Glass Fiber Reinforced Concrete (GFRC) is a composite material, based on cement and other hydraulic binders, reinforced with alkali resistant inorganic fibers, combined with additives that regulate the binding time, water-cement factor, density, plasticity, shrinkage, depending on the requirements for the finished product and for the application technique.
The technology was developed in the 20's of the last century by developing cement-based composites, reinforced with mineral fibers. It was used as thermal and acoustic barrier. During the 60's and 70's GFRC is used widely as a tough, elastic and non-combustible material in the fabrication of steel structures in high construction, applied on metal columns, beams, floors, etc.
Today GFRC is made out of alkali-resistant glass fibers (AR Glass), hydraulic binders, silicate fillers and other additives, which make the material strong, elastic, resistant to air erosion and ultraviolet light
GFRC allows fabrication of products several times lighter than those produced by ordinary concrete, because they actually are a robust thin shell (usually about 15 millimeters), hollow inside.
Depending on the product designation and its required mechanical features various techniques of fabrication can be applied.
GFRC Goods and Objects, realized with our materials, can be found here:
Architecture and building restoration- to develop forms and elements for the interior or exterior, imitating architectural styles or construction techniques or materials (wood, marble, stone); for reproduction of friezes and capitals.
Construction - for the facade cladding; reinforced concrete modules for high construction.
Manufacturing of park and garden furniture - benches, flower pots, waterfalls, fountains, artificial rocks.
