Glass Fiber Reinforced Concrete (GRC)

Glass Fiber Reinforced Concrete, or what is commonly known as GRC, is a composite cement/ sand matrix that uses glass fibers, for reinforcement, instead of steel. The glass fibers effectively reinforce the mortar mix thereby improving its tensile and flexural characteristics. Glass fibers can be incorporated into a matrix either in continuous or discontinuous chopped lengths.

Glass Fiber Reinforced Concrete is one of the most versatile building materials available to architects and engineers, due to its light weight, making it easier to handle on site and reducing loads on structures when in use. The unique properties of GRC allow the manufacture of thinner wall products that are not achievable in precast concrete or natural stone.

GRC can be molded into a wide variety of complex shapes and profiles, and is ideally suited to the popular fast-track approach of using lightweight, prefabricated architectural products, such as: wall panels, window surrounds, column covers, soffits, cornices, brackets, quoins, railings, pilasters, copings, domes, site furnishings, planters, bollards, urns, and tables. It can be produced in varies colors and surface textures.
