Chopped Strands - Buy Jesmonite

Chopped Strands

Regular price $23.80


    • Used in reinforcing resins, thermoplastics and gypsum. Ideal for awkward areas in mould making where mat lifts up.
    • Chopped strands - suitable to use as additive to polyester resins to make a glass reinforced putty like compound for those very difficult to laminate areas.
    • 6mm or 12mm chopped strands have excellent secondary bond properties and are extremely tough.
    Q. Which material do I need?
    • AC100 is perfect for pouring into a mould and for internal use 
    • AC200 is softer and ideal for carving 
    • AC300 can be used the same as AC100 but has a lower polymer content for cost sensitive projects 
    • AC730 is primarily a laminating material to be applied in layers. Best when a stone effect is required, for internal or external use 

    Q. What else do I need?
    • It is recommended when casting something long and flat, like a table top, to use our Quadaxial Matting 
    • If casting something more intricate with curves then our Chopped Strands are recommended 
    • We highly recommend using our High Shear Mixing Blade which has been specifically designed for Jesmonite to avoid bubbles in the mix 
    • If you're using a mould made of anything other than silicone, we advise you to use our Bonda Wax Release Agent 

    Q. What is the natural colour of Jesmonite?
    • AC100, AC200 and AC300 cure with a colour of off white/cream. We have a range of pigments available. 

    Q. Is Jesmonite GRC (Glassfibre Reinforced Concrete)?
    • Yes Jesmonite is classified as GRC (Glassfibre Reinforced Concrete). Due to its unique polymer content, versatility, being non-combustible and having much faster curing times than other GRC's, it is classed as a premium GRC product 

    Q. Can I add other materials to the mix?
    • Yes you can. However we cannot guarantee the outcome 

    Q. How much material do I need?
    • This all depends on dimensions, thickness, etc. As a guide for you to be able to calculate how much you need, at 10mm thick 18kg of material will make 1sqm 

    Q. Can I become a reseller?
    • Jesmonite Australasia is a standalone/independent company that promotes/sells the Jesmonite® range of products to architects, designers, manufacturers and end users. Due to the terms of our Distribution/Supplier contract, we do not sell Jesmonite® via re-sellers 

    Q. Do you also manufacture?
    • There are two parts to our company;
    1. Jesmonite Australasia which handles sales and distribution of Jesmonite products
    2. HGN Design which is an approved manufacturer of Jesmonite providing a full decorative architectural moulding and glass reinforced laminates manufacturing solution
