We are the largest and only local producer of composite resins such as unsaturated polyester and vinyl ester resins, gelcoats and flowcoats. Our materials are used in a diverse range of composite applications and products such as swimming pools, boats, truck bodies, tanks, roof sheeting, pipelines and many more.  We pride ourselves on offering the region’s most comprehensive product portfolio and are introducing the newest addition to our product line: POLYPLEX™ SURFBOARD LAMINATING RESIN.

POLYPLEX™ SURFBOARD LAMINATING RESIN is a medium reactivity, orthophthalic-based unsaturated polyester resin, designed for use in FRP Surfboard constructions and has been specially formulated to provide rapid glass fibre wetting properties, low colour and rapid cure rates following gelation. The resin is non-thixotropic, UV stabilised and pre-promoted for ambient temperature curing using MEKP catalyst. POLYPLEX™ SURFBOARD LAMINATING RESIN has been specially designed to make the surfboard appear brighter upon cure and forms part of the new grade of acrylic modified resins with lower styrene levels and improved UV resistance properties.

Product properties to the POLYPLEX™ SURFBOARD LAMINATING RESIN include:
  • Fast gel and cure properties
  • Specially formulated cure system
  • Lower styrene content
  • Improved UV resistance
