Gelcoats & Topcoats

High Gloss Surfaces

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.

Optimal for all Applications

We guarantee that our BÜFA®-Gelcoats are made solely from raw materials the behaviour of which has been tested over the long term and which have proved themselves. Users have an extensive line of gelcoats and topcoats in brushing and spraying quality at their disposal.

All gelcoats and topcoats are distinguished by good working properties such as de-airing, flow and wetting of the mould.

Optimal thixotropic properties prevent running on vertical surfaces and the reactivity of the base resins used in conjunction with the respective, especially formulated pre-acceleration ensure fast and thorough curing.
