What is Glasscoat?
Glasscoat is a reinforced polymer coating made from microglass. Originally made to protect steel and concrete from corrosion, it’s recently started being used as a pool surface with incredible results.
Compared to common pool surfaces like concrete and plaster, Glasscoat lasts longer, has a smoother, softer texture, and is easier to manage. It’s quickly becoming the go-to pool resurfacing choice for large and small pools alike.
One of the most important things to consider when getting pool resurfacing for your San Antonio pool is how long the upgrade will last for. A cheaply-done job with a cheap material will need resurfacing done again much faster.
Fortunately, Glasscoat is extremely long-lasting. On average, a Glasscoat surface has a 15-20 year lifetime. This is about twice as long as many other pool surfaces.
Smoother and softer texture
When it comes to finding that ideal pool texture, you won’t find a better option than Glasscoat. Striking the perfect balance between smoothness and stability, the surface has a similar texture to an orange peel. It has a slight give and your feet can get a solid grip without a rough feel.
The surface continues to feel like this throughout the lifetime of the material. This means no scratched feet or low risk of accidental slips even several years down the track.
Easier to manage
Another primary benefit of a pool resurfacing with Glasscoat is that your new pool surface will be much easier to manage. Many pools need regular maintenance or else they will start to break down and degrade.
Since it was initially designed to protect critical structures, Glasscoat for pools provides unmatched protection and resistance to damage. It’s difficult to stain, but easy to clean up if needed. Algae has trouble attaching to the non-porous surface, and damaging, degrading materials have difficulty penetrating it as well. And with an inert nature, it needs fewer chemicals than other surfaces to keep it in good shape.
