Glass Fibre Reinforced Concrete (GFRC)
Our G F R C Works
GFRC is a family of composite materials that combine the high compressive strength properties of cement mortars with significantly increased impact, flexural and tensile strengths imparted by the fibre reinforcement.
GFRC products are safe, have good chemical resistance and will not rot or corrode. GFRC is made of inorganic materials and will nor burn, has negligible smoke emission and offers good fire resistance. In some circumstances GFRC is made containing polymer materials which may slightly affect some fire performance properties. GFRC is normally of relatively thin cross section, giving a low component weight which allows savings in handling, storage, transportation, and installation compared with traditional concrete products.
There are two main methods of manufacturing GFRC :
- Spraying of fibre and slurry simultaneously onto a mould, by manual or mechanical means. Typical products made using the spray process include architectural cladding panels, channels, tanks, facade elements, ducting and permanent formwork.
- Premixing the fibre and slurry and then processing the mixture by vibration casting, extrusion, injection moulding etc., to produce the end product forms. Typical products made using the premix process are sunscreens, planters, electrical transformer housings, slates and tiles, junction boxes and drainage components.
Glass Fibre Reinforced Gypsum (GFRG)
Our G F R G Works
Glass Fiber Reinforced Gypsum (GFRG or GFRG) is the bridge to shapes and curves for the drywall/plasterboard trades. With the move away from "less is more" in the late 1970's and the re-introduction of traditional architectural forms, GFRG (or GFRG) evolved as the ideal medium. The construction boom of the past four decades established Glass Fiber Reinforced Gypsum as the means for architects and designers to achieve their design visions, while leveraging the experience of regular building trades. Today, Glass Fiber Reinforced Gypsum is used to achieve modern and "organic" shapes on walls and ceiling, in addition to traditional architectural shapes.
Glass Fibre Reinforced Plastic (GFRP)
Our G F R P Works
Basically, GFRP consists of thermosetting resins and glass fibre. With regard to composing these ingredients and choosing the right resins, best winding techniques and glass fibre components to guarantee the quality and the benefits of the materials, Plasticon Composites is the right and major choice. Experience and expertise is key to ensuring that customers are supplied with well designed GFRP products.
