Need a special Gelcoat color?

fgci color chart copyWhen talking gelcoat, the most important aspect is the color. Everyone has their preference, and Fiberglass Coatings has a wide range of stock colors you can find on a daily basis. Did you know that we can match gelcoat for you, though? That’s right, we can take a sample you provide and make a gelcoat that will perfectly match your needs.

We have many customers who need to fix a blemish in the side of a boat, or even a pool. They need the gelcoat to match exactly. With gelcoat, it can fade in the sun and fun of Florida, so getting a factory color is not always an option. It may not match exactly and make a blemish stand out even worse. This is why we use a photospectrometer to match the gelcoat to a perfect match for you.

One of the more amazing products we carry is a brushable Gelcoat. This gelcoat is designed to be an easy way to re-apply gelcoat for fixing blemishes. When you order your colormatch, we can make a standard exterior gelcoat, or a brushable gelcoat. Be sure to check with your rep about what you need!

There are a few different ways to get us the color you need. The easiest way is to send us a sample, like a hatch or chip of gelcoat to match. You can mail it to

Fiberglass Coatings

4301 34th St. N.

St. Petersburg, FL 33714

You can also bring the sample in to one of our two showrooms in Florida. Now, if you don’t have the ability to send us a sample, I generally recommend going to a store that has color samples and picking out the closest one to send to us and have us match that.

If you just can’t find what you want, we also sell the neutral gelcoat and pigment jars to tint your own gelcoat! Let us know how we can help!

Holiday Schedule

Holiday-seasonIt’s that time of year again! As families gather, and food is cooked, we wanted to take a minute to go over our delivery schedule for the end of the year.

Christmas falls on a Monday, this year. All locations will be closed on Monday, the 25th and will reopen on Tuesday, December 26th. We will also be closed on Monday, January 1st, for New Years day. All locations will be back in the swing of things in 2018.

If you are in the state of Florida, then there is a really good chance we can deliver product to you. For the last two weeks of the year, the normal schedule has changed slightly.

If you get deliveries from our St. Petersburg corporate office on Mondays, then your delivery date will be pushed back to the previous Friday. So, the 22nd, and the 29th, respectively.

If you get deliveries from our Ft. Lauderdale location, then your delivery day has been pushed to Tuesday.

Wherever you are, we look forward to getting your product to you as soon as possible.

Product Spotlight: Duratec High Gloss Additive

123754-lrgAt Fiberglass Coatings, we have all the tools, materials and knowledge to help you with your job, whether it being a large commercial job, or just doing a project around the house. With that in mind, we are spotlighting a product we have had around for a long time, but not everyone knows about; Duratec High Gloss Additive.

This gelcoat additive is useful for several different reasons. The first, when adding this as a 50/50 mixture will not only produce a high-gloss, paint-like finish, but it will also thin the gelcoat without adding a yellow tint, like Styrene can do. This is why we recommend this product for thinning while spraying. In the process of adding this additive, you will not need to add Sanding Aid, as this would be the final coat. The only difference is that you will want to wait a full 24 hours before buffing to ensure the gelcoat has fully cured. In order to get a hi-gloss finish, 600 grit paper or higher, will be needed to sand, then buff with Aqua Buff 2000 Compound.

Another benefit of this product is eliminating porosity in tooling gelcoat. When you add this product as a 25% mixture, not only will it add an extra gloss to your tooling gelcoat, it will eliminate the porous surface by over 20 percent, allowing the surface to be waxed easier, and your part to pulled with less effort.
