CIMTEX-X - Concrete Canvas



CIMTEX®-X has been developed specifically for canal lining and can be rapidly unrolled to line and remediate bulk water infrastructure.

  • Canal lining


CIMTEX®-X has excellent impermeability significantly reducing water seepage losses in applications such as canals, waterways and hydroelectric channels.

CIMTEX®-X consists of two interconnected layers of geotextile that encapsulate a specially formulated dry concrete mix. An LLDPE geomembrane backing ensures the material has very high impermeability. The composite concrete top cover provides a high degree of long-term durability.

CIMTEX®-X can be rapidly unrolled to line and remediate canal infrastructure. It is significantly faster, easier and more cost-effective to install than conventional lining methods. CCX™ can be hydrated either by spraying or by being fully immersed in water.

As a result, CIMTEX®-X is the ideal solution for the lining and remediation of large channels such as irrigation canals, increasing their operational life and reducing water seepage losses.

Two variants of CIMTEX®-X are currently available: 

  • CIMTEX®-X/M for erosion control applications
  • CIMTEX®-X/B for containment critical applications.


CIMTEX®-X products exceed the minimum requirements of ASTM D8364 – Standard Specification for GCCM Materials.

  • Quick and easy to install
  • Product available in man portable rolls for applications with limited access
  • Ready to use solution : the concrete is pre-mixed so there is no need for mixing, measuring or compacting
  • Good drape characteristics and will closely follow the ground profile and fit around existing infrastructure
  • Eco friendly : product is low mass, low carbon technology which uses up to 95 % less material than conventional concrete for many applications
  • The fibre reinforcement prevents cracking, absorbs energy from impacts and provides a stable failure mode
  • Durable product : chemical resistance, weathering performance and UV resistance
  • The PVC backing on one surface ensures that the material has excellent impermeability
