About GFRC

GFRC (glass fibre reinforced concrete) is a specialised form of reinforced concrete made by combining a mixture of fine sand, cement, polymer, water and alkali-resistant (AR) glass fibres. The glass fibres used in GFRC help give this unique compound its strength. The fibres act as the principle tensile load carrying member while the polymer and concrete matrix binds the fibres together acting as a load transfer medium between the fibres.

 

Available in virtually any colour and in a multitude of finishes, this innovative and environmentally friendly composite breeds a new realm of possibilities for the architectural and interior design community. GFRC has been specifically engineered to outperform traditional concrete, natural stone and other composite materials. Some of its benefits can be seen below:

Food Safe

All of our products have been tested for suitability within both domestic and commercial catering environments.

Stain Resistant Icon
Stain Resistant

Specialist sealers help to provide our concrete with excellent stain resistant properties.

Scratch Resistant Icon
Scratch Resistant

Our products have excellent scratch resistant properties withstanding most forms of minor scratching.

Heat Resistant Icon
Heat Resistant

The sealers used to treat our concrete can withstand temperatures of up to 250°C without fear of burning, scorching or cracking.

High Strength Icon
High Strength

Glass fibres give GFRC concrete extremely high compressive, flexural and tensile strength.

Non-Porous
Non-Porous Icon

Our sealers provide an invisible non-porous barrier which prevents liquids from penetrating the surface of the concrete.

Colour Chart Icon
60+ Colours

Virtually any colour can be produced by mixing varying quantities of different pigments. We offer a standard range of over 60 colours and shades.

Eco Friendly Icon
Eco Friendly

Using low energy consumption and reduced levels of CO2 emissions, processed waste ingredients are transformed into an ecological material.

UV Resistant Icon
UV Resistant

Our sealers are highly resistant to ultra violet (UV) light and will not fade or degrade over time making it perfect for both indoor and outdoor applications.

Thickness Icon
>17mm Thicknesses

GFRC obtains peak strength at 17mm in thicknesses. Greater thicknesses can be achieved, depending on application requirements, the desired design and effect.

Feather Icon
Lightweight

Although the relative density is similar to concrete, GFRC products can be made much thinner than traditional concrete, making them lighter without any loss in strength.

Stars Icon
Satin or Gloss

Various processing techniques can be employed to obtain a variety of distinctive surface finishes and different sealers can be used to achieve varying levels of surface sheen.
