At Apriori, we create beautiful and unique decor pieces using Jesmonite, a versatile and sustainable material. In this post, we will explore the advantages of using Jesmonite over more traditional materials like concrete and plaster.
Jesmonite is a type of acrylic-based composite material that is made from a mixture of gypsum and acrylic resin. It is versatile and can be easily molded into a variety of shapes, making it a great choice for creating decor pieces like trays, cups, jars, and other homeware.
One of the major advantages of Jesmonite over concrete and plaster is its sustainability. Jesmonite is made from natural, abundant materials and can be easily recycled at the end of its lifecycle. Therefore, Apriori Decor has zero-waste production and reuses the leftovers from Jesmonite for Terrazzo collections. It is also non-toxic and does not release harmful pollutants into the air when it is manufactured or used.
Another advantage of Jesmonite is its durability. Jesmonite is strong and resistant to cracking, chipping, and other forms of damage. It is also waterproof if sealed and resistant to staining, making it a great choice for use in the kitchen or bathroom. In contrast, concrete and plaster can be porous and prone to damage, and they can be difficult to repair if they are damaged.
Jesmonite is also versatile in terms of its finish. It can be easily tinted or colored to create a wide range of finishes, from smooth and matte to rough and textured. This makes it a great choice for creating unique and custom decor pieces. In contrast, concrete and plaster can be difficult to finish and may require specialized tools and techniques to achieve the desired result.
At Apriori Decor, we use Jesmonite to create our decor pieces because of its sustainability, durability, and versatility. We believe that Jesmonite is a superior material for creating beautiful and unique decor pieces that will last for years.
