Gelcoat gives good foundation for GRP parts.

Storm king Plastics Ltd, a UK manufacturer and trade supplier of high quality moulded GRP parts used nationally for residential building construction, has chosen a spray gelcoat to enhance the weatherability and durability of its products.

The company, which is spread across the three production sites in Tamworth, Staffordshire, specialises in producing highly visible, finished GRP parts for residential building construction, including entrance canopies and porticos, doors, bay window roofs, dummy chimney stacks, finials and gable ends.

Storm king says as part of an on-going product innovation and quality improvement programme, it specified the use of Crystic LS 96PA spray gelcoat from Scott Bader for all its glass reinforced plastic (GRP) residential products.

Crystic LS 96PA is a filled low styrene isophthalic spray gelcoat, which Scott Bader says has a proven track record in use for providing reliable long term performance for external and internal GRP parts used in building, transport and general industrial applications. The technical team at Stormking says it selected Crystic LS 96PA due to a combination of its good handling properties, being a robust, filled-spray gelcoat which can be evenly applied with an airless spray system, alongside its proven long-term weathering performance for UK building applications.
