Jesmonite limited was invented in 1984. The original compound was acrylic-modified gypsum composite with is still sold to this day. It was conceived as a safe alternative to fire glass (GRP) and as a lightweight alternative to traditional building materials.
Our continued commitment to invention and problem solving over the past 30 years has resulted in a range of material solution covering a myriad of internal and external applications for use across many industries including construction, marine and film.
Why choose Jesmonite
Jesmonite is the ultimate chameleon material of the building industry – it can be used to replicate the appearance and texture of any surface finish in any number of colours.
The combination of natural raw materials with a special blend of water based pure acrylic polymers create a unique family of materials that have a number of product benefits that make Jesmonite superior to other building materials.
Strong, flexible and more durable, making it high impact resistant.
Lighter than stone, glass-reinforced concrete, sand and cement products – perfect for film sets.
Fire-resistant with a class zero fire rating, reduced smoke density and toxicity characteristics. Solvent free with no VOC’s.
Replicates the very finest detail
Water-based not solvent-based, making it kinder to the environment.
Can be pigmented to any colour or RAL reference. It can also mimic any texture and reproduce the effect of materials such as stone, metal, wood, leather and fabric.
