Dilutec (Piracicaba, Brazil) has launched a crystal polyester resin and ISO NPG gelcoat system that ensures translucency to composites parts. The material is said to be ideal for applications in the leisure sector, such as toys and waterslides.

Initially, the translucent system is being provided in greenish tint, but other colors can be formulated.
