GFRG (Glass Fiber Reenforced Gypsum)
Glass Fiber Reinforced Gypsum is a composite of high strength gypsum reinforced with glassfibers that can be factory molded into any physically conceivable shape or size. Primarily for interior use and installed and finished using a paint/drywall contractor. Typically weighs between 2-3lbs/ft² and is non-combustible.
Why GFRG is Superior To Traditional Castings and Materials
Glass Fiber Reinforced Gypsum (GFRG) is a cost-effective solution that outshines traditional plaster castings with its versatile applications. GFRG is lighter than traditional gypsum and can be formed to a better detail:
Advantages: Low Maintenance, Sturdy, and Long Lasting
MORE CASTING SOLUTIONS
On top of GFRG, we also provide GFRC casting
Both Glass Fiber Reinforced Gypsum (GFRG) and Glass Fiber Reinforced Concrete (GFRC) are materials used in the construction industry for their strength and lightness compared to traditional materials, and both of them incorporate glass fibers to enhance their properties. However, they do have several key differences due to the different base materials used. GFRG is typically used for interior applications, as it is not designed to withstand weathering. It’s commonly used for decorative elements such as cornices, columns, moldings, and ceiling domes.
GFRC (Glass Fiber Reinforced Concrete)
- GFRC uses a mixture of cement, sand, water, and glass fibers.
- Stronger than traditional concrete due to the incorporated glass fibers. It’s also lighter in weight, which makes it easier and more cost-effective to install.
- Can be used both indoors and outdoors, and is more resistant to weathering and moisture than GFRG.
- Commonly used for exterior architectural products like panels, facade cladding, decorative shapes, and outdoor furniture.
- Can also be used to create realistic faux-stone or other textures, as it can be dyed and molded into a variety of shapes and appearances.
While both GFRG and GFRC involve the use of glass fibers for reinforcement, they differ in their base materials (gypsum vs concrete), their weather resistance (GFRC being more resistant), and typical applications (GFRG more for interiors, GFRC for both interiors and exteriors). The choice between the two will depend on the specific requirements of the project at hand.
