Whilst we have used Jesmonite in the B.15 workshop for small scale casting, it’s wider applications across the building industry are often overlooked.
From the Jesmonite website: “Jesmonite is the ultimate chameleon material of the building industry – it can be used to replicate the appearance and texture of any surface finish in any number of colours.
The combination of natural raw materials with a special blend of water based pure acrylic polymers create a unique family of materials that have a number of product benefits that make Jesmonite superior to other building materials.”
