Orange Tooling Gel Coat
High Gloss and Superior Hardness for 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. One gallon of gel coat will cover approximately 40-80 sq ft. #1040 Hi-Gloss Additive can be added to further upgrade the gloss.
Formulated for 1.5% - 2.5% MEKP.

Once in place it sands and polishes nicely as after a full cure its rock hard and stable.
Challenging to pour cleanly from can so if working many small batches get a pump.
After straying, and trying a cheaper competitors equivalent product, I will not attempt mold construction again without FibreGlast's genuine Orange Tooling GelCoat. There really is NO COMPARISON!
