Reconstituted Stone or Cast Stone is popular as a durable and cost effective alternative to natural stone in architectural applications. Architectural cast stone elements such as window sills, heads, window and door surrounds, wall cladding, pier caps, wall coping, string course, quoins, steps, planters and seats offer the same impressive performance as precast concrete but with the added prestigious aesthetic qualities of stone.
It is a beautiful material reflecting the high standards of durability associated with natural stone. The amazing variety of aesthetic qualities created by the textures and subtle colourings give Reconstituted Stone considerable advantages over other materials.
Cast stone offers the designer a wide palette of pigments from which to work. The acid etching process exposes mica, giving a beautiful finish similar to natural stone. Surface treatments such as polishing and bush-hammering further help to complement modern, classical and rustic aesthetics.
