    standard is all resin or resin and fiberglass cold cast is resin mixed with aluminum powder now for cold cast cost of materials and molding process takes longer just my opinion cold cast is much better because when you buff it looks like metal and the powder strengthens the helmet due to the powder mixed in hope this helps
