Frequently Asked Questions
If I grind to expose aggregate, will these glass fibers show in the surface?
Yes, glass fibers will show up on surface if you’ll grind concrete surface unless you mix two batches and line your mold with about 1/2 to 3/4 in of the batch without the glass fibers. Also depends if you are doing cast in place or inverted. You can also torch the the alkali resistant fibers after grinding.
How much glass fiber do I need for casting GFRC Countertops?
It really depends to your preferences or casted product, but average alkali resistant fibers to GFRC concrete ratio is between 1 to 3% by total concrete weight. For 100 lbs of GFRC you need between 1 to 3 lbs of glass fibers. Always make a test prior casting actual product. Standard concrete ratio 1 1/2 to 3 lbs per cubic yard
