We have received tons of inquiries about the difference between rubber concrete stone veneer molds and plastic concrete stone veneer molds.  There are companies pushing the opinion that plastic molds will create the exact same stones as rubber molds at half the cost.  This is absolutely NOT true.
 
The difference between plastic and rubber molds is very simple to understand:
 
  • Rubber Molds start out as a LIQUID that hardens and forms to EVERY detail, grain and undercut of the natural stone they were made from.

  • Plastic Molds starts out as a SOLID that is heated and warped, via a vacuum, into the MUTED SHAPE of a natural stones surface.
