  • GFRC Mix Materials

    GFRC Mix Materials

    Buddy Rhodes GFRC products allow artisans to create strong and lightweight concrete objects. Great for use with concrete countertops, concrete furniture, concrete fireplace surrounds, architectural concrete elements, and concrete art.

    Gaining flexural strength from glass fibers, GFRC is capable of being made in much thinner sections than traditionally cast concrete, while having improved flexural strength. GFRC can be sprayed into the molds, forcing out the air and producing a dense and tight finish. GFRC can also be directly cast into molds in certain applications.

    Features our Glass Fiber Reinforced mix. Can be sprayed, poured, pressed, or troweled. Great for use with concrete countertops, concrete furniture, concrete fireplace surrounds, architectural concrete elements, and concrete art. Learn More.

  • ECC Mix Materials

    ECC Mix Materials

    ECC blended mixes produce a very dense and strong concrete which is more likely to bend than break. Combine with reinforcement fibers and water reducer to create workabilities that range from taffy to clay to pancake batter.
