Technical Bulletin
Forton® MG is a unique combination of high-strength alpha hemi-hydrate gypsum with water based polymer chemistry that is reinforced with "E" glass fiber. FMG is the first technology to make gypsum an exterior product, when painted or sealed.Forton® MG can be used for restoration and replication of natural façade materials, architectural ornamentation, decorative arts casting, flower pots and cold cast metal elements and sculpture. The casting methods are essentially the same as that used for casting in urethane or polyester resin and fiberglass. FMG can be slush cast (hollow), hand laid-up, sprayed through the proper equipment or poured for solid casts. The system is simple to use for either the beginner or the experienced user.

A variety of colors and finishes can be incorporated into the FMG face mix. UV stable liquid or dry powder pigments can be added to FMG to provide a vast range of colors. Aggregates can be added to the face mix to achieve desired texture effects when sandblasted and sealed. Metal powders can also be added to the face mix to achieve various cold cast metal effects.

- Forton MG is lightweight and easy to work with
- FMG is non-toxic, odorless and ultra strong
- Water can be used for clean-up prior to FMG set
- Class I fire rating according to ASTM E-84
- Quick demolding times
