Facade Cladding Solutions

AS1530.1 Non Combustible Facade Cladding

Jesmonite® AC730 is classed as Non-Combustible when tested in accordance with AS1530.1-1994.

Using our Jesmonite raw material, using our in-house manufacturers HGN Design, we’re able to produce cladding systems that are lighter than concrete, high impact resistant & most importantly, non-combustible.

Jesmonite® AC730 is a polymer based, Grade 18 GRC which is supplied as a pre-mix material, some of the benefits of the material are:

  • Fire-resistant with a class zero fire rating
  • Reduced smoke density & toxicity
  • Can replicate appearance & texture of any surface
  • Solvent free with no VOC’s
  • Achieves over 90% of its ultimate strength in the first 24hrs
  • A superior de-mould time during production compared to traditional materials mean less moulds are required 
  • Shrinkage compensated material of low permeability
  • Durable in all conditions of external weathering
  • Reduced free-lime content, with low alkalinity, leading to major reductions in efflorescence in comparison with ordinary Portland cement systems

ACRYLIC MODIFIED CEMENTITIOUS COMPOSITES (PGRC)

This range of composites represents the ultimate evolution in ready-to-use formulated cement compounds, and provides solutions for both cast and fibre reinforced products.

We offer a bespoke matching service to assist manufacturers, architects, and designers to match any colour scheme and surface finish.

AC730

Jesmonite AC730 is a rapid setting acrylic modified cementitious composite. The system is primarily designed for glass reinforced, lightweight, hand laminated decorative applications, but it can also be used for small decorative castings.

Products benefits

  • Superior cast and glass reinforced mouldings
  • Solvent free & no VOC’s
  • Fire resistant
  • Lightweight
  • Impact resistant

Information

  • Shrinkage compensated material of low permeability.
  • Durable in all conditions of external weathering including water features.
  • Reduced free-lime content, with low alkalinity, leading to major reductions in efflorescence in comparison with ordinary Portland cement systems.
  • Contains a fine decorative aggregate and powder pigments, carefully controlled to give a consistent decorative surface finish after treatment with a proprietary brick cleaner or acid etch.

Available in:

Kit sizes range from 6kg to 1,200kg. A bespoke colour matching service is offered in addition to our eight standard stone finishes of Natural Stone, Bathstone, Yellow Sandstone, White Marble, Portland Stone, Silver Grey Granite, Old Terracotta and Charcoal Black.

 

AC930

Jesmonite AC930 is a rapid setting acrylic modified cementitious composite. The material is supplied as an economic alternative to AC730 and is pale grey in colour. The system is designed specifically for Glass Reinforced Cement (GRC) applications and the material conforms to BS/EN 1170 when used with alkali resistant glass reinforcements.

Products benefits

  • Low shrinkage  – excellent dimensional stability
  • High strengths compared to standard GRC
  • Very low porosity, less than 2%
  • Impact resistant
  • Fire resistant

Information

  • Shrinkage compensated material of low permeability.
  • Durable in all external weather conditions.
  • Reduced free lime content, with low alkalinity resulting in low efflorescence and higher retention of glass reinforcement strength.
  • Meets and exceeds the very highest BS/EN1170 specification for the testing of Glass Reinforced Cement.

Available in:

Standard colour is Light Grey – UV stable oxide pigments can be added to meet project requirements. This is a bulk product.
