Gemstone Plus®

GSP-Featured

Gemstone Plus® filled and polished face units provide the dramatic look and finish of terrazzo, all in the face of a colored architectural CMU.

The unit faces are ground to expose the beauty of the natural aggregates. Then, polymer-modified cementitious grout is used to fill the pores of the unit. Next, the unit faces are highly-polished. Finally, a clear satin gloss, heat-polymerized, acrylic is factory-applied to enhance the natural beauty of the aggregates. This acrylic finish provides additional moisture resistance.

Gemstone Plus® units are designed to meet ASTM C 744 specifications for Prefaced Concrete and Calcium Silicate Masonry Units.
