Dilutec is expanding its portfolio of gel-coats for the production of synthetic marble. The Brazilian company recently started selling Colorgel Marble, which is designed to ensure high gloss and enhanced coverage to manufacturers of sinks, tanks and washbasins, and other products.
“It took us four months to come up with the ideal formulation of Colorgel Marble," reports Marcos Brambilla, Technical Manager at Dilutec. "It is a special gel-coat not only because it provides a better finish, but also because of its lower density, a characteristic that increases product yield by 10-15% compared to traditional gel-coats.”
With the launch of Colorgel Marble, Dilutec now offers five gel-coat formulations for synthetic marble.
Dilutec also offers gel-coats for moulds, such as Colorgel Iso Molde and Colorgel Hard Shine. The latter is the most suitable for the tools used in the production of synthetic marble as it provides greater resistance to the high temperatures in the moulding process, considerably increasing the durability of the mould, says Brambilla.
