Cultured marble is a precise blend of polyester resin, catalyst, fillers and pigments, thoroughly mixed and placed into open molds that are coated with a clear gel coat. The gel coat is especially formulated to produce a tough, durable, non-porous and shiny surface, very stain resistant and easy to maintain. The shape of the product depends on the molds used. The catalyst used will cause a chemical reaction and make the resin polymerize and harden, bonding the matrix together in a hard strong mass. After some hours of chemical curing, the products are demolded, trimmed, ground, polished and finally inspected before being installed.Cultured marble products are generally coated in the mold with a clear or colored gel coat. This outer layer provides the ultimate strength to the bonded matrix. It also makes the final product water proof, durable and resistant to chipping. Depending on the finishing process used, the gel coat also provides the shiny surface that adds luster to the final product.Because the final objects are cast in mold, the installed product has minimal seams and when installed properly, using mildew resistant 100% silicone, it becomes virtually leak proof.
In residential construction, vanity tops typically have the bowl cast as an integral part of the vanity deck, avoiding potentially unsightly seams between bowl and vanity deck.
Cultured marble products are very versatile and find applications in residential construction, multi-family housing as well as commercial.
