The setting time can be anything between 50 minutes and 2 hours, depending on temperature in the room.

Jesmonite Acrylic Sealer is the most appropriate sealer for Jesmonite AC100 surfaces. The Jesmonite Acrylic Sealer is a pure acrylic coating. We recommend applying the Jesmonite Acrylic Sealer onto Jesmonite AC100 surface with a dense foam roller rather than low density foam and traditional paint rollers. The low density foam and traditional paint rollers can leave streaks where the Jesmonite Acrylic Sealer builds up unevenly on the ends of the rollers.

The Jesmonite Thixotrope is added to the Jesmonite AC100 mix to thicken the material to a ‘gel-coat’ consistency. This is useful when brushing or spraying materials onto moulds with vertical faces as it prevents the material from slumping. Jesmonite Thixotrope is added to the complete Jesmonite AC100 mixture and is mixed in using the Jesmonite High-Shear Mixing Blade. Add drop by drop until the desired consistency is achieved. Typical inclusion rates by weight are 2g–6g per kg (0.2-0.6%) of complete Jesmonite AC100 mix.
