BEYOND THE “GLASS” CEILING—Announcing the Professional Decorative Fiber Reinforced Concrete (D-FRC) Training, offering the most innovative, “sky-is-the-limit” technology in Fiber Reinforced Concrete. CHENG Concrete introduces this authoritative training with a groundbreaking suite of D-FRC Products that yield ultra-thin, high strength decorative pre-cast concrete with precision results.
Compare Traditional GFRC methods to D-FRC Advanced Technology to gain the most insightful view of where decorative concrete is headed and how to design with a broader scope, work with unparalleled products, and to build a better business:
|Traditional GFRC Methods||D-FRC Advanced Technology|
|a. Long Learning Curve: equals time, capital and labor investment||a. Quick Confidence Gain: in products, process, and consistent, professional project results|
|b. Time-Consuming + Exacting: batch of GFRC, hours spent weighing out material preparing for a pour||b. Efficient + Simple = Savings: all necessary ingredients are in a bag, bottle, water, and mix—much less time consumed in the preparation, planning and execution|
|c. Limited Range of Environmental Conditions: need over 85 degrees before polymers start working; heat levels are at a narrower range||c. “Cast-Anywhere” Conditions: environments ranging from 40-90 degrees without the need of ice water, heaters, or expensive shop enhancements|
|d. Strength-to-Thickness ratio: sample countertop project yields a ¾” thickness||d. High Strength to Ultra Thin Ratio: same strength for large format countertop project that yields as thin as ½” thickness|
|e. Design Limitations: primarily based on vertical, exterior cladding system limited to abrasion-free applications (less desirable wear performance for horizontal applications)||e. Design Flexibility: Ability to control shape, color, dimension and achieve finer, detailed texture transfer for unlimited interior, exterior, vertical and/or horizontal applications; expanded ultra-thin 3/8” thick design applications including large format, floor tiles, stair treads/nosings, column surrounds, hearths, furniture, sculpture and more|
Learn how to use NeoMix D-FRC Products to build lighter, stronger, seamless concrete countertops and indoor and outdoor concrete projects in one-third the time. The D-FRC method also has green benefits as it saves on materials and supplies, requiring one-third less material and does not require any steel reinforcement as compared to standard wet cast methods.
The 3-day Professional Decorative Fiber Reinforced Concrete Training offers advanced in-depth instruction on how to build concrete projects that will provide the benefits of being lighter at 6 lbs./s.f. (on average). Time savings is a key benefit for the FRC method—projects can be de-molded 12 hours after casting. Learn how an entire project can be turned around from template to installation within 72 hours or less. Learn more in the D-FRC FAQs menu below.
