How is GFRC Made?

GFRC Information

While GFRC hints at how Stromberg GFRC is made, it doesn’t tell the whole story.  Glass Fiber Reinforced Concrete can be made by any company.  It is simply Portland cement, sand, aggregate, and glass fibers.  Stromberg GFRC, however, is special.

Stromberg mixes a special blend of polymers, Portland cement, sand, aggregate, and glass fibers together.  These are mixed with special machines only Stromberg has.

A mold of plastic, rubber, fiberglass, or wood is made in the negative.  Any color is then sprayed in the mold so that it will bond chemically with the GFRC.  The GFRC is then sprayed or hand packed into the mold in layers.  Each layer is compacted with rollers so there are no air spaces and the mold is packed solid.

If a steel stud is going to be used to hang the GFRC, it is laid into the wet mixture now.  The GFRC is allowed to harden.  Once it is hardened, it is removed from the mold and cured.  Stromberg GFRC is one of the most durable and strongest GFRC products on the market.

At this point, the GFRC is ready to be installed.  You can install your own or Stromberg GFRC can install it for you.  If you choose to install your own, Stromberg GFRC can sell you the hardware with which to do so.
