What is GFRC?

GFRC stands for Glass Fiber Reinforced Concrete.  It is a composite comprised of Portland cement, fine aggregate, water, acrylic co-polymer, alkali resistant glass fiber reinforcement and additives.  In many international markets, it is referred to as GRC – Glassfibre Reinforced Concrete.  The glass fibers reinforce the concrete, much as steel reinforcing does in conventional concrete.  The glass fiber reinforcement results in a product with much higher flexural and tensile strengths than normal concrete, allowing its use in thin-wall casting applications.  GFRC is a lightweight, durable material that can be cast into nearly unlimited shapes, colors and textures.  There are two basic processes used to fabricate GFRC – The Spray-Up process and Premix process.
