PRINTED MATTER

At Australia Composite Solutions, we are the country’s leading suppliers of Acrylic One, commonly referred to as A1. Acrylic resin has become increasingly popular in the last few years, thanks in no small part to craft videos posted on social media sites and YouTube. Acrylic One consists of two components, a mineral powder that is blended with a water-based acrylic resin. A1 is environmentally friendly and has low toxicity compared to some alternative epoxy resins and acrylic resin. As such, as an acrylic resin supplier, we are proud to stock this product.

This liquid acrylic resin is incredibly easy to use, and not only is it non-toxic in its composition, but the same can also be said for the manufacturing process. It is fire resistant and highly resilient to UV degradation, essential in our country. The acrylic resin can be used indoors or out and effectively replaces GRG, GRC and GRP. It is fabulously versatile and can be used as terrazzo resin, crafts resin, and casting as well as a laminating resins. 

Although it has undoubtedly come to prominence in recent years as a crafts resin used for arts, sculptures, decorations, and theming, acrylic resin has been used for several years in building claddings and facades, as a casting resin and as a terrazzo resin. In the main, this is due to its fire-resistant and UV resistant qualities. It is also free from any solvents, doesn’t shrink after application, and has a good range of mechanical properties.

Acrylic One is an organic composite containing mineral powder, and can be sprayed or hand lamination, and its lightweight properties make it ideal for cladding. We are reputable acrylic resin suppliers and will be happy to discuss its potential uses with you, including how it should be applied and mixing ratios. Indeed, it is crucial that you carefully measure the mix, which should be one-part A1 Liquid, combined with two-parts A1 Powder. A1 should be mixed using a high shear mixer that creates a swirl.

Acrylic 1 is a superb material for cladding your outdoor spaces. It can be easily wiped down or washed without any concerns of water damage (if sealed with our A1 Sealer), and as it doesn’t degrade due to ultraviolet light, this acrylic resin is the perfect solution for your home. Of course, it can also be used inside your property, where it will look equally as impressive.

So, if you are searching for Acrylic One (A1) and have been searching for reputable acrylic resin suppliers, then look no further than Australia Composite Solutions.
