For all of us fans of Valspar Gelcoats, I learned something intresting today. While I was on the phone with Sher-fab today, ordering some prestec clear add and primer, I noticed that on their website, they still offer Valspar gel. Being that I know Valspar is no longer offering gelcoat, i ask the guy is they still have Valspar left in stock.
He told me that the valspar line is still available, that it is carried under Lilly-Ram chemical company, under ram Gelcoats, he said that Ram was making the formulas for Valspar for a while, and that all the colors, names of the colors, and part numbers for Ram gelcoats are still the same as the valspar.
I have a Valspar color chart and I just compared it to the Ram gel color chart and ill be damed if they are all the same.
This is intresting to me because for a while now every one i have talked to about valspar has said that they went off the gel market and did not offer up there formulas for reproduction.
i have a particular intrest in this because i have a spot on my Advantage, in the fade, that needs repair, and the boat was geled with valspar gel and the colors they offerd took the guessing and matching ,out of the equation.
I just thought I would share that info, for those that were'nt in the Know.....Hal
