Testing - GRC Synergies

Our head office laboratory facilities allow us to carry out verification checks on all values claimed by the manufacturer and used within the design engineering calculations.
Flexural strength, density, water absorption, and apparent porosity tests are essential elements in determining the in-service performance of the GRC/GFRC. These tests were developed by Pilkington/BRE in the 1970s and form the basis of all GRCA/PCI/BS EN/ASTM testing requirements for the material on a global basis.
Along with testing for embedded anchor pull out and shear strengths and colour variations we can carry out all established and required testing on both manufactured samples and sections taken from finished or delivered products.
