The three main differences between EPS and GRC are as follows: material, usage and characteristics.
GRC decorative components are mainly composed of alkali-resistant glass fiber as reinforcement auxiliary material, low alkalinity sulphoaluminate cement as cementing material, and yellow sand or quartz sand.
EPS decorative component is a new product extending with the development of annealing furnace in the field of exterior wall thermal insulation material and GRC component. The main material is based on polystyrene thermal insulation board, which is cut into various lines by electric wire cutting equipment.
Compare the pictures. The difference between GRC and EPS is obvious. There are great differences in materials and applications.
GRC: GRC decorations (European components include Roman columns, window covers, lintels, etc.), GRC exterior wall panels (similar to curtain wall panels), GRC partition panels (interior wall), sculptures, gardening products, etc.
EPS: It is generally used as thermal insulation material in buildings, but also as light filling material.
GRC: Various shapes, good fire resistance, long service life, high strength and so on.
EPS: Mild high, low cost, fast production cycle, anti-freeze insulation, etc.
GRC and EPS are both decorative materials in the construction industry. They have their own strengths and weaknesses. Generally, GRC materials are preferred in high-quality projects. After all, GRC is better in decoration and has excellent characteristics. GRC is also slightly more expensive in price.
