 2. What is the difference between GRC and GFRC?

GFRC is glass fiber reinforced concrete with a minimum thickness of 1/2". True GFRC incorporates cast-in-place steel skeletons with re-bar outriggers which in turn are welded to the building structure. GFRC components can be supplied pre-colored.

GRC is glassfiber reinforced cement that is typically 5/16" thick and mechanically attached via screws. GRC is lighter in weight which makes it possible to install larger components without major lifting equipment. GRC is primed and painted on site.
