History of Glasscoat
Glasscoat was invented a number of years ago to be used in the industry of industrial coatings to protect steel from corrosion and concrete. Over the last 35 years Glasscoat is now specifically designed to be utilized in spas, swimming pools and other aquatic surfaces.
The utilization of corrosion-resistant, inert polymeric materials to resurface spas and pools is a breakthrough in the sense that the previous products used were made of cement-based finishes for plaster. However, the these surfaces are porous and are dissolved in pool water over time and eventually become rough, spalled, and stained.
Glasscoat isn’t subject to degradation when exposed to heated water or pool chemicals. It is therefore superior to all other materials used for resurfacing pools, including basic white marble and products like quartz finishes, and pebble aggregate-type plasters.
What Are the General Characteristics of Glasscoat?
- Waterproofing and corrosion resistance.
- Low life-cycle costs.
- Longer service life than comparable materials.
- Very little or no regular maintenance.
- Aesthetic retention for duration service life.
- Written specifications are compared with plaster.
- Outperforms all quartz and pebble materials as well as PVC Liners.
- Reduced overall operating costs.
What is Glasscoat Suitable For?
- Gunite or concrete pools and spas.
- Fiberglass pools.
- Fountains and reflection ponds.
- Water parks.
- Industrial applications.
- Other water retention storage vessels.
