Design, Manufacture and Installation of Glass Reinforced Concrete (GRC) PDF

$55.00

Glass Reinforced Concrete (GRC) is a composite material consisting of a portland cement and sand mortar, reinforced with alkali-resistant glass fibres. The GRC may contain additional filler materials and admixtures. Fibre content varies by weight depending on product application and production method employed. The final properties of GRC depend on a wide range of variables such as mix materials and formulation, manufacture, fibre product type, length and orientation and admixtures used.
A GRC material may be tailored to meet the particular requirements of a specific application. The information given in this publication refers to GRC incorporating AR glass fibre, made by the spray and vibration cast processes. The materials and manufacturing techniques discussed have been widely used for a number of years and their properties and characteristics studied extensively.
