The GRCA techNOTE 02 GRC Standards & Testing, is available to view below:

Glassfibre reinforced concrete (GRC or GFRC) is a composite material consisting of a mortar of cement and fine aggregate reinforced with alkali-resistant glass fibres. GRC is normally of relatively thin cross-section, typically down to 12mm thickness depending on application, and as such the tests carried out to measure performance and ensure consistent quality differ from those of precast concrete. Whereas precast concrete is usually characterised by compression strength measured in cube tests, the properties of GRC are measured by flexural strength testing of thin samples, where the performance imparted by the fibre reinforcement is evident.
