GFRC – Glass fiber reinforced composite materials consist of high strength glass fiber embedded in a
cementitious matrix. In this form, both fibers and matrix retain their physical and chemical identities, yet they produce a combination of properties that cannot be achieved with either of the components
acting alone. In general fibers are the principal load-carrying members, while the surrounding matrix
keeps them in the desired locations and orientation, acting as a load transfer medium between them,
and protects them from environmental damage. In fact, the fibers provide reinforcement for the matrix
and other useful functions in fiber-reinforced composite materials. Glass fibers can be incorporated into
a matrix either in continuous lengths or in discontinuous (chopped) lengths.
