About cast stone

This planter is crafted from cast stone, superior to cast concrete in look and feel.  Cast stone is a concrete based building material manufactured and molded to simulate natural cut stone.  Nichols Bros.' dry cast products are made from zero slump concrete, using the Vibrant Tamp Method, in a rigid mold, until it is densely compacted.

The raw materials used in the product are Portland cement, Type I, white or gray, multi-sized aggregates of manufactured or natural sand, inorganic iron oxide pigments (when required for coloring), approved admixes (poly-plex and glass fibers) and water. 

All the the mix designs meet with the standard specifications of the Cast Stone Institute for architectural cast stone.

The mid-size and larger pieces are reinforced with galvanized aircraft cable.  Flat surfaces and rings are reinforced with rebar or non-ferrous pipe. 

 All cast stone products ship LTL common carrier.  All products are made to order and non-returnable.
