Hi All,

I am wondering what you would recommend as a reusable casting deck. I am new to GFRC concrete (actually concrete in general), only having delivered two kitchens, two bathrooms and a couple of benches and panels. 

I have tried:

  • Hot-rolled black steel - damage to the surface from clays, cements, acid wash, even some types of silicone has pretty much knocked this on the head.
  • Melamine - single use and difficult to keep in a pristine condition before use.
  • Velvet carcass (Laminex product) - better than melamine, but not really suitable for reuse.
  • Glass - great result but expensive and I only get a few uses before the scratching becomes too much.

I am wondering if some of my processes are wrong, or need some tweaking, as the consumable side of the business is proving to be expensive.

I live in Queensland, Australia.
