Jesmonite AC100 Starter Kit
Jesmonite AC100 is a water-based composite material used to make decorative moulded objects. It is safe to use and contains no solvents or VOC’s. It can be cast and laminated using our unique Quadaxial Glass. Natural colour is an off white/cream
Jesmonite Pigments are aqueous dispersions compatible with Jesmonite composites. When dispersed in Jesmonite materials they offer excellent chemical stability, heat stability, and UV resistance. 2% will produce a strong, saturated colour. For lighter colours simply reduce the addition rate until the desired colour is achieved. Pigments can also be intermixed to produce any colour.
High-shear Mixing Blades are essential for the proper mixing of all Jesmonite composite materials. They are specifically designed for adding Jesmonite Base into Jesmonite Liquids. The mixing action reduces air bubbles and ensures that the mix is smooth and free from lumps.

Cast and laminated decorative mouldings, and with the inclusion of suitable glass reinforcements AC100 can be used for lightweight, high-impact panels. Jesmonite AC100 provides a fire resistant coating for many expanded foams for theme park and theatre props.
Solvent free – No VOC’s
Good abrasion resistance and impact strength
High compressive and tensile strength
Rapid curing and high early strength gain
As a basic rule liquid containers should be kept well sealed to prevent water evaporation and skin forming. They should be stored at a constant temperature between 5 – 25°C and used within twelve months. Freezing must be avoided. Base should be kept dry and stored at 5 – 25°C and used within 9 months.
