Semi Dry Cast Stone Artstone photograph from BBS Brick & Stone Ltd

Semi dry is perhaps the most commonly used cast stone in the house building industry as a cost effective alternative to natural stone.

‘Artstone’ is a versatile product used for many applications including (but is not limited to) window surrounds, copings, pier caps, balustrade, bullseye windows, quoins, corbels, ashlar blocks, gable-vents, date-stones, keystones and much more.

Semi dry cast stone is a non-structural product, designed for decorative use only and is often cast using a two-part system, the facing colour sand-mix and a coarser backing aggregate for extra strength. Artstone is manufactured to the relevant British Standards BS 1217:1997, BS 5642:1983, and BS 6457:1984. It is available in a standard range of colours, however by using different combinations of cements and dyes we can offer an almost infinite colour variation to suit your needs.
