Resins > Unsaturated Polyester Resins > Gel Coat Resin

GEL COATS ARE PREPARED FROM A BASE RESIN AND ADDITIVES. ADDITIVES ARE THIXOTROPIC AGENTS, FILLERS, PIGMENTS AND OTHER. THE GEL COAT, AS THE NAME IMPLIES, HAS A GEL TEXTURE. THIS MAKES THE GEL COAT CAPABLE TO "STAY" ON VERTICAL SURFACES OF MOLDS WITHOUT DRAPING. IT IS PLACED FIRST IN THE MOLD, SO IT BECOMES THE OUTER SURFACE OF THE CONSTRUCTION. IT IS USED TO REPLACE PAINT, FOR COSMETIC PURPOSES, AND TO PROTECT FROM THE ENVIRONMENT.
