GFRC (Glass Fiber Reenforced Concrete)

Precast concrete that provides the strength and durability of concrete at a fraction of the weight. The distinct strength of GFRC derives from the incorporated glass fibers. These alkali-resistant fibers serve as the primary bearer of tensile loads, while the combined polymer and concrete matrix interconnect the fibers, facilitating load redistribution from one fiber to the next.

Information about GFRC

GFRC (Glass Fiber Reenforced Concrete)is a strong, lightweight, and versatile material that’s widely used in construction for a variety of applications. It has many advantages over traditional concrete, including enhanced strength and durability, design flexibility, and lower environmental impact.


Enhanced by Acrylic Polymers

GFRC is primarily composed of a cementitious matrix, which includes cement, sand, water, and admixtures, reinforced with alkali-resistant glass fibers. The fibers used are typically short, randomly dispersed throughout the material, and make up a small proportion of the overall volume, but they significantly enhance the material’s performance.


Lighter Product

One of the key advantages of GFRC is its light weight compared to traditional concrete. The glass fibers allow for a lower quantity of concrete to be used without sacrificing strength, resulting in a lighter product that is easier and less costly to transport and install.

Lower Environmental Impact

GFRC is generally considered to have a lower environmental impact than traditional concrete. This is due in part to its lighter weight, which reduces the energy required for transportation, and its durability, which leads to a longer lifespan and fewer replacements.


Easier Shipping and Installation

GFRC can be made in a factory and then shipped to the site, or it can be cast in place, depending on the requirements of the specific project. The fact that it is lighter than traditional concrete also makes it easier to handle and install.


Strength and Durability

GFRC has a higher flexural, tensile, and impact strength compared to traditional concrete. This means that it can better resist bending, tensile forces, and impacts, making it less likely to crack under these types of stresses. The alkali-resistant glass fibers help to prevent corrosion, contributing to GFRC’s durability.


On top of GFRC, we also provide polyurethane casting

Expanding Polyurethane and Modified Glass Fiber Reinforced Gypsum (Modified GFRG) are materials utilized in the construction industry. Both are praised for their lightness and adaptability, but they possess unique properties and applications due to their distinct compositions.

Expanded Polyurethane

  • Expanding polyurethane is a lightweight foam formed from a two-part liquid mixture that expands and hardens. It features a density of 8lb per cubic foot, which makes it easy to transport and install.
  • The malleability of polyurethane allows it to be molded into complex shapes and designs, ideal for lightweight products such as corbels, shutters, and vent covers.
  • The malleability of polyurethane allows it to be molded into complex shapes and designs, ideal for lightweight products such as corbels, shutters, and vent covers.
  • To enhance durability and aesthetic appeal, polyurethane elements can be finished with materials like stucco.


While both GFRC and Expanding Polyurethane utilize innovative technology for construction, they differ in their base materials (concrete vs polyurethane foam), their structural applications (GFRC being suitable for load-bearing elements while polyurethane is more suited for non-structural elements), and their molding capabilities (both can be molded, but polyurethane’s lightweight nature allows for more intricate designs).
