Jesmonite Flex Metal mould-cast wall tiles

Posted on 6th May 2020

Jesmonite Flex Metal Gel Coats are a system formulated to produce real metal finishes in moulded objects which are both decorative and durable. They are available in four finishes: Bronze, Copper, Brass, and Silver Bronze and are used in combination with AC730 as a backing material. The metallic surface can be waxed, sealed or have a patina applied just like real metal.

We recently produced some moulded wall tiles for a client using Jesmonite Flex Metal Bronze. As you can see from the pictures, the Jesmonite moulds included grain and texture in the surface to add visual appeal. The mould was purpose-made to the customer’s specification. Each tile was lightly buffed after casting to enhance the shine of the real metal particles used in the manufacturing process.

The end result is tiles that look and feel exactly like bronze but weigh significantly less and offer better durability. These Jesmonite Flex Metal mould-cast wall tiles are going to furnish a luxury London apartment, where the bronze wall will provide a subtle but premium finish to the décor. Feasibly these could be used internally or externally, with the surface either left to patinate or sealed to preserve its present state.
