Gelcoat and Flowcoat

Gelcoat is the first layer added to a mould when making a fibreglass part - It is a thixotropic resin which forms the outer layer of the finished part. With the addition of a wax solution, gelcoat becomes flowcoat which will cure in contact with air and thus is used on boat surfaces , GRP roofs etc

Here's a video that explains the difference between gelcoat and flowcoat (topcoat) and whether you can flowcoat on top of flowcoat!

East Coast Fibreglass have the UK's widest range of pre-coloured gelcoats and flowcoats to buy online or by phone with a next day delivery service available.

Please note it is not recommended to combine colored  GT-600 and GT-900 within the same project as slight shade variations can occur.
