What We Offer

MG 536/W 503 150ᵒC: This gel coat is suitable for application in small and medium
moulds with Epoxy pre-pregs. This gel coat is a thixotropic two-component epoxy system
with a high thermal and chemical resistance. The process is to brush on a thick layer and
then allow to cure at room temperature, however the curing process can be accelerated by
the use of moderate temperature (35-40ᵒC).

MG 536/K 58/180ᵒC: This gel coat is suitable for large size moulds and tools and heat resistant moulds
up to 180ᵒC. This gel coat is a thixotropic two-component Epoxy system with a high thermal
and chemical resistance. The process is to brush a thick layer and then allow to cure at
room temperature however, the curing process can be accelerated by the use of moderate
temperature (35-40ᵒC).
