This mold is just a bit smaller than our Extra Large version and has two ledger boards at the top and bottom that run perpendicular to the main panel. Designed to produce panels that can be mounted vertical or horizontal. The Rustic look of concrete produced in this mold can be used for wall panels, large format tile, shower walls, table tops and just about anything your creativity leads you to.
Weight: 100# Dimensions: 84.5″ X 41.25″ X 1″
Coloring of the grain is easily accomplished by using Trinic Versa Color and/ integral color.
Weight 80# Dimensions 45.5″ Diameter 2″ deep
Estimated life span with proper care = 1,000
Suggested mold release = Wax / Poly Ease/ Vaseline and mineral spirits (remove residue and clean mold after use to prevent degradation)
Composition = 74-45 urethane
USING THE MOLD:
Typically, no release agent is necessary when casting
plaster or wax in Poly 74-Series molds. For casting plaster: sponge, dip or
spray the mold with Pol-Ease® Mold Rinse and then pour plaster on the
wet mold to reduce air bubbles in the plaster and aid release.
For casting concrete, use a form release, such as Wax, Pol-Ease® 2300, 2650 or 2601.
Avoid solvent-containing releases since they can cause mold distortion
(i.e., shrinkage or swelling).
After repeated casting with certain resins, plaster and concrete, molds
may shrink slightly since these materials extract oils from the mold. The
proper selection of release agent and/or barrier coat can minimize this
effect. If shrinkage becomes evident, a light application of Pol-Ease® Mold
Dressing can help to restore the mold to its original dimensions.
Poly 74-Series molds last many years if stored undistorted on a flat, non-
porous surface in a cool, dry location out of direct sunlight. If occasional
outdoor use is required, add 0.5% UV Additive to the total mix weight to
reduce the characteristic surface degradation caused by sunlight. Never
store Poly 74-Series molds outside as UV exposure will eventually degrade
