Glass Fiber Reinforce Concrete/ GFRC/ GRC
Glass Fiber Reinforced Concrete (GFRC) is a proven engineered composite building material consisting of Portland cement, aggregate, color pigments, and glass fiber reinforcement. The glass fibers reinforce the concrete, much as steel reinforcing bars do in conventional construction. The glass fiber reinforcement results in a product with much higher flexural strength than normal concrete, allowing its use in thin-wall casting applications.
SMART GFRC is manufactured using state-of-art technology as per site requirement with or without a steel frame backing. GFRC is commonly used in low-rise exterior facades for applications such as panels or other architectural elements (which are generally cast to an installation friendly maximum size of 4′ x 6′)
SMART GFRC which is produced to a weight of +/- 4 Kg per square foot (or 43 kg/m2) is a lightweight substitute for stone given its nominal 20 mm thickness and the absence of steel anchors. It can be used in either new construction or renovation of existing structures. Depending on the application, GFRC components allow for a variety of installation methods including construction adhesive and mechanical fastening.
