GRCA Specification for GRC

The GRCA "Specification for the Manufacture, Curing & Testing of Glassfibre Reinforced Concrete (GRC) Products" is designed to enable architects, engineers and specifiers to specify GRC. It covers all aspects of GRC production from raw materials, through production, curing and storage to quality assurance and testing.

GRCA Methods of Testing GRC

The GRCA "Methods of Testing Glassfibre Reinforced Concrete (GRC) Material" define the procedures to be used when testing GRC as a material. The methods given here are those normally used in Quality Control situations and it is the intention of the GRCA to issue other standard test procedures covering different properties where necessary.

GRCA Practical Design Guide for GRC

The "Practical Design Guide for Glass Reinforced Concrete using Limit State Theory" has been prepared by the International GRCA Technical Committee. The purpose of the publication is to provide a useful reference for specifiers, designers, manufacturers and fixers of glassfibre reinforced concrete (GRC) products and to encourage the use of good design practices.

Assessment of GRC Test Results

GRC manufacturers may use the GRCA’s "Characteristic Value Spreadsheet" to determine the compliance of GRC test results with the GRCA Specification requirements for LOP and MOR values. GRC test results input into the first sheet are automatically analysed and displayed on the second sheet.
GRC manufacturing GRCA Members must complete and submit a "Characteristic Value Spreadsheet" on an annual basis.

GRCA Full Member Regulations

Any manufacturer displaying the GRCA “Full Member” logo (previously referred to as the GRCA AMS) has been audited by an independent certifying body appointed by the International GRCA.

As part of the Full Member audit process the GRC manufacturer must demonstrate that they have sufficient resources in both plant, equipment and labour to manufacture high quality GRC in accordance with the "GRCA Full Member Grade, Regulations, Membership Procedure and Assessment", available here.
