Advantages of green GFRC for Green Building

bulletLow toxicity raw materials: Cement, sand, glass fibers natural coloring pigments and water  ( We can also use waterproofing additives)
bulletDurable, stain resistant, long lasting materials reduce replacement, maintenance and repair 
bulletOur green GFRC is supplied integrally colored with standard textures to eliminate VOC's during painting  (Our products come in 10 standard integral colors)
bulletNon-combustible GFRC meets ASTM E136
bulletLightweight foam coated precast products use 80% less material than precast

We can also use recycled aggregates such as recycled concrete, recycled water, and fly ash.
To achieve our sanded finish, we use natural sand and water which is used like sandpaper to remove the smooth cement surface and expose the aggregates, we also re-use the by-product of
this procedure (i.e. cement, sand water).
We like green GFRC because it produces a very lightweight and durable material that is easy to install. The end product is very strong and may be installed as thin as 3/4" which is practically impossible to do with any other concrete or cementitious material.

Green GFRC technology is considered environmentally friendly and very appealing when considering green building alternatives. Green does not only mean environmentally friendly but also sustainability, the more a product will last the more sustainable it is, also counting toward greenness are amount of waste generated during the process, how much of the ingredients are recycled material such as fly ash and how much maintenance will it need during the life of the product.

In addition to being strong and lightweight, green GFRC also offer a greater variety of option and finishing styles, another great advantage is that the materials very strong and not brittle like concrete which allows us to install anywhere without much risk.
