All products are manufactured at the company’s HQ in South Wales, where it exports to 80+ countries.

Some of our customers include Scottish Water, Anglian Water, Severn Trent Water, South West Water, the Environment Agency, Mott MacDonald and Costain. CC is a flexible cement impregnated fabric that hardens on hydration to form a thin, durable, water proof and fire proof concrete layer, allowing concrete to be used in a completely new way. There is no need for mixing or measuring; the concrete is premixed and cannot be over hydrated and will set underwater and in sea water. CC is a low mass, low carbon geo-textile technology which uses up to 95% less material than conventional concrete for many applications. It is chemically resistant, has good weathering performance and will not degrade in UV light, with a design life of over 50 years.
