DURING 1997, being a pool owner for many years, I had enough of the constant troubles keeping a marble plastered swimming pool clean and shiny.

While reverse engineering these traditional formulations, I came to realize why these products were failing under certain conditions.
After months of research, and with the help of epoxy industry experts, I started implementing the latest technologies available in the epoxy industry into new formulations. With the new formulations we were successful in overcomming the many problems relating
