Commercial construction-grade Stabil GFRC exhibits greater flexural and impact strength than traditional concrete, and incorporates glass fibers with tensile strengths exceeding those of steel.
GFRC is 75% lighter than normal concrete and precast concrete, with the added bonus that complex shapes and texture can also be achieved, so architects do not have to compromise on the visualised aesthetic appearance of the finished product.
According to the GFRC Director Dr Nimir Elbashir, the centre has an opportunity to lead multi-disciplinary innovative research activities in natural gas exploration, production, treatment and processing to support Qatar, which happens to be the world's capital of natural gas as well as Texas, the energy leader worldwide.
