right application.
The new product range was developed to have a significantly reduced environmental footprint than standard CC to deliver even higher performance. The new T-series has 33% less embodied carbon than standard CC, providing more than 60% savings when used to replace conventional poured concrete for erosion control applications. The company is working hard to reduce its environmental footprint, and by replacing conventional concrete solutions, its products sold to date are estimated to have saved over 3000T of CO2e emissions globally. They say the T-series will build on this legacy at an accelerated pace.
The new T-series has 25% higher abrasion resistance providing longer-lasting protection in erosion control applications. With a wear rate which is five times lower than ST4 concrete, the new T-series will continue as the company’s ideal choice for channel lining and slope protection applications.
As part of this upgrade there will be a few changes to the product’s physical dimensions, which are designed to economize transport logistics while maintaining higher product performance. A full set of updated literature for the new series can be accessed on the Concrete Canvas website here.
