Jesmonite AC730 Flex Metal Gel Coats + Liquid Kit (650grams)
PRODUCT DESCRIPTION Jesmonite®
AC730 Flex Metal Gel Coat is a rapid setting acrylic polymer modified cement-based composite which incorporates real metal powder to achieve a range of metallic finishes. It is designed to be brush applied into moulds with both AC730 and AC830 composites being used as backing materials with suitable glass reinforcements. It is a shrinkage-compensated material of low permeability and is durable in all conditions of external weathering. The compound is alkali free and as such is free from the efflorescence associated with ordinary Portland cement-based systems. It is supplied as two components, a water-based acrylic liquid, and a blended Base.
