Matrix Dryve™ is a versatile all-powder polymer modified gypsum system that has superior physical and performance properties compared to regular gypsum products. It is an “all-powder” alternative to our original Matrix™ NEO powder/liquid system.
The mix ratio of Dryve™ is 3 parts Dryve™ powder to 1 part water by volume (100 parts Dryve™ powder to 27 parts water by weight). Dryve™ is easy to use and can be cast solid, slush cast, rotationally cast, laid up by hand with chopped glass fiber or sprayed. Fully cured pieces are strong, water-resistant and can be painted, sanded, machined and more.
Dryve™ certifies to the highest flame rating (UL-94V-O / ASTM E-84 - Class A), making it suitable for public space applications including creating themed environment elements, architectural elements, sculpture and more.
Versatility – Dryve™ can take you in many creative directions by allowing you to make a variety of finish effects including different colors, metallics, glitters, stone and more (see Creating Finished Effects section).
