What Is "Cultured Marble"
Cultured Marble is a custom manufactured material, suitable for creating flat surfaces, such as counter tops and shower walls and shower pans, as well as molded pieces, such as tubs and sinks.
We create each piece from a precise blend of polyester resin, catalyst, crushed marble, and pigments that is thoroughly mixed and placed into open molds that have been coated with a clear gel coat. The gel coat is specially formulated to produce a tough, durable, transparent surface resistant to in service wear. Wilson Marble produces cultured marble in a wide range of colors, patterns, and veining.
The chemical reaction initiated by the catalyst causes the resin to polymerize and harden, bonding the entire matrix together in a hard, strong mass. After several hours of chemical curing, the parts are removed from the molds and trimmed, ground, polished and inspected. the parts are then ready for shipment and installation.
