What is CC Hydro™

CC Hydro™ is a revolutionary new containment product from Concrete Canvas Ltd. It combines the company’s concrete impregnated fabric technology with a high impermeability, chemically resistant geomembrane backing. The geomembrane provides a high performance liner with a testable joint for quality assured containment applications. The liner incorporates a hi-visibility welding strip allowing joints to be thermally bonded with a twintrack air channel for on-site testing.
The flexible concrete impregnated fabric, hardens on hydration, to provide long term protection to the geomembrane from puncture, abrasion, weathering and UV degradation. This hard armor concrete surface effectively removes the need for concrete, soil or aggregate top cover, normally required with conventional liner systems. CC Hydro™ is available in 2 thicknesses; CCH5™ and CCH8™ (5 and 8mm) for a wide range of containment applications.

Case Study

CC Hydro Case Study

In October 2015, CC Hydro™ was used to line a secondary containment bund at an anaerobic digestion facility in Norfolk, UK. The green energy scheme produces 1.2 megawatts of energy an hour from hops and other farm waste. The project brief was to provide a secondary containment method that would prevent any of the tank contents from infiltrating the groundwater should there be a tank failure. Conventional berm lining methods were considered, however CC Hydro™ offered an environmentally friendly, fast and cost effective install. In challenging weather conditions and areas of limited access, the entirety of the 1250sqm of CC Hydro™ was installed onto the berm face over a six day period by a crew of 4 operators.

CC Hydro™ User Benefits

All-In-One Solution
CC Hydro™ 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
CC Hydro™ does not require a protective top cover. This removes the need for additional excavation, the treatment of contaminated soil and the import of costly fill material.
Maintains Volume Capacity
CC Hydro™ 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
CC Hydro™ provides effective weed suppression eliminating the ongoing maintenance cost of soil covered systems. CC Hydro™ also reduces the end-of-life costs associated with treatment of any contaminated top cover.

CC Hydro™ Key Characteristics

High Impermeability
CC Hydro™ has excellent impermeability and has been independently tested to BS-EN-1377 to have a hydraulic conductivity better than 1x10-12 m/s.
CC Hydro™ has a hard armor surface, protecting the geomembrane liner from puncture, abrasion, weathering, burrowing animals and UV degradation.
Chemical Resistance
CC Hydro™ has been shown to have excellent resistance to a wide range of chemical reagents, including hydrocarbons, digestates and acidic leachates.
Testable Joints
CC Hydro™ incorporates a high-visibility welding strip, allowing the joint to be thermally bonded with a twin-track air channel for fast and simple on-site pressure testing.
