How you can GRC be decorated?

There are several ways GRC can be decorated. The most common of them involves placing an appropriate template on the surface. The pattern can be made manually, either at a factory or directly on-site, though far more common practice involves the use of special, large-format matrices. These can be arranged on a vibration table; the customer then receives the finished product decorated with a pattern. The matrices can also be used on-site, for example when laying the facade on a building or adorning a wall in an apartment.
The number of patterns is virtually unlimited, as apart from the most popular shapes, those made on the customer’s request are also available. The most common decorative surfaces are those mimicking the texture of natural wood, brick or stucco walls and natural stone. Completely smooth surfaces are also in use, as are those with slight “flaws” in the form of air bubbles. All kinds of straight lines, parallel or intersecting at different angles are becoming increasingly popular, as are ornaments (rosettes, braids, arabesques, floral ornaments), irregular patterns, inscriptions and dates. It is also possible to imitate “etching” the panel’s surface with acid or any other agent.
It is also worth remembering the color palette of GRC. Most are hues of white, gray, anthracite and black, although the composite may also be given other colors at the customer’s request. They are generally soft pastel shades of yellow, beige, brown, red and green, more rarely blue, and combinations thereof. Obtaining such colors mainly involves metal oxides – iron, chromium or cobalt. These shades are unlikely to be too intense, because the basis for them is the color of the concrete, which in itself is not colorless, but rather white or gray.
