Glasscoat delivers a beautiful, clean, sparkling look. Its tile-like, stain-resistant finish permanently remedies a dull, lackluster appearance, and instantly improves the pool’s appeal.
The non-abrasive surface of a Glasscoated pool or spa is softer on your feet and is not as rock-hard as concrete or pebble finishes. Glasscoat has a texture similar to an orange peel, with just enough texture for grip so that it is not slippery when wet.
The standard Glasscoat finish is white. It is blended with UV stabilizers which inhibit sun fading and is easy to match if ever a repair needs to be made. However, Glasscoat can also be professionally blended with custom pigments to match virtually any color in the visible light spectrum.
Glasscoat is a long-lasting solution to pool surface problems. It eliminates other materials’ need for acid washing, painting, or replastering. A nonporous Glasscoat finish is not subject to degradation like traditional materials, including vinyl liners.
Glasscoat can be applied over the top of aluminum, concrete, Fiberglass, plaster, PVC, and steel. It can also be used on vessels not suitable for traditional materials.
Glasscoat bonds especially strongly to Fiberglass and cementitious surfaces. It will not peel or flake like paint products or other inferior coating materials. “Pop-offs” associated with replastering are avoided.
Low life-cycle cost means Glasscoat does not require periodic maintenance.
The expected service-life of Glasscoat is 15 to 20 years, compared to plaster’s typical 7 to 12-year average lifespan in pools and 3 to 5-year average lifespan in hot water spas. It can considerably lower chemical usage, reduce maintenance costs, and extend the service-life of pools and spas, thereby providing a good return on investment (ROI).
On completion of Glasscoat application, start-up is far less expensive, complicated, and time-consuming than following a pool replaster. It is effectively a plug-and-play system. There is no need to carefully balance chemicals or brush the interior pool surfaces at least twice daily for 28 days to remove plaster dust and prevent the scaling of the surfaces.
