Birla White GRC opens up a whole new world of possibilities for modern architecture. It's 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 and engineers. This makes it the preferred choice for a wide range of designer applications.
GRC has a unique combination of properties ideal for the construction industry. The alkali resistance property of glass fibre as reinforcement material provides long-term durability because glass fibre, when used effectively reinforces the mortar mix thereby improving its tensile and flexural characteristics.
GRC provides the architect 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.
Today, GRC is the most sought after material worldwide because of its diverse properties and advantages.
• 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.
• Bridge deck form and parapets
Long but lightweight elements, which greatly reduce the load on the bridge
GRC can be installed quickly, reducing dead load on civil structures
GRC’s high strength reduces the number of support sections, while its high density offers graffiti-resistance
GRC does not rot, corrode or become brittle and requires
GRC comes with a wide range of textures and shades such as plain or sand stone, striped granite, oak finish, stonewall and acid
GRC’s high-impact resistance effectively minimises breakages during transportation and erection
GRC is steel-free making it resistant to electromagnetic interference
GRC’s unique AR glass fibre
makes it irrespirable unlike
GRC’s easy fixing method
avoids all problems of wet
