In the construction market, there are many different materials that are used for renovations and creating new objects. However, there is one technology that stands ahead of all the others. Glass fiber reinforced concrete also known as GRC (GFRC), is now one of the most commonly used natural materials in the construction industry, with exceptional durability and texture. Its composition consists of specialized sand, cement, water, alkali resistant fiberglass, appropriately selected chemicals and/or colorants, which are dispensed in the appropriate proportions according to a specific technological regime; it has become the company’s secret. What sets it apart from others is primarily the ease of use, thanks to which we can achieve freedom in shaping the space surrounding us. Its main advantage is also plasticity, versatility and lightness, which gives you the freedom in forming the shape. Not without significance is unique hardness and strength of fiber concrete, it is characterized by its high resistance to destructive external factors such as sun, frost and corrosion.
GRC Beton Poland Company – a national leader in the GFRC technology, working in accordance with its motto „GRC is the freedom of designing and building”, uses fibro-cement to produce panels and cladding, decorative and functional elements, including: floor slabs, kitchen and bathroom tops and windowsills. Due to the high standard of aesthetics, the fiber-concrete material is becoming increasingly popular with customers who want to be happy and satisfied with the final results of construction and finishing work in their homes, and more.
To preserve and protect existing historic buildings from the effects of father time, the best solution is to use GRC concrete. The application of this type of concrete in the renovation of monuments is a common practice among conservators. Due to the favourable material properties: high resistance, durability, flexibility among others, GRC concrete is becoming more and more popular in architecture and reconstructive procedures. Materials used in the renovation of old buildings have to be vastly different from those used in modern construction. GRC Concrete – what is that? GRC concrete (also known as GFRC) is a type of concrete reinforced with fiberglass, where the main building materials are cement, water and aggregate mixed with glass fibre materials. GRC concrete has several advantages, including: – high abrasion and compression strength; – high resistance to various, extreme weather conditions; – fire resistance; – easy to create and from any shape; – […]
GRC concrete reinforced with fiberglass is widely used in the construction industry. You can call it a timeless product, and its potential is only proven by its wide range of use. Thanks to its unique formula and extraordinary resistance, it is used not only for decorative purposes, giving the interiors an industrial character, but also as a fire-retardant lining. Modern fireproof claddings Structures made of reinforced concrete contain a fire-retardant layer to meet the fire protection standard, which is 2 hours on average. This rule aims to provide residents or travellers with sufficient time to evacuate from a building or tunnel. The capability of modern concrete claddings to maintain excellent adhesion at high temperatures leads to the increased safety of buildings. GRC linings – why are they worth it? One of the forms of concrete is used in more and more frequently is cladding made of glass fibre reinforced concrete. […]
Every building, regardless of what material it was made of, requires cleaning or washing after some time. If the concrete has already been impregnated, dirt or settling dust is very easy to remove. Usually, a strong stream of water and a small amount of chemical agent are sufficient for a specific type of surface. Before deciding to clean the facade, it is a good idea to get familiar with the properties of the material that covers your house. What makes a facade dirty? Rain and snow cause streaks and settling dust on our façade. Stains and dirt can destroy the appearance of external walls. Regardless of whether the wall is part of your house or your fence, keeping it clean will certainly improve the whole look of the property. The permeable surface of concrete absorbs colouring factors, which is why water and brushing alone may not remove impurities from a […]
For several decades, concrete has been the favourite building and architectural material almost all over the world. However, despite its durability and resistance to weather conditions, damage can occur in it, caused by the human factor, unfortunately. Graffiti can effectively spoil not only ruin your day, but also an unprotected facade, penetrating deeply into the material structure. However, there are ways to protect yourself from vandals and save time for later removal of unwanted artistry. How to protect the facade against vandals Among building enthusiasts, it is said that the facade is the face of the building. It has an undeniable influence on the appearance and reception of urban architecture – building facades are variable and individual, just like human faces. To maintain their value and aesthetic look, they must be under the best possible care and treated with an individual approach. What if someone decides to destroy the facade, […]
