Cement Blanket is available in thickness: CC10, 10mm. Cement Blanket Hydro, which includes a PVC backing membrane, is also available for hydrocarbon applications.
Cement Blanket is used in a variety of civil infrastructure applications, such as ditch lining, slope protection and capping secondary containment bunds.
Cement Blanket is rapidly becoming the ditch lining material of choice for engineers and contractors around the world. Cement Blanket is typically 10 times faster to install than conventional concrete solutions, with installation speeds of up to 200 m2/hr possible with only a three man crew for a longitudinal layup.
Cement Blanket is increasingly being used as an alternative to non-structural shotcrete to protect slopes from surface erosion caused by weathering, surface run-off and environmental degradation.
In certain applications Cement Blanket can be used as structural slope stabilization by combining it with steel mesh and soils nails (see the Cement Blanket User guide for more details).
Cement Blanket can be used for hard armor capping of earth bunds around petrochemical tank farms, munitions depots and flood defences. Typically installation speeds for bund lining are approximately 800 m2/day with a 6-man crew. Cement Blanket Hydro may also be used in this application。
Cement Blanket can be used as an alternative to brattice cloth, plaster board or concrete block-work to construct blast and vent wall structures for underground mining applications. Trials have shown that Cement Blanket typically provides cost savings of over 20% compared to conventional solutions.
Cement Blanket has been used worldwide as an effective method of preventing surface erosion and scour associated with water run-off from culverts outlets, spillways and over-toppings.
