Calcast 100 has been designed as a multifunctional plaster that can be used as a filler and as a material for mold making.
It can be used to create architectural and decorative ornaments, frames, textured coatings, stucco plaster and creative objects of all kinds.
This plaster is ideal for making molds. For a clay casting, for example, due to the high moisture absorption of ß plasters. Or for making molds for bronze parts.
You can also use it to pour cement and similar products, and then cut them out.
For greater mechanical strength, you can reinforce your plaster with burlap or oakum. https://www.finres-sa.com/product/filasse-de-sisal/
