Concrete cloth (CC) is an innovative technology that combines flexibility of geotextile fabric with durability of hardened concrete. It is composed of dry concrete mix, reinforcing fiber matrix, fabric top surface, and PVC bottom coating. A hardened concrete cloth is thin and durable which has many applications.

Concrete cloth :
With reference to the above mention topic, I already uploaded the image of concrete cloth, please refer it to understand the concept deeply.
Concrete mainly include the following materials :
Definition of concrete cloth :
The concrete cloth is an oval building construction material which is made up from a flexible aluminate cement powder impregnated fabric
The speciality of concrete cloth :
it hardens quickly because a higher rate of hydration
The main purpose of concrete cloth :
An interesting fact about concrete cloth related to history :
The concrete cloth was developed by a British Engineering Company called concrete Canvas.
I hope so you satisfied with my answer, Thank you.
Hi amr Soliman,
Concrete cloth has a wide range of applications in building and in the construction industry.
Application of concrete cloth:
Here I am mainly focusing all the applications of concrete cloth, have a look;
I would like to add more technical information. A concrete cloth or concrete canvas is a material developed by the British Engineering Company. This is a special type of material that makes it flexible to use and has all the properties of concrete. It’s has a vast scope of applications such as a slope protection construction, used in mining overlaying and underground pipelines, used in agricultural mill and military applications. in technical terms, the concrete cloth is a three-dimensional fibre matrix that contains a mix of dry concrete with a back surface is coated by a PVC material and on the other surface by a cloth to make it waterproof. Uses of hydrophilic fibers on the opposite surface which are support the hydration by Praveen water into the cement. The canvas materials which are covered can be hydrated by spring or it may be immersed in water for curing.
Concrete cloth is a unique proprietary material. It has a very wide range of applications throughout the building and civil engineering industry. CC is a flexible; cement impregnated fabric that hardens when hydrated to form a thin, durable, water and fire proof concrete layer. CC allows concrete construction without the need for plant or mixing equipment. It has a designed life of 10 years. It is significantly quicker and less expensive to install.
