WHAT IS WINTERSTONE?

WINTERSTONE is a dry, white powder mix --- a complex multi-component cementitious mixture --- which, after mixing with water, produces a workable material which eventually sets as hard as stone.  The inclusion of proper reinforcing elements produces a structurally efficient composite material that can be shaped into any complexity of form.  The hardened Winterstone surface can be refined with abrasives and polished.  It can be integrally pigmented or externally patinated.  The finished Winterstone product is intrinsically weather stable and may be placed in an indoor or outdoor environment that, properly maintained, will last decades in any weather.

There are 3 different Winterstone mixes each with its own unique properties for different applications (see details below):
