GFRC Concrete Supplies Sydney
GRFC stands for glass fibre reinforced concrete and it has become very popular in a number of projects lately. The material has been around since the 1940s but the old GRFC wasn’t as resilient and durable as the products available in the market today. The glass fibres couldn’t withstand the high-alkaline environment within the concrete and degraded eventually. The technology has improved considerably since then and alkaline-resistant glass fibres are now used in GRFC.
How Does It Work?
The concept behind this is simple. Concrete isn’t very resilient and durable without some reinforcement installed within it. In construction, people pour concrete over metal rebar and rods to make the installation stronger & durabe. Glass fibre is just another material used for reinforcement to ensure the concrete is strong enough to withstand weight and pressure. The combination of glass fibre and concrete works well and the reinforcing material doesn’t degrade easily.
The Benefits of Using GRFC
- Weight – One of the best qualities of GRFC is the fact that it’s light weight, thin, and therefore much more versatile. It can be about 75% lighter than concrete of same dimensions reinforced with different materials. For example, a traditional concrete countertop slab is usually 2 inches thick while a GRFC countertop will only be 1 inch in thickness.
- Cracking – Because the glass fibre is a mesh-like material, the concrete doesn’t crack easily under pressure. It won’t chip or crumble as normal concrete does when it’s cut. This makes it ideal for large area surfaces like kitchen and bathroom countertops.
- Shape and Design – This material is truly versatile because it can be poured into a mould or shaped according to your liking. That’s one of the reasons why GFRC is often used in decorative elements.
- Resilience – Just because the concrete can be thin and light weight doesn’t mean that it’s weak. It can easily withstand up to 4000 psi of weight, especially if you use high quality materials to achieve the result.
- Durable – This material is very durable and will last for several decades after it’s installed. It has a clean finish that looks timeless and appealing so you won’t regret the decision to install it.
