Brazilian reference in gelcoat and thinner, Dilutec completes 23 years

Dilutec, one of the leading manufacturers of gelcoat and thinner in Brazil, celebrates 23 years this month. Among the reasons for the celebration is the permanence of the excellent level reached in 2017, a year in which, despite the economic crisis faced in Brazil, the company grew 30%.

“The first months of 2018 indicated some turbulence due to the higher prices of the raw materials we process, such as polyester resins. However, we have been managing to keep up with the volumes estimated for the period,” said Evair Tozzi, managing partner of Dilutec. 

Tozzi also highlights the market’s good acceptance of the latest product introduced by Dilutec in March, Colorgel® FR LE. It is a gelcoat that complies with the plastics flammability standard UL 94, in the V-0 classification, and is characterized by the low emission of volatile organic compounds (VOC) in the atmosphere, such as styrene monomer. 

In the thinner area, Dilutec completed another capacity expansion cycle at the plant in Piracicaba (São Paulo) earlier this year – the gelcoat business is concentrated in Senador Canedo (Goiás). The company now has the potential to produce 1 million liters/month of high performance thinners, diluents and synthetic reducers. “This new capacity will be used for the expansion of our business in the paint and industrial equipment cleaning sectors,” said Sidney Bottene, managing partner of Dilutec.

Besides making gelcoat and thinner, Dilutec is the distributor of BÜFAtec Spain equipment in Latin America, and the official distributor of Ashland resins in the Mid-West region of Brazil.
