Access from EThOS:
Gelcoats are required to improve the durability of boat hulls, protect the laminate from environmental assault and provide a smooth aesthetic surface finish thus giving significant added value. The material employed for this application needs to exhibit high specific stiffness, strength and toughness, excellent surface quality and cost effectiveness. Unfortunately, conventional gelcoat systems are far from being satisfactory and improvements are needed to meet the diverse requirements of marine product customers.
