Gel Coats are a versatile and durable primary layer used in the production of composite parts.
The majority of Gel Coats are applied as in-mold coatings, used in the first step in composites part production.
In-mold Gel Coats protect the mold from abrasion and chemical attack during the remainder of the production process and provide a releasable coating to aid in de-molding operations.
Gel Coats are often the exterior coating for composite parts, providing both the colour and texture of the part.
They can range in appearance from clear shades that allow visibility of subsequent layers, to pigmented coats that can be matched to an infinite array of colours.
They also protect the parts from weathering, moisture and chemical exposure.
