Titan Environmental Containment has been one of the most active participants in North America’s geosynthetics market in recent years, developing new materials, adding offices, and signing a number of expansion-oriented agreements. On April 20, they announced a continuation of that success story with reconfirming their exclusive deal with Concrete Canvas®.
The companies have both confirmed that they have agreed to a new three-year Canadian distribution agreement which continues to make Titan the exclusive distributor for Concrete Canvas® (CC) GCCM products in Canada. The original agreement between the companies was signed in 2019.
The deal extends beyond Canada, too. The companies also announced the expansion of Titan’s distribution of CC into the United States through their subsidiaries, Titan Environmental USA and Concrete Canvas USA. This expansion comes with an additional agreement granting Titan exclusive distribution rights for Concrete Canvas® throughout the states of California, Nevada, and Arizona. Furthermore, Titan was awarded exclusivity of Concrete Canvas® distribution in the mining sector in the Western United States, including New Mexico, Colorado, Oregon, Washington, Idaho, Utah, and Montana.
TITAN & GCCMS
Geosynthetic Cementitious Composite Mat products involve a flexible, concrete-impregnated fabric that hardens on hydration to form a thin, durable, waterproof and fire-resistant concrete layer. This allows for concrete barrier construction without the need for plant or mixing equipment.
CC consists of a 3-dimensional fiber matrix containing a specially formulated dry concrete mix. A PVC backing on one surface of the CC ensures the material has excellent impermeability. CC can be hydrated either by spraying or by being fully immersed in water. Once set, the fibers reinforce the concrete, preventing crack propagation and providing a safe plastic failure mode.
The versatility of the product, its speed of installation, and low logistical footprint have helped it become adopted internationally for bund lining, slope protection, weed suppression, remediation of concrete infrastructure, mining channels, and more. The lining system is distributed to more than 80 countries now.
