GFRC is used as an exterior cladding material for both new constructions and recladding or restoration of existing building facades. Due to its extreme flexibility in function and design, it is also used extensively in applications not requiring a steel stud frame and is generally produced using one of the Premix processes. GFRC can make 1/2 the thickness of traditional precast; it is automatically 1/2 the weight. And, because it does not use stone or as much sand, which are denser and more massive than cement, the weight savings is even more significant.
With GFRC, concrete can be cast in thinner sections and is lighter than similar pieces cast with traditional concrete. GFRC as a material is much more expensive than conventional concrete on a pound-for-pound basis. But since the cross-sections can be so much thinner, that cost is overcome in most decorative elements.
