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.

Not sure when we deliver to you? Give us a call at 1-800-272-7890 and we will be happy to let you know! Or, e-mail us at info@fgci.com and we will be happy to respond to you right away.

From everyone at Fiberglass Coatings, we wish you all a very Merry Christmas and a Safe, prosperous New Year!

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 is that 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. When adding this additive, you do 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.

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.
