Today¡¦s GRC for Architects and Engineers
Glassfibre Reinforced Concrete (GRC) is a material that is making a
significant contribution to the economics, technology and aesthetics
of the construction industry worldwide
Glassfibre Reinforced Concrete (GRC*) is one of the most versatile
building materials available to architects and engineers.
Developed in the twentieth century, GRC has been making a
significant contribution to the economics, technology, and
aesthetics of modern construction worldwide for over 30 years.
GRC is not a single material but a family of high-performance
cement-based composites reinforced with special alkali resistant
glass fibers, which can be engineered to suit a wide range of
GRC products can be formed into sections as thin as 6 mm (1/4 inch)
so their weight is much less than traditional precast concrete
The design and manufacture of GRC products is covered by
international standards, which have been developed in Europe,
America, Asia and Australasia.
GRC is manufactured in over 100 countries.
