Gelcoats

Polyester and Specialist Gelcoats

Tricel provide a wide range of Polyester Gelcoats throughout Ireland.

Gelcoats are applied to a mould surface to provide a protective exterior layer to a laminate, generally at a thickness of 0.75-1.25mm. Isophthalic resin, renowned for its excellent chemical and heat resistance properties is used in the manufacture of Gelcoat. This gives enhanced protection against weathering and scratch resistance.

Similar to the Topcoat range, Gelcoats are available in a range of colours as well as clear which can be pigmented to a bespoke colour. This is ideal as it helps to match the Gelcoat to the colour of the mould being created.
