Silicone-based decorative coatings
Long-lasting, aesthetic, hydrophobic and sustainable
Architecture and decoration are integral parts of creating a beautiful and vibrant environment. To enhance the aesthetic of these projects, there are many options for decorative paint and coating. From subtle shades to bold colors, it is possible to find the perfect product for any architectural or decorative project. With a wide range of products, it is easy to find the perfect solution for any decoration needs. Let's explore the range of decorative paints and coatings available to create the perfect look for any project.
Silicone molds for concrete casting
Produce high fidelity parts with silicone solutions for concrete casting
Concrete casting stone materials or faux stone manufacturing allows you to reproduce detailed and accurate copies of designs. Faux stone, also known as cultured stone or manufactured stone, is used to create a variety of parts like stone columns and exterior wall sidings or veneers.
Silicone Architectural molding solutions
Flexible molding with new technologies for recreating the past and building the future.
Architectural molding is the art of manufacturing construction elements that resemble high value materials, such as stone, marble, and wood using concrete, gypsum, and urethane casting materials. Single stones or entire facades can be replicated simply by casting a concrete or urethane into a silicone mold. Architects and art restorers can recreate a multitude of architectural designs from antique to rusticated and patinated stones as well as simulated wood beams, and other decorative wood features using concrete or urethane. These simulated parts include faux stones, cultured marble, and faux wood that is incredibly realistic and extremely cost-effective.
Silicones for enhanced architectural and heavy-duty textiles
Silicone coatings protect technical textiles in critical applications and the harshest environments
There is an ever-increasing demand for high-performance technical fibers and textiles to meet the most critical needs. One particularly challenging area is the use of membranes and covering textiles in architectural applications to replace traditional building materials in large-scale structures. Silicone coatings are often used to reinforce construction fibers to provide high-level mechanical properties and resistance to environmental pressures, such as extreme climate variations, UV exposure, heat, fire, ageing, mechanical stress, etc.
Silicon for aluminum alloying in architectural applications
Silicon in aluminium is indispensable for architecture and decoration applications. Silicon enhances aluminum's malleability, allowing intricate shaping for ornate designs. Its corrosion-resistant properties ensure longevity, ideal for architectural elements and decorative pieces,
