Presta Gelcoat Compound

Presta Marine Gel Coat Compound is the perfect compound for marine and industrial applications. Gel Coat Compound is a VOC-compliant, water-based product. This easy-to-use and easy-to-clean-up formula significantly reduces manufacturing and buffing time. It removes P1000 or finer sand scratches and medium to light oxidation. Gel Coat Compound quickly leaves a deep high-gloss finish without the use of waxes, silicones or fillers.

    “I love fiberglass coatings. They have great products and excellent advice. I'm trying to open a boat repair shop in St . Mary's, GA and my supply WILL come from fiberglass coatings. When I lived in the Fl. Keys for 36 years and worked for a towing and salvage Co for 15 years all our supplies came from Fiberglass coatings. Great service and never were disappointed. Keep up the great job everyone.”

    “Been working on a skiff project and using all FGCI products. They came highly recommended by my friends who are boat builders. It is the highest quality resins, glass, and gelcoat for the money. They made it really easy for a newer person to boat building. The customer service is phenomenal and they are always knowledgeable and ready to help with any questions I had.”
