Crystic Gelcoat 252PA is a pre-accelerated, isophthalic gelcoat designed as an in-mould gelcoat with excellent adhesion to epoxy resins without the need for a tie-coat. Formulated for brush application.
Polyester Pigment must be used for pigmentation.
Crystic Gelcoat 252PA is designed for use with wet lay and vacuum injected epoxy systems. If 252PA is used as a gelcoat with polyester laminating systems, then adhesion failure is likely to occur. Similarly if 252PA is double gelled, then this is also likely to lead to adhesion failure. For these reasons, neither of these procedures is recommended.
It is not recommended for use in any application which is subject to continuous immersion in water. It is also not recommended for epoxy pre-pregs.
Features and Benefits
Crystic Gelcoat 252PA has good epoxy bonding characteristics and excellent weather resistance. It has been shown to give a robust, reliable bond with a number of wet lay epoxy resin systems, but users should check with their specific epoxy system supplier or perform a test themselves before proceeding with use.
