All About ResinMoldTM
made from a syntactic polymer compound with a cellular structure quite
similar to wood and may be handled much the same as wood and
same as wood. It is fairly rigid to touch but still flexible. There are 1000's of profiles that match their wood and
be used for Concave and Convex Curves and Arches. Even
complex crowns mouldings with dentils can be made from for these applications.
ResinMoldTM is water, rot and insect resistant, thus it is very suitable for wet
areas. It is great for Interior and Exterior applications.
profiles it is custom made per order, although certain profiles may be stocked.
profiles are available in Straight lengths. Perfect for swimming pool
applications or wet basements. For some huge radius curves
concave or convex curve is so slight that straight lengths will be supplied as
the product is flexible.

profile of frieze or any molding. We would need to create a custom
carved plug, then molds, then the final ResinMoldTM product. All
custom orders are priced by our custom department.

is necessary to use a quality construction adhesive before nailing. Run a
continuous line of adhesive when applying. Any glue or
will bond to wood will bond to ResinMoldTM. The back side of each part
is sanded to create a better bonding surface. Unsanded ResinMoldTM
always receptive to adhesive and can cause adhesion failure during installation.
Finishing: It comes primed and is
paintable & stainable
flexible molding cannot be stained the same as wood. ResinMoldTM is primed
with an all purpose, porous primer.
For best results, add a clear glazing
compound to the wood stain. Normal ratio of mixing the glazing
compound with the stain is one part glazing liquid to two
parts of stain. Stains
for synthetic products are specially made to work over these surfaces. In
doubt, always test a small section of the moulding before
the entire piece.
