Abstract: Present generation is having a huge demand for construction materials to follow different conventional methods due to a rapid increase in the materials widely used in construction & it also needs an enormous amount of economical investments on materials. There is no provision for very rapid and emergency workable concrete installation methods. Concrete as construction material is recognized globally but the inquest to improve its flexibility has always attracted the attention of researchers. As there are many advantages of concrete but one thing makes it inefficient i.e., it isn’t flexible when hardened. The increasing cost of repair work due to weathering actions, ground surface damage, seepage in water canals always remained a concern. A new technique has developed called concrete cloth which makes the defects free from concrete & which is flexible and easy to use. CC has a ceramic nature that makes it fire resistant and water proof.
Keyword: Concrete cloth, GGBS (Ground Granulated Blast Furnace Slag), Hydrophilic Sheet, Air Mesh, Seepage, Flexible and Fire Resistant.
