GFRC - Glass Fibre Reinforced Concrete
Owen's Concrete Design specialises in Glass Fibre Reinforced Concrete (GFRC) All our products are handmade in our workshop in Mandurah.
What is GFRC?
Glass Fibre Reinforced Concrete (GFRC) is made by combining a mixture of graded sand, cement, acrylic polymer, water and alkali-resistant glass fibres.
Why use GFRC?
GFRC is an engineered concrete that has been used for over 40 years by concrete artisans. There are many benefits of using GFRC, the main being that is a lightweight and durable concrete. This means there is generally no need to reinforce your floors or cabinetry, as our GFRC products are a third of the weight of traditional concrete.
The glass fibres give a higher tensile strength and more flexibility to the concrete, this enables us to create thinner pieces and more complex casting designs.
