Uses of GRC
GRC is one of the most popular materials used for creative prefabricated architectural cladding. GRC’s ability to be moulded into thin, lightweight panels with a wide variety of shapes, forms and surface finishes has been appreciated by a growing audience of architects and engineers worldwide.
GRC cladding panels are generally manufactured by the ‘Hand Spray’ technique. As the name implies, the material is sprayed into a mould using special machinery. The method can produce high-performance materials from which panels with extremely thin, lightweight sections are achievable.
GRC is easily moulded to reproduce shapes, details and textures.
GRC is high strength allows design of thin, lightweight cladding elements.
GRC can be coloured with pigments, paints and natural stone facings.
GRC cladding can replace non-structural precast concrete where weight and/or shape may be problematic.
