|Product Information: Micro Concrete Roofing Equipment - Fibre or Micro Concrete Tiles (BASIN - GTZ GATE - SKAT, 1997, 38 p.)|
What are FCR and MCR
FCR (Fibre Concrete Roofing) is a roofing technology developed in the eighties. It consists of concrete tiles made of cement mortar mixed with a small amount of natural or synthetic fibre.
MCR (Micro Concrete Roofing) is a further developed technology of FCR that does not use fibres. The production of FCR tiles is very exacting. Therefore SKAT recommends MCR technology because it is easier to use.
