Gulf Coast Chemical has been named the exclusive distributor of SpectraQuartz® colored quartz aggregate from Mineral Visions to construction, flooring, and pool markets in Florida.
SpectraQuartz is manufactured by Mineral Visions using a unique process in which high-purity quartz is coated with colored pigment dispersions specially developed to permanently bind to the quartz surface. The product is extremely resistant to ultraviolet rays and chemicals, retaining its color and hardness after years of exposure to sunlight and flooring chemicals.
“The SpectraQuartz line of colored quartz will serve as an ideal addition to our line of mineral and performance additive products for the concrete and construction industries”, said Keith Walter, Vice President of Sales. “We are very excited about the outstanding resistance of SpectraQuartz aggregate to UV rays. Maintaining original aggregate color and integrity is especially important to our customers in the pool deck and exterior flooring construction industries. They’re up against a real challenge with the near-constant sun and heat exposure here in the U.S. Southeast.”
Gulf Coast Chemical is a leading supplier of high-performance raw materials and specialty additives for many industries including construction, coatings, adhesives, and composites. Operating from a 35,000 square foot facility located in Tampa, Florida, Gulf Coast Chemical serves customers in the Southeast by supplying products, equipment, and technical assistance.
Said Daryl Allen, President, “Since it is a specialty product that can give our customers a competitive edge, SpectraQuartz aggregate is the right kind of addition to our product line. It’s helping us live the values in our mission statement…’providing the epitome of quality, integrity, and service to all.’”
