The choice and quality of mould is fundamental to achieving the quality of the finished product. Moulds are fabricated in a variety of materials depending on the number of uses, the shape and profile of elements and the particular finish to be achieved. Moulds need to be uniform, sealed to prevent unsightly grout loss and free from deformation.
Moulds are typically fabricated from wood, steel, fibre glass, and synthetic rubber. Flat elements are fabricated in CCP’s state of the art carousel plant, set out by a robotic plotter with side shutters held in place magnetically.
