CemFil Alkali Resistant Chopped Fibre Glass Strand

Glass-Fibre Reinforced Concrete (GRC) is the generic term for a high-strength composite stone made with cement mortar. GRC differs from what most people refer to as ‘fibreglass’ in that cement mortar is used instead of a plastic resin (e.g. polyester) for encapsulating the fibreglass strands.

Environmentally friendly

The main constituents of GRC are based on the naturally occurring earth oxides that are used in the manufacture of cement and glass fibres. These are not generally regarded as pollutants.

The reduced weight of GRC compared to steel reinforced concrete products provides environmental benefits.
