Concrete canvas (CC) is flexible, Concrete Impregnated fabric Hardens when hydrated to form a thin, durable, water proof & Fire resistant concrete layer. CC allows concrete construction without the need for plant or mixing equipment. Simply position the flexible canvas & just add water to take that shape as concrete.
It’s typical usages in open cast mining is for Overburden side drainages,coal storage heap, Retaining wall, Road side drainages, also the dumping of the coal can be done after installation of CC to avoid the further losses of bottom layer due to mixing in sand and water(residual).
Also usages in underground mines in air vent wall, ballast wall, land slopes stabilisation, minor seapages, soft soil stabilization, landslides, Land fill over-burden stabilization, water body bank stabilization, underwater slopes stabilization, drainages, etc. etc.
