Here are five types of edge form materials used in concrete countertop-making:
Adding an edge detail is a simple way to customize a concrete countertop and give a kitchen, bathroom, or tabletop a high-end, finished look. Edge details are created by using special edge forms while casting the countertop. Generally, the forms, or molds, are clamped onto a cabinet when pouring cast-in-place countertops. Many companies offer prefab edge forms in a variety of patterns.
Concrete countertop edges come in a variety of shapes and sizes. Because concrete will take the shape of virtually any form or mold it is cast into it's possible to produce the look of stone, rope edges, vines, and more. Here are a few resources for countertop forms & molds.
Contractors can also make edge forms themselves, creating whatever design their client desires. This can be done by purchasing molding products, such as liquid rubber or liquid plastic and casting custom molds. Also, there are companies that will create custom molds and forms for contractors. You can contact Preitech to find out more about custom mold making services.
