Jesmonite grey colour samples
Posted on 9th December 2020
As part of our ongoing work with Jesmonite casting materials, we have recently created some bespoke colour options to meet a client’s request. The two samples of grey Jesmonite pictured were specially blended in our workshop to give the customer a choice to meet their building needs.
Although it is possible to colour match Jesmonite to a RAL reference, these two shades of Jesmonite grey colour were blended simply to offer our client a choice between light and dark grey to match to the stone and concrete being used in their project. The samples are shown un-etched meaning they surface texture is very smooth and slightly glossy. By acid etching the material it is possible to create a micro-textured surface finish that closely replicates the look of concrete. The benefits of using Jesmonite being that it is relatively light, long lasting and able to be moulded and patterned when cast, providing a wide range of possibilities for interior design where wall cladding, panels and ceilings need to look like concrete.
Please note: Custom colour blends may require minimum order quotas of raw material.
