GFRG TECHNOLOGY/ RAPID HOMES
There have been numerous efforts to build LOW-COST houses across the country. Most innovative among them is the method created by IIT Madras students, who have built low-cost, ECO-FRIENDLY houses by using ‘Glass Fibre Reinforced Gypsum’ (GFRG) panels. They have successfully built a housing unit, which was constructed within a month using pre-fabricated GFRG panels made from waste gypsum.
The fertilizer industry produces around 2,000 tonnes of gypsum everyday in the form of waste, which is dumped over a large area. This waste is re-processed by calcining it into gypsum plaster, which forms the raw material for gypsum panels, which are manufactured in Mumbai by Rapidwall Building Systems, Australia.
FRBL PREFAB GYPWALL is a revolutionary low cost load bearing, prefabricated, walling system with broad construction application for individual domestic houses to multi-storey residential buildings.
WHY GFRG IS BEST
READILY AVAILABLE AND EASY TO APPLY
Under the pilot project, the low cost house of 500sq.ft costed around INR575,000 which is INR125,000 less than a conventional house. Gypsum board is readily available and easy to apply. It is an inexpensive wall surfacing material that provides a fire resistant interior finish. Gypsum board building systems can generally be installed at significantly lower labor costs than most alternate systems. Ceilings, floor and staircase made using this don’t require plastering.
EXCELLENT DIMENSIONAL STABILITY AND DURABILITY
Gypsum board is used to construct strong, high quality walls and ceilings that offer excellent dimensional stability and durability. Surfaces created using gypsum board are easily decorated and refinished.
IT CAN BE USED FOR RECYCLING.
GRG as a GEP (Green Environmental Protection) material has no odor, and its Radioactive Nuclide Limit is accord with A-style decoration material standard of GB6566-2001, which can be used for recycling.
LESS MANUFACTURE PERIOD
Mold-release time of GRG products needs only 30 minutes, and drying time only 4 hours, which can largely decrease the manufacture period.
NO CHAP AND NO DISTORTION AFTER LONG LIFE USE
GRG has no corrosive action on glass fiber, and its wet-dry shrinkage ratio is less than 0.01%, which ensures the stability and durability of the product and appears no chap and no distortion after long life use.
EXCEED 10 TIMES OF THE RUPTURE LOAD
Superior strength and durability: after experiment, the rupture load of GRG product is more than 1200N, which exceed 10 times of the rupture load of JC/T799-1998（1996）Decoration Gypsum (118N).
MICROCLIMATE LIVING CONDITION
GRG board is a special material consisting of mini-hole structure. In nature environment, multi-hole can absorb or release moistures. When it’s high temperature and low humidity indoor, the board will gradually release moistures from mini-hole; when it’s low temperature and high humidity, it will absorb moistures from the air. Such RELEASE and ABSORB forms the “Breathing” effect. This kind of circulation appears the effect of indoor humidity adjustment, creating a comfortable “microclimate” of working and living conditions.
RELEASE 15%~20% MOISTURES OF ITS OWN WEIGHT
GRG material is an A-Class fireproof material. When meets fire, it can not only prevent burning, but also release 15%~20% moistures of its own weight, which can largely reduce the surface temperature and fire damage.
SOUND INSULATION AND ABSORPTION
after test, the permeation lost of 4mm thick GRG material is 500Hz 23d, 100Hz 27db, and its air-dry specific gravity is 1.75, which accord with echo requirement of special acoustics. Though style design, it can form a well absorbing structure for sound insulation and absorption.
IT’S EASY FOR PROCESSING ON SITE
GRG can be made in different styles based on designers, and can be produced and divided in large chunk. It’s easy for processing on site, quick and flexible for installation, and can be seamlessly spliced in large piece to form an integrated style without errors, especially for opening, camber and corner, etc.
EXCELLENT DECORATION EFFECT
whiteness surpasses more than 85%, and it can be well plastered with all kinds of paints and decoration materials to form an excellent effect.
DECREASE THE MAIN BODY WEIGHT AND COMPONENT LOAD
Standard thickness of the plane part of GRG product is 3.2~8.8mm (more thick if required), and the weight of per square meter is only 4.9~9.8kg, which can decrease the main body weight and component load.
