Geosynthetic Cementitious Composite Barrier – CC Hydro™
Concrete Impregnated Containment
Titan is proud to offer CC Hydro™ Geosynthetic Cementitious Composite Barrier (GCCB), the world’s first all-in-one armored impermeable liner for containment applications. Produced by Concrete Canvas® Ltd. and a sister product of Concrete Canvas® (CC), CC Hydro™ combines Concrete Canvas® concrete impregnated fabric technology with a high impermeable, chemically resistant geomembrane backing. The geomembrane provides a high-performance barrier lining with a testable joint for quality assured containment applications.
CCH is available in 5mm and 8mm thicknesses: CCHT1™ and CCHT2™ respectively.
The liner incorporates a hi-visibility welding strip allowing joints to be thermally welded providing an air channel for on-site testing. The flexible concrete-filled geosynthetic, hardens on hydration, to provide long-term protection to the geomembrane from puncture, abrasion, weathering, and UV degradation. This hard armor concrete surface effectively eliminates the need for concrete, soil, or aggregate top cover, normally required with conventional liner systems.
CC Hydro™ Benefits
- All-In-One Solution – Combines the impermeability of a containment liner with the hard armour protection and durability of concrete, reducing install times and simplifying logistics.
- No Top Cover Required – Does not require a protective top cover. This removes the need for additional excavation, the treatment of contaminated arisings and the import of costly fill material.
- Maintains Volume Capacity – Can be laid directly onto existing profiles without loss of volume capacity for refurbishment projects, providing significant overall time and cost savings.
- Reduced Life-Cycle Costs – Provides effective weed suppression eliminating the ongoing maintenance cost of soil covered systems. CC Hydro™ also reduces the end-of-life costs associated with the treatment of any contaminated top cover.
CC Hydro™ Features
- High Impermeability – Has excellent impermeability and has been independently tested to BS-EN-1377 to have a hydraulic conductivity better than 1×10-12 m/s.
- Durable – Has a hard armour surface, protecting the geomembrane liner from puncture, abrasion, weathering, burrowing animals and UV degradation.
- Chemical Resistance – Excellent resistance to a wide range of chemical reagents, including hydrocarbons, digestates and acidic leachates.
- Testable Joints – Incorporates a high-visibility welding strip, allowing the joint to be thermally welded with a double-track or triple-track air channel for fast and simple on-site pressure testing and quality assurance.
CC Hydro™ Applications
- Bund Lining – Can be used to provide a durable, chemically resistant, high impermeability liner for secondary containment applications. Combining the flexibility of a geomembrane with the hard armour protection of concrete, CC Hydro ™can be used for bund and berm lining across a wide range of sectors including petrochemical, anaerobic digestion and mine tailings. Concrete Canvas Ltd currently supply 7 out of the top 10 oil and gas operators worldwide.
- Channel Lining – CC Hydro™ is rapidly unrolled to provide a high impermeability channel, flume or canal lining for drainage, irrigation or hydroelectric schemes; providing flow characteristics similar to smooth concrete (manning’s = 0.011) and abrasion resistance of approximately 7.5x greater than a 17MPa OPC concrete.
- Lagoon & Canal Lining – Provides a cost-effective primary containment solution for lagoon and canal lining (for example, river diversions); providing excellent puncture resistance, UV protection and long-term durability.
- Other – CC Hydro™ can be used for a wide range of containment applications, whether it be new-build or the remediation of existing infrastructure, for example, storage tank baselining.
