How They're MadeThe Process
Our mouldings begin life as a block of high density EPS that has been treated with bromine to ensure that it does not burn and cannot contribute to the spread of a fire.
The required profile is produced in AutoCAD and the mouldings are cut from the EPS block using a CNC hot wire machine.
The mouldings are first coated in a purpose made acrylic resin cement that provides a strong but flexible layer. This material doesn't require reinforcement mesh.
After 24-48 hours in the drying room a second layer is applied that provides a uniform finish to the moulding. It is returned to the drying room again to cure.
Finally a high build topcoat is applied that improves the aesthetics of the moulding and provides a waterproof finish. 24 hours later the moulding is ready for dispatch.
Once installed the moulding can be simply painted in an acrylic or silicone paint or treated to a thin coat render or stone effect coating.
