The GammaStone GFRC Plus AIR solution is composed of ultra-thin high-performance concrete reinforced with amorphous metal fi bres. The panel offers self-cleaning and photocatalytic characteristics thanks to the special ingredient TX Active. It allows designers to customise both the colour and surface finish.
The panel is composed by an ultra-thin mortar slab (high-performance photocatalytic and self-cleaning, reinforced with amorphous metal fibers), a structural core interposed between two fibre glass mats and a 0.5 mm stainless steel plate. This biodynamic concrete has durable aesthetic characteristics, reducing and simplifing maintenance actions.
TX ACTIVE technology (patented by Italcementi) makes the GFRC Plus cement mortar photocatalytic. the active principle in the material “captures” air pollutants when it is exposed to the sunlight. It changes certain harmful substances in inert salts, helping to free up the atmosphere from the smog.
The mortar also includes the use for the 80% of recycled aggregates, in part coming from the working dust of Carrara marble, that gives a superior brightness compared to the traditional white concretes. It includes also, amorphous metal fibers in order to make the material more resistant.
