Balcony, Curved

Textile concrete is flexible. Below, CemPly # 4® is shown flexing under its own weight.

A textile concrete moulding is delivered straight; a flange along its top edge keeps it straight.

At the top of the picture below, a CemPly® moulding is used straight. Note the neat mitred corners, easy to achieve on site, with a little mortar mix.

Textile concrete fixed to a (curved) balcony

On the balcony the top flange has been notched, so that the moulding will flex and conform to the required curvature. The moulding replaces wet plaster work on site; the plastering is still needed to undertake the installation of the moulding.

Any method of fixing can be used, including a cement mortar mix. Evenly spaced micro-cracking of the cement matrix of the moulding occurs. Painting fills the micro-cracks, and environmentally friendly water paints are used on textile concrete.

Carricrete/CemFil/Netcem/CemForce/BondTex are stepping stones on a 40 year path, that extended back 50 years to propylene being condensed into polypropylene. In 1994 it was announced that following two takeovers the Retiflex plant would close; this would have created a vacuum in the South African mining industry. The bonds can be made inline, on looms, knitting machine, or simple lay-up on ultrasonic bonding machines.
