With the mould maintenance phase now concluded, much of the Brazilian composites sector is now turning to the beginning of the swimming pool manufacturing season. 

Dilutec, a reference in gelcoats for this type of application, believes that demand this year should exceed that recorded last year.

”We feel more confident. Even though the economy is not booming as we expected, there is a certain optimism in the air, especially with the reduction in interest rates,” said Marcos Pannellini, Dilutec’s Commercial Manager.

At the plant operating in Senador Canedo city, Dilutec manufactures three types of swimming pool products: blue and white Colorgel ISO/NPG – other colors can be formulated to order –, the vinyl ester Colorgel Chemical Barrier, based on vinyl ester resin, and Colorpatch, an additive for pool refinishing and restoration – it is also used in converting conventional pools into composites.

“The pool market is strategic for Dilutec, so we have been preparing for this moment since the beginning of the year.”
