Before you get any clever ideas, don’t think you’re going to be using this Concrete Cloth developed by UK company Concrete Canvas to make yourself a bullet-proof t-shirt, cause it doesn’t work that way. It’s actually a flexible fabric impregnated with a special pre-mixed cement that hardens when it’s hydrated.
So not only does it make creating irregularly shaped items out of concrete a lot easier, like say shelters, ditches, retaining walls, pond linings and chairs, but unlike a regular concrete mix you can’t use too much water, so it’s idiot-proof as well. In fact, the material will even set underwater in addition to being fireproof and chemical resistant. Has polyester finally met its match?
