GRC (Glass Fiber Reinforced Concrete)

A Premium Product for Paramount Structures

Birla White GRC is a premium product matching the changing constructional needs in the civil engineering world and opens up a whole new world of possibilities for modern architecture. There is virtually no limit to the shape or profile that can be created in a variety of smooth, profiled or textural finishes. Moulds can be created to replicate the most complex of profiles in restoration, renovation and new construction. GRC cladding is lighter than pre-cast steel reinforced concrete cladding, it offers greater versatility due to its superior compressive strength and most importantly its flexural properties. It is easy to handle and fast to erect due to its lightweight mounting on a range of bespoke support systems.

Birla White GRC is a versatile and lightweight mouldable finishing material that's perfect for decorative elevations. It's made from Birla White Cement, high-silica sand, alkali-resistant glass fibres and other mixtures. Naturally occurring oxide pigments can be added to give it the desired shade of colour. It is one of the most versatile building materials available to architects/engineers/designers as it ignites excellent wall texture ideas. This makes it the preferred choice for a wide range of designer applications.

Birla White GRC usually finds applications in Building renovation works, Water and drainage works, Bridge and tunnel lining panels, Permanent formwork method of construction, Architectural cladding, Acoustic barriers and screens.

Birla White GRC provides the architect/engineer/designer with a wide range of products to choose from that no other material can match in terms of shape, form, texture, lightweight, mouldability and long term technical properties.

Why GRC?

Glass Fiber Reinforced Concrete also known as GRC is a cement-based composite material reinforced with alkali resistant fibres. GRC can be formed into thin sectioned lightweight elements and provides designers, architects and engineers with substantial advantages when compared to other traditional concrete materials. The fibres add tensile, impact and flexural strength and the resulting material allows the production of strong yet lightweight products used in civil engineering, architectural, interiors and many other applications. The alkali resistant property of glass fibre as reinforcement material provides long-term durability because glass fibre, when used effectively reinforces the mortar mix.
Lighter weight: With GRC, concrete can be cast in thinner sections and is therefore as much as 75% lighter than similar pieces cast with traditional concrete.
Reinforcement: Since GRC is reinforced internally, there is no need for other kinds of reinforcement, which can be difficult to place into complex shapes.
Adaptability: Sprayed or poured into a mould, GRC can adapt to nearly any complex shape, from rocks to fine ornamental details.
Toughness: GRC doesn't crack easily-it can be cut without chipping.

  • GRC Cladding

    Can be plain, textured, curved with bands:
    • Custom-made units for a specific building or use
    • In modular units for system building
    • As over cladding to existing facades

    • Window surrounds
    • Partitions
    • Domes
  • Decorative features / Sun Screens

    • Sun barriers
    • Partition walls
  • Roofing

    • False ceiling – due to light weight, toughness, easy fixing and unaffected by environmental conditions
    • Landscaping and Garden Furniture

  • Technical / Civil Engineering applications:

    • Noise barriers
    The weight per unit of GRC or its surface mass, stiffeners provides a property of noise insulation at lower frequencies. Typical 10 mm thick GRC having surface mass 20 Kg / M2 will have an average sound reduction of about 30 decibel.
