Jesmonite Flex Metal Gel Coats

Posted on 27th October 2020

Imagine if you could create metallic surfaces that enhance a building’s architecture without the drawbacks of high weight and cost associated with solid metal objects. Well you can with Jesmonite Flex Metal Gel Coats! Design and Visual Concepts is an approved Jesmonite manufacturer which specialises in bespoke architectural commissions. If you have an idea for metal building decoration or design features – be it wall panels, tiles, facades, reliefs or columns, Flex Metal Gel Coats provide a great solution.

As the name suggests, the metallic surface is a coating created by mixing Jesmonite metal powders with a water-based resin, using AC730 or AC830 as a cast or laminated back up material. This provides a safe, solvent free product with no VOCs which is compliant with reaction to fire performance in accordance with BS EN 13501-1:2007+A1:2009. Further information is available on our Jesmonite mouldings page.

There are currently four types of Jesmonite Flex Metal Gel Coats finishes, Bronze, Brass, Copper, and Silver Bronze, all of which look like and behave like real metal. Ex-mould surfaces can be polished with fine grade wire wool, waxed, sealed or patinated. Importantly, as the materials are cast in a mould, it opens-up the possibilities for incorporating patterns and surface detail that would otherwise be hard to replicate.
