made from a syntactic polymer compound with a cellular structure quite
similar to wood and may be handled much the same as wood and
stains same as
wood. There are 1000's of profiles that match their wood and
or they can be custom made.
be used for Concave and Convex Curves and Arches. Even
complex crowns mouldings with dentils can be made from for these applications.
a) Premium Grade is
flexible and lite weight
A high grade
flexible product. In some profiles there is wood grain in the molds.
A superior grade, extremely flexible; in fact one can tie panel molds in a knot.
It is 40% heavier than the Premium grade.
is a solid product with no air holes and can be machined with a router or molder
chemical mixture is
fire rated at ASTM-E84-03. It is water, rot and insect resistant, thus it is
very suitable for wet areas.
It is great for
Interior and Exterior applications. For most
profiles it is custom made per order, although certain profiles may be stocked.
profiles are available in Straight lengths. Perfect for swimming pool
applications or wet basements. For some huge radius curves
concave or convex curve is so slight that straight lengths will be supplied as
the product is flexible.
Walls: Concave and Convex
are Crowns, Baseboards, Casings, Wainscoting, and Quarter Rounds available
For tight radius
applications, consult with one of our consultants regarding the suitability of
the profile and it's ability to be created to go around
tight corners. You may
be asked to supply a cardboard template to produce the mold. You must supply us with a drawing of the application.

baseboard or quarter-rounds.

must supply us with a drawing of the arch
that you want to have made.
We require the mid point
Rise and Horizontal run measurement. We also need the various
rise measurements at 12" increments to
draw the arch on
CAD. This will provide the correct rise of the true arch or eyebrow.
In certain cases you will be required to supply
us with a cardboard
template of the arch. Tell us
if us want both sides of a door or window frame created.
Circles are actually
two mirrored arches. An example of a circle application would be a ceiling ring
to enlarge a ceiling medallion or resin to go
around a circular window
or column. You must supply us with a
drawing of the circle that you want to have
require the radius of the true circle or circumference. Tell us if us want
both sides of a door or window frame created.
Your existing Profile
require a 12 Foot piece of the profile you want to match in order to create
a mold for your molding. All custom orders are priced by our custom
association with Martin Richards Design we can create on CAD a unique custom
profile of frieze or any molding. We would need to create a custom
wood carved plug, then
molds, then the final ResinMoldTM
product. All custom orders are priced by our custom department.
order to serve you better you will be required to supply us with a drawing. For
tight radius applications we need a paper or cardboard template.
profiles the minimum order is 6 Feet with maximum lengths close to 12 Feet.
Every profile has a different length option.
do I know how much I need:
will calculate the amount of ResinMoldTM
required with a modest extra amount once we receive a drawing from you.
A written quote will
be produced and faxed or emailed to you with a payment form. We do not
take verbal order.
Remember to tell us
if you require the profile for each side of the arch or stairway.
is it installed:
a tight radius, warm up the product to allow maximum flexibility. The
minimum radius is 3 times the width of the material.
For example a
casing that is 3" wide, the minimum radius is 9"
cellular composition cuts and machines the same as wood. Any saw, router,
shaper, or molding machine may be used as needed.
It can be nailed
or pined with a nail gun without pre-drilling - the same as the wood counterpart.
On arches we recommend starting at the center and moving outwards to the ends.
is necessary to use a quality construction adhesive before nailing. Run a
continuous line of adhesive when applying.
Any glue or
adhesive that will bond to wood will bond to ResinMoldTM. The back side of each part
is sanded to create a better bonding surface.
moldings are not
always receptive to adhesive and can cause adhesion failure during installation.
Finishing: It comes primed and is
paintable & stainable
flexible molding cannot be stained the same as wood. ResinMoldTM is primed
with an all purpose, porous primer.
For best results, add a
clear glazing compound to the wood stain. Normal ratio of mixing the glazing
compound with the stain is one part glazing
liquid to two parts
of stain. Stains for synthetic products are specially made to work over these
surfaces. In doubt, always test a small section of the
moulding before staining
the entire piece.
