Description

Glass fiber-reinforced concrete (GFRC) is a popular construction material used to manufacture precast concrete products in architectural and civil engineering applications. GFRC products have desirable aesthetics and physical properties, including durability, strength, toughness, moisture resistance, dimensional stability, and fire resistance. This report summarizes the processes, properties, and applications of GFRC made by the spray-up process, and processes that use continuous strands and woven, knitted, or bonded textiles.

Keywords: alkali-resistant glass fiber; architectural panels; cement boards; composites; concrete panels; ductility; durability; fiber-reinforced concrete; filament winding; formwork; glass fiber-reinforced concrete; glass-reinforced concrete; mesh reinforcement; permanent formwork; premix; precast concrete; spray-up process; textile-reinforced concrete; toughness.
