Gelcoats & Topcoats

High Gloss Surfaces

​As Europe’s leading supplier

of Gelcoats and Topcoats, BÜFA continuously invests in the further development of its range of products and offer a wide range from premium to industrial gelcoats to our customers. 

Layers just 500-600 μm thick...

... and yet the selection of the right gelcoat is absolutely decisive for the final properties of fibre reinforced as well as cast moulded parts.

That’s why quality is so important! Weather fastness, light fastness, degree of gloss, resistance to chemicals and corrosion and, of course, the mechanical properties of a gelcoat surface essentially depend on two factors: First of all, which materials were used to formulate the gelcoat and second, how well the gelcoat is applied in practice.
