External Plaster Mouldings

If you are looking for decorative features for the outside of your home, we manufacture a range of external architectural mouldings in different styles and finishes. Although they may look like external plaster mouldings, in fact they are usually made from Jesmonite – a durable modern composite material that looks and behaves like stone, meaning we can manufacture cast stone columns, cornice and friezes to almost any design.

Architectural mouldings made from Jesmonite

Jesmonite is a family of products that combine a reactive material base material and a pure water based acrylic resin with glass fibre reinforcement to add strength to cast items. By using Jesmonite, we can produce long lasting external mouldings that are durable in all conditions of seasonal weathering. Jesmonite is lightweight (compared to natural stone), impact resistant and fire resistant.

The most common type of Jesmonite we use to replicate external plaster mouldings is called AC730, an acrylic modified cementitious composite. Jesmonite AC730 is available in a variety of colours that replicate different types of stone. These include Natural Stone, Bath Stone, Yellow Sandstone, White Marble, Portland Stone, Silver Grey Granite, Old Terracotta, Charcoal Black, Cotswold Honey Stone, Brick Red and Marigold.
