The GFRC Blended Mix is a carefully proportioned blend of cement, sand, pozzolans, curing polymer and performances additives designed to the highest performance standards. This mix can be used in a multitude of ways, serving as a base mix for infinite applications. The mix is ideal for spraying, fiber reinforced scc (self compacting/consolidating concrete), and with minimal modifications can be pressed, troweled, or converted into a high performance wet cast mix or terrazzo mix. When reinforced with fiber, this mix can be created with minimal thickness and high tensile strengths.

This mix reaches impressive strengths in under 24 hours, allowing for rapid turn around when necessary. The mix uses all white ingredients, naturally curing to a bone white. The mix can be pigmented to any color using the BR Color Series, Custom Color, or with our Pure Pigments.

The mix has all of the necessary high performance ingredients preblended, including curing polymer, such that only water and necessary reinforcement need to be added. The workability of the mix can be changed with the addition of our series of water reducers. Primary reinforcement can be achieved using our series of reinforcing fibers.

MIXING INSTRUCTIONS FOR GFRC

  • Combine water and pigment together and mix thoroughly.
  • Add 50% of the water reducer to the water. Slowly add dry ingredients while continuing to blend. Add remainder of water reducer. Blend until homogeneous

For Backer Mixes:

  • After initial blending, slowly add the AR Glass Fiber to the mix. Blend until homogeneous*. Temper with water reducer as needed for desired consistency.

If Using Acrylic Fiber:

  • Mix fibers with 20% of the mix to create an acrylic fiber slurry.
  • After initial blending, add acrylic fiber slurry and any pigments you are using. Blend until homogeneous.

*Mixing too long or at too high a speed after fiber has been added can filamentize or damage the fiber, resulting in placement issues and reduced strengths.

COVERAGE AND CEMENT CONTENT

This mix is typically done at 0.75” - 1” thick. This mix is often cast at ½” thick for objects like tiles, but considerations must be given in the handling and support of the piece.

  • Coverage: One bag covers +/- 5 sq. ft. at 1” thick. One bag produces +/- 30 sq. ft. of mist/face coat when sprayed.
  • Cement Content: 26 lb
