Materials

GFRC (Glass Fiber Reinforced Cement)

  • Appearance of carved stone
  • Suitable for indoor and outdoor use
  • Moderately heavy
  • Generally less expensive than Fiberstone

Stone Yard, Inc. manufactures GFRC products from a precise mixture of high-grade cement reinforced with glass fiber and other additives for enhanced binding and strength. The resulting material has the appearance of stone but lighter weight and greater durability.

FiberStone

  • Indistinguishable in appearance from GFRC
  • Well suited to high traffic areas
  • Suitable for indoor and outdoor use
  • Lighter weight than GFRC

Stone Yard, Inc. manufactures Fiberstone products using a proprietary process that combines glass fiber, polyester resins and aggregate materials, resulting in stone-finished products that have a fraction of the weight of actual  stone. Because Fiberstone products resist impact damage, they are ideal for commercial settings and high-access areas.

SyGlos

Stone Yard, Inc. manufactures SyGlos that provides an ultra high-gloss color finish. The material is composed of marine grade, high-gloss resin colors, infused with the item during the manufacturing process. These modern glossy finishes have a base material of durable Fiberstone and are especially complementary with contemporary designs. In additiona, we can also utilize this finish with some textured pieces. Please contact our sales team for availablity, colors, and pricing.
