General information about Glass Fiber Reinforced Concrete (GFRC).

GFRC Panels

GFRC Panels Glass Fiber Reinforced Concrete (GFRC) – Is one of the most innovative construction materials available today. GFRC (Glass Fiber Reinforced Concrete) facilitates unprecedented opportunities for building design. GFRC is a portland cement based composite with alkaliresistant glass fiber, randomly dispersed throughout the product. Because the glass fiber adds flexural, tensile and impact strengths, the … Continue reading
