GRC Synergies Ltd
GRC Synergies Ltd is an impartial and independent company providing consultancy, quality management, inspection and testing services on a worldwide basis.
GRC Synergies operate their own UKAS accredited laboratory which can undertake all required cast stone testing to UKCSA requirements and all British and European Standards.
GRC Synergies can also test to all applicable EN, ASTM and GRCA test methods including EN 1170-7 and 1170-8. Their specialist bending test rig allows them to test coupons for flexural strength up to 20 mm in thickness allowing them to carry out flexural strength tests on samples cut from finished products.
GRC Synergies have also developed in house Laboratory Manual Methods for embedded anchor testing which they feel is an essential part of GRC manufacture and yet is not covered by any standards or testing methods.
Synergies Moulds Ltd
Synergies Moulds ltd is a specialist supplier of both patterns and moulds to the cast stone and GRC industries.
Their craftsmen have extensive experience in the sectors and can manufacture moulds from timber, steel, resin and rubber.
