What is GFRG?
GFRG, or Glass Fiber Reinforced Gypsum (sometimes called GRG), is a material made industrial grade gypsum and continuous strand fiberglass that is used exclusively in interior architectural designs.
What is Gypsum?
Gypsum is another term for a mineral made up of calcium, sulfur, and water (calcium sulfate dihydrate). Alabaster, the material used in many ancient Egyptian sculptures, is a type of gypsum. Gypsum’s light weight and strength as a versatile, non-toxic architectural material has several advantages over traditional concrete and competing options. The type of gypsum we use in GFRG is industrial grade, meaning it exceeds all standards for quality.
We use only recycled gypsum for our designs, repurposed from the waste of other industrial products. This makes GFRG a more “green” approach to interior architecture.
What is Glassfiber?
Glass fibers are a popular and environmentally friendly reinforcement material, made with extremely thin glass. When added to the gypsum, the product (GFRG / GRG) becomes even more durable, and ideal for long term use.
Benefits of GFRG
Together, glass fiber reinforced gypsum has become one of the single most popular materials for high quality, cost efficient, environmentally friendly interior paneling and design elements, with advantages that include:
- Design Flexibility
- Lighter Weight (without sacrificing strength)
- Easier Installation, and More.
