Forton® MG

Polymer Additive System for Alpha Gypsums

Forton® MG

Forton® MG or FMG is a four component system which consists of an alpha gypsum blended with three specialty additives. FMG is based on the VF-812 water based polymer emulsion (50% solids) and greatly enhances the physical properties of alpha gypsum products. VF-812 drastically reduces water permeability, making it suitable for both interior and exterior applications. FMG is used to make lightweight pieces that are very strong and water-resistant. Applications include making architectural elements, reproducing sculpture and special effects.

Forton® MG VF-812

Polymer Additive for Alpha Gypsum

Specially formulated, all acrylic co-polymer which cross-links with a dry melamine resin to make the Forton® MG moisture resistant and UV stable. FMG® 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, and is certified as meeting the ASTM E-84, Class A (or 1) flame rating for building materials.
