Jesmonite® AC300 is a water-based, two-component, acrylic polymer/mineral resin system. The system is suitable for a wide range of casting and laminating applications where the end user wants to reduce the many risks associated with conventional solvent based systems.
A range of ancillary products including decorative and functional fillers, control chemicals, pigments, and glass reinforcements are also provided making the material extremely versatile. The material is designed for internal use only.
The material is an economic alternative to Jesmonite AC100 where external durability is not essential.

The material provides users with a water-based alternative to standard Glass Reinforced Polyester for rigid moulds and tooling.
Bulk supplied material to reduce costs and maximise transport efficiency.
General purpose material with a wide range of applications.
As a basic rule liquid containers should be kept well sealed to prevent water evaporation and skin forming.
They should be stored at a constant temperature between 5 – 25oC and used within six months.
Freezing must be avoided. Base should be kept dry and stored at 5 – 25oC.
