Metal Fillers - Buy Jesmonite

Metal Fillers

Regular price $67.89

Metal fillers are supplied as decorative fillers for addition to AC100.

They are added to a mix with an adjusted ratio (see user guide) to optimise the filler loading level. Once objects are de-moulded and dried, the surface can be burnished with 000 Wire Wool to bring out the metallic finish.

The finished surface can then have a patina added using cold patina solutions to create the classic Verdi-Gris effect.

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
