Roman Stucco Cast
Roman Stucco Cast is a traditional fast setting mortar for mouldings cast on the bench. Made with traditional Roman Cement, Lime Green's casting mortar has great durability while weathering with a natural stone-like appearance. It can be used to create many masonry features, repair steps and sills or cast embellishments. You can pour Roman Stucco Cast into moulds to make realistic coping stones and man-made rock features.
At Lime Green, we make our own Roman Stucco from burnt limestone and mineral sands, not resins and acrylics, you can achieve the subtle patinas and matt finishes for a natural look. Roman Stucco Cast is poured into a mould where it will quickly set without shrinking, recreating fine details and ornate 3-dimensional shapes. And because it is made from stone, it ages and weathers like stone. Enabling you to repair work with like for like detail.Find Supplier

Wear suitable PPE, including gloves, dust mask and goggles. Do not breath the dust. Wash any dust or mixed materials off skin straight away with plenty of clean water. Wash tools with clean water.
Mix in a drum mixer or by paddle mixer, avoid creating excessive dust. Carefully add the powder to clean water, using no more than 4.5 litres per 25 kg bag. Mix for between 2 and 5 minutes until a pourable slurry consistency is achieved. Do not re-work. Do not use in temperatures less than 3ºC or over 25ºC. Roman Stucco Cast is fast setting and needs to be used before setting starts. Do not mix more than can be used within the working time of the product
Pour into a mould prepared with mould release oil, using vibration to remove air bubbles. On large pieces work green on green, do not pour more product on to a dried and set surface. Leave to set before demoulding. Initial set is temperature dependent, but normally within 15 to 20 minutes. De-moulding times vary depending on the shape and complexity of the mould.
