Bright Topcoat

Bright Topcoat

Gelcoat is applied directly to the mould before the glass is laid up using resin. It is a thickened and usually pigmented resin intended to give a good hard wearing finish. Topcoat, also known as flowcoat is used to provide a good finish to the inside of the moulding covering the rough glass surface. The point is gelcoat is air inhibited meaning the surface will remain tacky if left open to the air so it can't be used as a paint type coating. Flowcoat has wax added to prevent the surface tackiness, the only problem being the wax will prevent any further layers adhering.

Properties:   High level of chemical and heat resistance characteristics, very smooth, excellent brightness. Can be produced brush type or spray type.

Applications:  Coating the outer surface of bijouteri materials and buttons
