USG Hydro-Stone® Gypsum Cement is especially suitable where high strength and resistance to water absorption are necessary. It is ideal for applications in both the tooling & prototyping and art & statuary categories.
USG Hydro-Stone® Gypsum Cement — For Tooling & Prototyping
USG Hydro-Stone® Gypsum Cement is ideal for stretch-press dies where extreme surface hardness is required. Offering greater expansion than USG Hydrocal® A-11 or B-11 gypsum cements, USG Hydro-Stone® Gypsum Cement:
Features a heavy, syrupy consistency, ideal for pouring into solid models or patterns (and making it ideal for filling multiple molds simultaneously)
Adapts to most flexible moulding compounds, due to its high absorption resistance
Sets in 17-20 minutes, after machine mixing
Requires 32 parts water by weight per 100 parts plaster.
NOTE — For best storage results, keep indoors in a dry, stable environment, away from drafts. Do not stack more than two pallets high.
USG Hydro-Stone® Gypsum Cement — For Art & Statuary
One of the hardest and strongest USG Hydrocal® products, USG Hydro-Stone® Gypsum Cement is used in the fabrication of high-quality art novelty and statuary castings. Offering excellent paintability, USG Hydro-Stone® Gypsum Cement:
Can duplicate extremely fine details
Works well in plaster and most flexible moulding compounds
Is self-leveling, with low viscosity
Provides fast set time for quick mold turns
