Plasterform Architectural Castings Now Part of the Armstrong Product Portfolio

PLASTERFORM castings are available for interior and exterior use, and they’re lightweight, yet strong, durable, and easy to install. Ceilings, walls,
moldings, columns and ornamental details can be designed using GRG
cast stone, GFRC, and FRP.

Glass Fiber Reinforced Gypsum (GRG) is a composite consisting of alpha gypsum cement and water, reinforced with glass fibers – an ideal choice as an economical, lightweight, and durable replacement for traditional plaster.

Cast Stone is an interior molded stone (IMS) composite consisting of alpha gypsum cement, pigment, aggregate, water, and polymers. With unmatched flexibility, Cast Stone offers unlimited possibilities for interior castings.

Glass Fiber Reinforced Concrete (GFRC) is a lightweight composite consisting of Portland cement, sand, aggregates, alkali resistant fiber, polymer, additives, and water. GFRC is a 1/2″ thick laminate reinforced with steel and glass fibers, resulting in a much stronger material than normal concrete.

Glass Fiber Reinforced Polyester Resin (FRP) is a composite consisting of gelcoat, polyester resin, and glass fibers. FRP will withstand the test of time. Ideal for applications in high traffic areas such as shopping centers, convention centers, churches, and airports.
