Discover The Technology of Aquaguard® Gelcoat
The finish on a Leisure Pool not only looks stunning, it is the result of years of research and development aimed at leading the fiberglass pool industry.
Aquaguard® Gel Coat finishes have been developed and tested by Fiberglass International (FGI) through the 1980's and 1990's in Australia. Over the years of development, the product called for exceptional chemical resistance, mechanical strength and weathering properties, especially the latter for use in exterior applications in Australia where the UV intensity is extremely high.
Aquaguard® technology is simply unique and has been subject to extensive testing programs (both accelerated and real-time) concentrating on a combination of weathering and chemical resistance. The Aquaguard® gel coats:
- Exhibit outstanding UV and fade resistance
- Provide unique shimmer and sparkle finish
- Are formulated as a one coat spray able system with excellent application characteristics. (Not only are they easy to apply in the factory, they are easy to repair if damaged.)
- Are specifically designed for swimming pool applications
As these decorative gel coats exhibit outstanding weathering and chemical resistance properties, they can be used in any "performance" area where UV, water and fade resistance are a consideration.
It is an outstanding pool finish that has endured constant testing and refinement and now boasts a full 15 year warranty against:
- Osmotic blistering
- Surface yellowing
Note that the product has been laboratory tested out to 30 years with no noticeable deterioration.
*The Aquaguard® finish includes combinations of UV protection and color pigment and this pigment like any material may be subject to minor levels of dulling over a 30-year period if exposed to direct sunlight. However, due to the highly advanced formulation and chemical blending, any dulling will be uniform in nature and can be easily refinished by applying a gel coat polish to revitalize the pool surface.
Our warranty is simply the very best you will find on any pool surface. In contrast, most manufacturers provide a very limited one year warranty or no warranty on the surface finish.
Don’t be fooled by lifetime warranty, this is in relation to the pool structure only (and is one of the great testimonial to fiberglass pools and their ability to perform over 20 or 30 years or longer). The warranty on the pool surface is just one of the many benefits that sets Leisure Pools apart.
