Concrete is a well-known building material. It was used already in ancient times. The first to be used was the Assyrians, later Egyptians used it. Subsequently, the Romans discovered that by mixing together clay, silica and calcium, cement can be obtained. High quality cement was not learned until the mid-18th century. Today, the use of concrete is very large. It is used on a large scale in industrial and residential construction, and builds driveways, sidewalks and road surfaces. The development of new technologies has also brought us new types of concrete.
Concrete perfect for any interior
In modern concrete, we will not find other basic ingredients than those that contain ordinary concrete. Basic raw materials are still sand, cement and water. To obtain architectural concrete of such a class, material CEM III is used for its production. As a result, concrete is obtained in a light and uniform color, which is much less exposed to cracks during hardening. The process of making architectural concrete is not the easiest one. It is very important to choose the right proportions of sand, water and cement, the conditions in which the elements will dry out and the humidity prevailing in the production hall.
What are the acoustic properties of wall panels from GRC?
Concrete is a heavy material. To reduce its weight and increase the possibility of its use, mineral fibers are added to it. Glass fibers are often used to reinforce architectural concrete. Thanks to the addition of these fibers, they manage to reduce weight without losing high strength parameters. Glass fiber reinforced architectural concrete products are marked with the abbreviation GFRC. We can also meet the abbreviation GFC. This abbreviation means the same product, with the first designation being more adopted in the United States than in European countries. It is perfect as acoustic wall panels, because it is the perfect insulation for any room. It is not too expensive material, and can greatly increase the comfort of use of rooms.
