Jesmonite AC100 colours – examples
Posted on 12th May 2020
A commonly asked question is how to colour Jesmonite and what are the results. It’s possible to colour Jesmonite using a range of Jesmonite pigments that are added during the manufacturing (moulding) process. Jesmonite can be blended to virtually any colour and matched to a sample or RAL reference supplied by the customer. Coloured Jesmonite offers excellent chemical stability, heat stability, and UV resistance.
Below are some examples of Jesmonite AC100 in a selection of colours. Jesmonite AC100 is a water-based composite material used to make decorative moulded objects. It is suitable for internal and external use on buildings, however if used externally a sealer or suitable paint system is recommended to protect surface appearance. We also regularly work with Jesmonite AC730 – a cementitious composite resembling stone, and it is possible to colour this in a similar way. To read more about the differences in Jesmonite materials go to our Jesmonite castings page.
The natural colour of AC100 resembles gypsum plaster, which we use to manufacture GRG – a common Jesmonite alternative. The Jesmonite colour samples (pictured below) are moulded tiles for demonstration purposes, however Design and Visual Concepts is an approved manufacturer of Jesmonite and we specialise in creating architectural decorative mouldings and enrichments for the inside and outside of buildings. We can create moulded features, panels and enrichments in a variety of styles and colours to suit your project. Please refer to our Jesmonite mouldings page for further information.
