What is a waterfall matrix? The definition of a matrix has many meanings and for our purpose it is a specialized mold to cast real waterfall rock formations and capture their spectacular beauty. Then different polymers are used in combination for strength, durability and lightweight properties for the ultimate garden waterfalls, prefabricated rock ponds and accent rocks and boulders for water gardening purposes.
What are polymers? Polymers are a huge group of synthetic materials like paints, plastics, resins, rubber and the list is very extensive and goes on for ever. Polymers while having certain key advantages also have some disadvantages. However by combining certain polymers together like polyurea and polyurethane foam we can fabricate the perfect backyard waterfalls.
What is polyurea? Polyurea in a simple explanation is a spray applied coating that displays many super qualities. Polyurea has an extremely long service life, tensile strength, puncture and resistance, great for temperatures up to 300 degrees while still being ideal for cold temperatures all excellent qualities for an awesome garden waterfalls. While showing superior strength to cement in a press applied test its many uses are for coatings, liners, containment, flooring etc, etc... One small disadvantage from being a sprayed material is its flexible and needs a backing like polyurethane foam which make an awesome patio and swimming pool waterfalls.
What is polyurethane foam? Polyurethane foam in the fabrication process of these custom made backyard waterfalls is as a backing with excellent light weight properties while making these waterfalls very user freindly and easy to work with.
The next part of the manufacturing process is the coating made from natural oxides including rock and sand. These custom made waterfalls made with polyurea, polyurethane foam and natural oxides is the manufacturing process of Universal Rocks and is proprietary information only for cool rock waterfalls and prefab ponds for your home's landscape.
