High performance gelcoats for composite swimming pool applications

  • Vibrancy
  • Durability
  • Toughness

Our AQUAGUARD™ Pool Gelcoats have long been our flagship product offering to fibreglass pool manufacturers. This leading technology has over 20 years of proven field history in demanding outdoor pool applications. Aquaguard™ gelcoats exhibit exceptional chemical and UV resistance, resulting in enduring and vibrant pools that retain colour and sevice for longer. The range comes in a series of high performance finishes – natural, shimmer and cultured - with outstanding weatherability and fade resistance properties.

Protecting pool laminates from osmotic blistering

  • Corrosion resistance
  • Improved surface profile
  • Toughness
  • Versatility

Pool gelcoats can only provide optimum durability when used in combination with high quality tie-layer and laminating resins. Our ULTRATEC™ VE Tie-Layer resin is ideally suited for the construction of barrier laminates directly behind the gelcoat in swimming pool construction. The resin rich tie layer laminate provides excellent water and chemical resistance. It also improves the surface profile and the cosmetic appearance of the final part. 

Rapid cure laminating system for the surfboard market

  • Rapid curing
  • Low colour
  • Excellent clarity

Our market leading surfboard laminating resin has been specially formulated to provide rapid glass wetting properties and rapid cure following gelation. POLYPLEX™ Hi-Lite Surfboard Laminating Resin is a medium reactivity, orthophthalic based unsaturated polyester resin, designed for use in FRP surfboard manufacturing. It is a low colour product achieving excellent clarity in cured laminates. In addition, we also supply Aerialite™ reinforcement cloth to provide strength and impact resistance crucial to manufacturing high performance surfboards. 

The ultimate solution for concrete and fibreglass pool resurfacing

  • Gloss retention
  • Rapid air release
  • Excellent flow
  • Good sag resistance
  • Chemical & UV resistance

Due to the harsh effects of the sun and use of chemicals, swimming pool surfaces can deteriorate over time. As a result of an extensive research and development program this is no longer a problem. Our FIBRETECH Pool Resurfacing Range has been formulated to offer a superior solution for the refurbishment of both concrete and fibreglass constructed pools. The range consists of four products: a vinyl ester primer for concrete pools, a vinyl ester tie-layer resin, a vinyl ester fillcoat, and a high quality topcoat based on our Aquaguard™ technology.
