Buddy Rhodes Concrete Products has released new products designed to further adapt glassfi ber reinforced concrete technology to concrete countertops.
The new offerings include Alkali Resistant (AR) Glass Fibers, Polymer Curing Compound, Plasticizer/Liquid Water Reducer and an ARCoated Glass Fiber Scrim. These products help increase strength and crack resistance for larger and lighter pieces at lesser thicknesses. The glass fibers’ alkali-resistant coating makes them tougher and more complementary to a concrete/polymer matrix.
The Buddy Rhodes GFRC system utilizes unique products that can be used separately or together and can be combined with the company’s mix and colors. Buddy Rhodes GFRC products can also be used with many other concrete mixes.
Training for Buddy Rhodes GFRC will be conducted exclusively by Gore Design Co. LLC, in Gore’s Tempe, Ariz., studio and at the Buddy Rhodes studio in San Francisco. ? www.buddyrhodes.com
