• GRG is lightweight and strong: Reinforced with extremely resilient glass fibers, Glass Fiber Reinforced Gypsum is a building material that is quite strong. GRG is also light, weighing in at just two to three pounds per square foot. This is a great combination, allowing for the installation of sturdy elements without extra support.
    • GRG is malleable and versatile: Unlike other common building materials, fiber reinforced gypsum elements are crafted by casting them in molds. This allows for the creation of almost any size, shape, or texture. GRG is also versatile in terms of available finishes. GRG elements can be painted with flat latex, or they can be crafted to have a wood grain texture or look like copper, aged bronze, or sandstone.
    • Glass  Reinforced Gypsum is fire resistant: Gypsum, one of the main ingredients in GRG, is a mineral that will not burn. In addition to being fire-resistant, GRG elements are also capable of protecting areas behind them for approximately two hours.
    • GRG is made of non-toxic materials: Finding green building materials is important for many home and business owners, and GRG is an environmentally-sustainable choice. Glass Reinforced Gypsum is made from natural materials that are not considered pollutants. In addition, GRG does not emit any strong odors that might affect individuals with environmental sensitivities. GRG is stable and nontoxic, so those who own homes, resorts, casinos, restaurants, and retail stores can feel good about using it in indoor environments.
    • Glass Reinforced Gypsum is a cost-effective choice: GRG elements are typically a good investment from a financial perspective. They do not typically require extensive maintenance and regular repairs and are not susceptible to mold, insect infestation, rot, rust, or corrosion like some other building materials. In addition, the appearance of GRG elements can be completely changed by adding a new coat of paint. Finally, fiber reinforced gypsum is a much more affordable material than some of the materials it can replicate, including marble, limestone, and gold.
