TexCrete

WHAT IS TEXCRETE?

A thixotropic, quick setting, enhanced fibre-cement blend. Mixed with a solution of FlexBond for the saturation and impregnation of CemForce to form a reinforced product that can be cast into latex or silicone moulds. Produces castings of about 4 to 8mm in thickness.

Benefits
  • Moulding of lightweight small and large intricate castings where a fine surface definition is required
  • Can also be applied to a layer of CemForce to create positive work, instead of casting into moulds
  • TexCrete is also available in a lightweight version, reducing the weight of the cured item by 50%

Q: What will happen if I demould before it is completely dry?
A: De-moulding too soon will cause the casting to crumble.

Q: How can I add colour to TexCrete?
A: There are two options when it comes to adding colour.  The first is to mix ColourCem in powder form to TexCrete and the second option is to add CreteStain once the article is dry and cured.

Q: Will CreteStain permanently colour the TexCrete article?
A: Yes, it reacts with the cement and the effect is permanent.
