Innovation - Quality - Service

AOC is the leading global supplier of resins, gel coats, colorants and additives for the composites industry

Bathware

AOC develops the most technologically advanced resins for manufacturers of thermoplastic-lined spas and bathware. In addition to providing superior adhesion, Altek® bonding resins are designed for improved throughputs and high filler loadings - even in low-styrene formulations. For some manufacturers, exceptional Altek® bonding reduces storage, mixing and processing costs because a single resin is used to back up a variety of surfaces, including gel coat, acrylic and ABS.
