GFRC Laminates The most common form in which fiber-reinforced (GFRC) composites are used in structural application is called a laminate. It is obtained by stacking a number of thin layers of fibers and matrix and consolidating them into the desired thickness. The … Continue reading
GFRC Composition 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 … Continue reading
Why are Contractors, Architects and Designers going with GFRC? There are plenty of reasons you should consider using GFRC (Glass Fiber Reinforced Concrete) when considering a material that is light, strong, weather resistant, attractive and fire retardant material is required. … Continue reading
Basically, GFRC is an ultra-strong composite made of Portland cement infused with randomly dispersed glass fibers that reinforce the concrete and increase its load-bearing capacity.
Some design considerations that may affect the cost of GFRC used in your project: The amount of detail. Number of repetitive pieces of glass fiber reinforcedconcrete. (Numerous casts of a GFRC shapes are more economical per piece, than one-time only … Continue reading
