What is moldings?
Molding is a type of material image strip that emerges from the wall surface with various cross-sections. This image strip creates transitions between wall surfaces or decorates the junction between the ceiling and the edge wall.
Cornices are larger than just the size. Cornices can be made from many different materials, made separately into strips with different lengths. On the cornices decorated with many different textures and colors. Meanwhile, molding ridges emerge, ranging in size from 1.5-3 cm (depending on decorative size). Lying under or around the decorative cornices for walls or ceilings to be less monotonous and empty.

Sort by material
1. Gypsum molding
Gypsum molding is made from the main raw material is gypsum, often used a lot in ceiling decoration as well as facades. This is the first traditional formwork used for construction, created by available molds with rich patterns and diverse designs at low prices.
However, modern moldings are gradually replacing gypsum because it has the problem of being prone to water penetration and breaking owing to weather changes. Their colors are very limited, usually being all white, making them susceptible to staining and yellowing with time.
2. Wood moldings
Molding made from wood is often used as ceiling and wall molding. Wood moldings are known as environmentally friendly materials, which are highly appreciated by designers and users.
However, the drawback of this type of molding is that it is easily affected by weather factors, which leads to mold, termites, cracks and warping.
3. PVC moldings
PVC molding is made of Polyvinyl Chloride plastic – This is an odorless plastic that exists in solid form and has a white or amber color.
This form of molding is waterproof, non-moldy, and non-warping. PVC products are resistant to good impacts due to the tough plastic substance, and are considered to be among the most durable products on the market.
Due to the hardness of the PVC molding material, it is difficult to bend and cannot be done in arched or circular positions. They’re also fairly hefty, making construction and transporting more challenging. PVC moldings have a limited number of designs.
4. PU moldings
PU molding is made from high-quality Polyurethane material and processed on current sophisticated lines, resulting in a high-quality product that is widely used. They’re made of soft foam sponge plastic and can be used to adorn bends.
Because PU molding only solves the shortcomings of other types and has certain notable advantages, such as user safety and good air purification, it is widely employed.
In addition to the benefits of flexibility and convenience of manufacture, PU molding has the disadvantage of requiring a coating stage in the finishing stage. Furthermore, the quality of the surface polish as well as the coating’s endurance are not appreciated.
5. PS moldings
Made from PS hard plastic according to a standard process, it has outstanding advantages in terms of water resistance, moisture resistance, and warping, maintaining the beauty of the space. Diverse in models, designs as well as colors suitable for many different architectural styles to bring harmony, elegance and sophistication to your home.
The high aesthetic finish of this kind is a significant advantage; the product is exceptionally sharp with a wide range of color options, and there is no need to paint an additional layer in the interior finishing stage, as with PU molding.
However, because the PS plastic molding’s major structural component is made of plastic, it usually can’t withstand a lot of force.
GRC is a novel construction material made from fine aggregate concrete, cement, clean sand, clean water, alkali resistant fiberglass, and plasticizers, and created by injection molding or machine injection. This type is quite diverse in design and style since it is molded, and the pattern details are precise, delicate, and entirely consistent with each other. That is a benefit that only GFRC can provide.
The moldings’ features and patterns are clearly and consistently created to convey sophistication, elegance, and beauty. GRC molding is an excellent choice for current design projects since it can create sharp and delicate lines using the molding method.
GFRC molding chisel is a versatile material, manufactured exactly like the actual details, in accordance with the requirements of each project. It is the ideal solution for construction projects that require meticulous decorative details.
- It is very resistant to water, not moldy, termites as well as warping in harsh weather conditions. The GFRC/GRC molding is suitable for exterior construction with good moisture resistance, high durability, little impact on the external environment, saving on replacement or maintenance costs, and helping homeowners save costs when building.
- The bearing capacity, bending resistance, compression resistance and water resistance of this material are very high, so the production of large-sized molding products will not cause surface cracks.
- GFRC/GRC molding can be used to decorate the corners of buildings with complex and sophisticated designs because this material can create all shapes, patterns, and sharp designs that bring out the beauty of construction.
