Forton MG

Forton MG is a unique combination of high-strength alpha hemi-hydrate gypsum with water based polymer chemistry that is reinforced with "E" glass fiber. FMG is the first technology to make alpha hemi-hydrate gypsum an exterior product.

Applications for Forton MG include solid or hollow architectural ornamentation, restoration and replication of natural materials, decorative arts casting and cold cast metal.

While the basic color of Forton is white, it can be pigmented with water-base pigments in order to achieve a variety of effects, including a very convincing "marble." Metal powders may be added to the Forton producing a superior metallic finish which may be painted in the same manner as any cold-cast metal. Mixing to match the colors our clients desire is our specialty at WDI


Forton MG FMG

This non-toxic, ultra strong, very hard, weatherproof and odorless material is essentially cast using the same process as that used for casting in urethane or polyester resin and fiberglass. FMG can be slush cast (hollow), hand laid-up, sprayed through the proper equipment or poured for solid casts.

Forton MG is an easier product to work with than resins, making casting less time consuming to complete. Repairs are also easier to make when using FMG versus a casting made of polyester resin or epoxy.

An additional advantage is that, unlike polyester and epoxy resins, FMG may be cast directly into an alginate mold to produce a casting with extraordinarily fine detail. From a health and safety standpoint FMG is considerably less hazardous than resins and FMG has a Class 1 fire rating according to ASTM-84.
