Why you would choose GFRC for your next project.
GFRC – A typical mix with 5% glass fiber has a compressive strength of 6,000 to 8,000 psi.
EIFS – Typically has a compressive strength of 15 psi
GFRC is 400 – 500 times stronger than EIFS
Fire Tests: ASTM E84
GFRC : Flame Spread Rating = 0 (less than 5 smoke density)
EIFS : Flame Spread Rating = 2 (Smoke developed = 6)
GFRC: earned an “excellent” rating in freeze thaw resistance after withstanding over 300 rapid freeze thaw cycles considered to be the equivalent of 100 or more North East winters.
EIFS: No failure of the lamina after 10 cycles freeze-thaw
