Disruptive Innovation Leads to Roll out Concrete
Coretex Composites have completely rethought how concrete is installed, developing a cement alternative that is fast and cheaper to install than traditional concrete.
Their patented rollout concrete system is comprised of four layers. 1) a water proof membrane backing, 2) a framework of 3D reinforcing matting, 3) a custom cement mix and finally a water soluble top layer. The system enables the concrete to be rolled and removes the need for expensive cement trucks for projects which may only require a thin layer of cement, such as canal beds or erosion control. Once the roll is in place is simply wet to dissolve the top layer and activate the cement.
Could this innovation have application in your industry? The company currently have distributors worldwide, but no identified partner in NZ.
