Whether you are going to buy Jesmonite to restock on your supplies, or you are thinking of using Jesmonite for the first time, you will find everything you need here at Alec Tiranti.
Jesmonite casting material has become very popular since it was first created in the 80’s and artists, sculptures and manufacturers alike continue to find ways to put its many properties to good use. For example, the versatility of the product makes it one of the most popular choices when casting. Jesmonite is capable of mimicking many textures such as wood, fabric or stone.
You can use a wide variety of colour pigments and metal powders to gain the finish you want, plus it is a much lighter material than cast concrete and some other casting solutions.
Jesmonite can be cast into a variety of mould types, however for the best results silicone will offer the highest quality finish and detail. Ideally suited for a variety of modelling, casting and mouldmaking applications Jesmonite is available in a number of different product groups depending on application.
Jesmonite AC 100 is a water based composite material with no solvents or VOC’s, the product can be used for castings and carving, plus it can be used as a mould casing when allied to Quadaxial glassfibre matting.
Jesmonite AC 300 is similar to AC 100 but has a lower acrylic resin content. This makes the product a little cheaper and more suited to larger casts, especially when laminated with Quadaxial matting. AC 300 can be using for mould casings – in a lot of ways it is a better choice than AC 100 for this task – the product is slightly lighter in consistency.
Quadaxial glassfibre matting was developed by Jesmonite specifically to use with Jesmonite resins, ultra lightweight, yet extremely strong, the lay-up of the fibres makes the product ideal for casting lamination but more especially for mould casings. Mould casings are both structurally stiff and incredibly lightweight, plus when using Jesmonite there are no solvents, or pungent fumes to deal with.
Jesmonite is not solvent based, this means less fumes than other casting mediums, plus it can be cleaned up really easily because the product is water soluble.
Jesmonite recommend wearing a mask when mixing and handling the powder materials – plus we always recommend that you use plaster traps in your drainage system to prevent the product entering the watercourse – mainly to prevent blockages from the material if it sets in the pipework.
