Glass Reinforced Concrete (GRC) is a combination of specially developed Alkali Resistant (AR) glass fibres and cement sand mortar.
The resultant composite is a concrete like material combining the compressive properties of cement mortars with the valuable flexural and tensile strength of the glass fibres.
It is in many ways similar to concrete but its higher cement
content and lower permeability make it more resistant to
moisture penetration, atmospheric attack or sand erosion.
The high cement and low aggregate content also result in
higher moisture movement than concrete, although
thermal movement is similar.
GRC was originally pioneered by the U.K. Building Research Establishment in the early 1970's. This environment-friendly composite using natural raw material is transformed into a great variety of products.
Due to its flexibility to meet performance, appearance and cost parameters, GRC products are popular among designers, architects, engineers and end users.
GRC is a material which today is making a significant contribution to the industry worldwide.
