ADDITIVE

ADD-UP2 is the most recent addition to the Cristex range of Epoxy Resins, Hardeners, Adhesives and Additives which promotes adhesion between Gel and laminate. When using ADD-UP2 you do not need to abraid the surface or use a solvent wipe after the Gelcoat has fully cured. 

Designed to be used with Polyester & Vinylester Gelcoats when combined with our Elantas Resin Systems. ADD-UP2 becomes part of the Gelcoat and not a surface treatment. Additionally ADD-UP2 aids the curing process, it can also be used for Gelcoat repairs where sanding and polishing are required/necessary. 

The additive provides a speed up in curing time of the gelcoat, promoting a perfect adhesion of the Epoxy Resin applied and maintains a high gloss finish.

Lamination can start with the Gelcoat being at the tacky stage, around 1.5 hours after Gel application and up to 24 hours without any need for abrasion or solvent wipe. It is also suitable for Gelcoat repairs, Transparent /Coloured Gelcoats, sanding and it can be polished to a high gloss.

Water and chemical resistant. If you need any help with your project or need a sample please contact our office.
