 Problems of Curved Walls and Arches

 

 Before the advent of resins, craft persons used to steam wood to make it bend.

 The problem with this is that wood does not like to bend or stay in a fixed shape. 

 For real wood solutions one needs to steam the wood and microwave it after it is bent to change

 the molecular shape permanently

 

 

 

 The Solution to Curves and Arches- ResinMold®

 

 There are 1000's of profiles of casings, baseboards, quarter rounds, half rounds

 crowns and panel molds.  We can even duplicate your existing profiles with

 or without wood grains. 

 

 How to dress spiral staircases - order ResinMold baseboards, quarter rounds and half rounds

 

 How to dress Curved walls - order Flexible curved crown moulding and curved baseboards and

 1/4 rounds

 

 How to dress an arched window- order Flexible curved casings 100's of stock profiles

   ResinMold®  General Description         

     YouTube video all about ResinMold

  Brief Description 

  ResinMold® is 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 ArchPolymerTM

  counterparts or they can be custom made. 

  It can be used for Concave and Convex Curves and Arches.  

  Even complex crowns mouldings with dentils can be made from for these applications.

 

  3 grades of ResinMold®  

 

  a) Premium Grade is flexible and lite weight 

 

  b) SuperWigglyTM is a superior grade and is highly flexible;

      in fact one can tie panel molds in a knot. It is 40% heavier than the Premium grade.

 

  c) Machinable ResinMold® is a solid product with no air holes and can be machined

     with a router or molder

 

  d) Wood Grain can be ordered for certain profiles to stain match existing wood

 

 Properties  

 

  ResinMold®   chemical mixture is fire rated at Class A 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.

 

 

 Straight Lengths:

 All profiles are available in Straight lengths. 

 Perfect for swimming pool applications or wet basements. For some huge radius curves

 the concave or convex curve is so slight that straight lengths will be supplied as the

 product is flexible.

 

 

 Curved Walls:  Concave and Convex

 There are Crowns, Baseboards, Casings, Wainscoting, and Quarter Rounds

 available in ResinMold®

 

 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. 

 For large radius applications,  a template should not be necessary especially for

 baseboard or quarter-rounds.

 

 

 Arches:

 There are Crowns, Casings, Wainscoting available in ResinMoldTM. 

 You 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:

 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 made. 

 We require the radius of the true circle or circumference. 

  Tell us if us want both sides of a door or window frame created.

 

 Matching Your existing Profile

 

 We 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 department. 

 

 Creating a Unique Molding

 

 In 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. 

 

 Ordering Product:

In 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.

 For most profiles the minimum order is 6 Feet with maximum lengths close to 12 Feet. 

 Every profile has a different length option.

 

 How do I know how much I need

 

We will calculate the amount of ResinMold® 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.

 

 How is it installed  

 For 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"

 

 Cutting: ResinMold®  cellular composition cuts and machines the same as wood.

 Any saw, router, shaper, or molding machine may be used as needed. 

 

 Nailing: 

 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. 

 

 Gluing:  

 It 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 ResinMold®.

 The back side of each part is sanded to create a better bonding surface.  

 Unsanded ResinMold® moldings are not always receptive to adhesive and can cause

 adhesion failure during installation. 

 

  Finishing Notes

  It comes primed and is paintable & stainable

 

 Staining:  ResinMoldTM flexible molding cannot be stained the same as wood. ResinMold®

 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.
