Burdens Australia, Australia's leading specialist in supply and installation of Geosynthetic Cementitious Composite Mats, has signed a long term exclusive distributor agreement with Cortex Composites Australia for the Australasian market. The deal strengthens Burdens' product offering in soil stabilisation, ditch lining and petrochemical bund lining sector.
Cortex is essentially a thin cement-embedded composite, supplied in rolls described as 'concrete in a roll'. It is a fabric-like material until hydrated, which then hardens into a durable concrete layer. Less Cortex by weight is needed to satisfy application requirements, and therefore it is better for environment by reducing overall concrete use, providing carbon savings of over 50 per cent when substituting for traditional concrete.
Burdens has identified Cortex as providing significant advantages in the GCCM material class. The agreement, signed by Paul Johnson, managing director of Burdens Australia, and Curren Krasnoff, CEO of Cortex Composites, gives Burdens an increased product portfolio to complement its growing geosynthetic product offering and brings to the region a GCCM material for use in a range of infrastructure applications.
Paul Johnson commented that "Cortex offers performance on par with traditional concrete, with less cost and faster installation and is a great addition to our growing innovative product range".
Curren Krasnoff, who is listed in Forbes 2017, '30 Under 30' for manufacturing and industry awards, said, "We are lucky to have an experienced partner on the ground in Australia that is not only able to sell and install this product but provide the knowledge necessary to support our customers' requirements."
Burdens Australia has been involved in the sales, marketing and installation support of GCCM's, the revolutionary new class of material, across Australia since 2008.
Cortex Composites Australia designs and manufactures the proprietary rollable cement product which has been classified as a geosynthetic cementitious composite mat or GCCM. (SV)
