FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS about GRC or GFRC

GFRC: Glass Reinforced Concrete or in short (GRC) is a truly unique material. An environmental friendly products.

GRC is a highly impact-resistant material that has a strength-to-weight ratio that is higher than other materials. AR glass fiber is tensile strength of 3 to 4 times stronger than comparable steel fiber.
Glass Fiber Reinforced Concrete Jali wideli used For Decoration.

Glass Reinforced concrete (GRC) Also called GFRC concrete is a well-known building material to clad because of the variety it can offer and also the fact that it is 80percent lighter than pre-cast Steel Reinforced Concrete cladding.

The difference in GFRC or GRC is insignificant. Both refer to the same substance. The reason why there are two distinct acronyms is due to the various variations on the word “glass fiber”: Glassfibre Reinforced Cement (GRC)

Glass Reinforced Concrete (GRC) is a concrete made from various elements, including fibreglass. This means that it’s more light than concrete, harder than nails, and much more flexible than lubed up contortionist.
GRC or GFRC is made in thin concrete(Silica sand) sections created by a proprietary process of machine spraying an enriched OP cement and aggregate mix within which alkali resistant glass fibres provide the reinforcement.
GFRC: Glass Fiber Reinforced Concrete (GRC) is a unique material and environmentally friendly product.
Waterproof and Fireproof – GFRC can be used in exterior environments. GFRC is resistant to extreme temperatures and won’t pose a threat to your infrastructure. It will even protect your infrastructure in some ways. GFRC is extremely light for its strength and size.
Glassfibre Reinforced Concrete, also known as Glass Fiber Reinforced Concrete or GFRC, is usually manufactured using either the “sprayed”, or the “premixed” process. Premix GRC can be either vibration compacted or made using a self-compacting GRC mixture.
GRC has been tested at the highest fire rating, of A1, and the panels have been used on luxury apartment complexes, including high rises.
GRC Jali and other GFRC Products are handled and completed by industry known experts who have rich industry skill and knowledge. Furthermore, we follow the current market trends in the making of GRC products.
GRC stands for Glassfibre Reinforced Concrete or GFRC (Glassfibre Reinforced Concrete). While GRG (Glass Reinforced Gypsum) is used for interiors, and GRP (Glass Reinforced Plastic) for its versatile uses, GRC is used for exterior building facade panels and as architectural precast concrete.
GRC columns are typically cladded onto concrete columns to create an attractive and decorative element. They can be made in a white smooth or a pigmented finish.
Glass reinforced concrete (GRC), also known as glass-fibre reinforced concrete, is a common construction material used for exterior cladding panels.
GRC has a lower weight, higher impact and tensile strengths than concrete. The structural elements were reinforced with carbon tendons and stainless-steel bars to ensure a corrosion-free material.
GFRC cannot rust like steel. it is a blend of polymers, Plasticizer Bond which makes it to be lightweight, strong, weather resistant, fire retardant, impermeable, and attractive.
The results showed that GRC has a lower environmental impact than traditional precast concrete by as much as 60%
About 1800-1900kg/m3 GRC is light weight and strong: GRC’s bulk density is 1800-1900kg/m3. The standard GRC board weighs only 15 kg. It has a thickness of 8mm. Its compressive strength is greater than 40MPa, and its bending strength is higher than 34Mpa. This is well above the international standards.
GFRC is thin, strong and weighs 75% to 90% more than solid concrete. The structure is lighter and easier to install.
These are used for model projection that crowns as element of doors and windows for instance of a pedestal.

STEP 1: Make an original pattern.

STEP 2: Create a mold of the original pattern.

STEP 3: Make a plastic copy of the pattern to finalize the design (if needed).

STEP 4 – Make a mold of the finalized pattern.

STEP 5: Make Plastic Copies and Assemble Larger Patterns.

Weight/Thickness: as thin as 1″ (we can cast concrete tile as thin as 0.25″ – 0.5″).
GRC / GFRC surfaces can be painted. A variety of penetrative stains and proprietary paints are available on the market that can be used to enhance the appearance of a GRC / GFRC item.
Fibre-reinforced plastic (FRP; also called fibre-reinforced polymer, it is a composite material made of a polymer matrix reinforced with fibres.

Glass-fiber reinforced concrete (GRC) is a material made of a cementitious matrix composed of cement, sand, water and admixtures, in which short length glass fibers are dispersed. 

GFRC is not an expensive material, owing to its high production and labor costs.

GFRC is both waterproof and fireproof

Lighter weight: With GFRC, concrete can be cast in thinner sections and is therefore as much as 75% lighter than similar pieces cast with traditional concrete.

GFRC is strong and flexible, and because of this, concrete pieces made with it can be thinner, which makes them much lighter than thicker conventional reinforced concrete. Also, because GFRC has its reinforcing mixed in, it makes it more strong and durable.

GRC are mainly used in exterior building façade panels and as architectural precast concrete.

3%

We recommend 3% of the total weight of your mix should be added in glass fibres.

GRC Planter Boxes made with Commercial Grade Glass Reinforced Concrete specifically engineered for use in high end commercial landscaping and architectural projects and developments.
A typical GFRC mix design will be 125-130 lbs per cubic foot. This equates to 7-8 lbs/ft2 at ¾” thick and 10-11 lbs/ft2 at 1” thick. Panelized GFRC, incorporating a steel stud frame, can weigh 10-25 lbs/ft2, depending on frame configuration.

Glass Reinforced Concrete (GRC), also known as GFRC concrete, is a popular building material for cladding due to the versatility it offers and the fact it is around 80% lighter than pre-cast steel reinforced concrete cladding.
