As you decide what architectural pieces you need for your next build, you may come across two separate terms to refer to what sounds like similar products:

  • GFRC
  • GRC

When determining what type of material to use, it is not uncommon to find yourself confused by these similar terms. We hope that this short introduction can help.

What is the Difference Between GFRC and GRC?

The difference between GFRC and GRC is nothing. They both refer to the same material. The reason that there are two separate acronyms is because of variations of the term “glass fiber”:

  • Glassfibre Reinforced Cement (GRC)
  • Glass Fiber Reinforced Cement (GFRC)

The former is the British spelling, but the acronym is still used in the United States by some builders since the product is frequently referred to by only an acronym.

Because both are the same material, they are both defined as cement, water, glass fiber, and other safe chemicals. The glass fiber is also alkali resistant (AR) which extends its lifespan and is suitable for use in concrete.
