Orange Tooling Gel Coat
Extend the Durability of Molds 


Tooling Gel Coat is an abrasion resistant gel coat for making molds where gloss retention, superior hardness, exceptional craze resistance and minimum distortion are paramount. Our Orange tooling gel coat offers excellent contrast allowing you to gauge the gel coat coverage and tell the difference between your finished part and the mold. The life of a good polyester mold may be extended considerably by the use of tooling gel coat. For best results, build the film thickness to 20 -25 mils. #1040 Hi-Gloss Additive can be added to further upgrade the gloss.
Formulated for 1.5% - 2.5% MEKP.

188/69-A kit contains (1) QUART RESIN, (1) 69-A.

Black Tooling Gel Coat
Extend the Durability of Molds 


Tooling Gel Coat is an abrasion resistant gel coat for making molds where gloss retention, superior hardness, exceptional craze resistance and minimum distortion are paramount. Our #186 Black Tooling Gel Coat is often used on molds that will be used to make parts with a white gel coat. The contrast of the colors allows you to gauge the gel coat coverage and tell the difference between the part and the mold. The life of a good polyester mold may be extended considerably by the use of tooling gel coat. For best results, build the film thickness to 20 -25 mils. #1040 Hi-Gloss Additive can be added to further upgrade the gloss.
Formulated for 1.5% - 2.5% MEKP.

Duratec Clear Hi-Gloss Gel Coat Additive
Spray Gel Coat Like Paint


Duratec® Clear High Gloss Additive can be mixed in a 1:1 ratio with regular gel coat to reduce viscosity and porosity, improve gloss level, and permit a complete open-air cure. It can also be blended with a 15% ratio to tooling gel coats to upgrade mold surfaces, improve gloss retention, increase impact resistance, and reduce heat distortion.

The reduction in viscosity allows gel coats to be sprayed controllably through siphon and HVLP equipment, reducing sanding and polishing time. When used for repairs, this product will result in a low porosity surface.

When making below-the-waterline repairs on boats, for example, we recommend adding our #71 Styrene Wax to maximize hardness.

Requires 2% MEKP. 
MEKP Hardener
Industry Standard Catalyst


Methyl Ethyl Ketone Peroxide, or MEKP, is required with all polyester resins, gel coats and vinyl ester resin. It is required in different concentrations as defined for each resin product.

Each resin product is available as a kit with the correct amount of hardener. However, hardener may be purchased individually as shown here.

Styrene Thinner
General Purpose Styrene


Styrene is primarily used to thin polyester resin and gel coat before use. This is not a necessary step for the resins or gel coat on FibreGlast.com, but simply a preference for handling purposes.
  • When added to polyester resin, it enables and speeds the resin infusion process for vacuum bagging.
  • Fabricators may thin gel coat 2–5% with styrene to make them more suitable for heavy spray equipment.
 
Styrene Wax
Get a Complete Cure


Add Styrene Wax to non-waxed polyester resin and gel coat to prevent the prolonged tackiness associated with thin sections of polyesters in your composite.

This Styrene Wax is a 5% paraffin dissolved in styrene. When paraffin is added to resin, the wax will rise to the surface and protect the curing resin from the inhibiting action of the air. Once the resin is allowed to fully cure, it must be sanded off prior to any additional applications. Any paraffin on the surface will prevent adhesion of further coats.

Mix #71 at 5% for thin coatings—approximately one to two tablespoons for every pint of resin. When performing repairs below the water line, use with #1040 Hi-Gloss Additive.
