ATL Composites has been manufacturing WEST SYSTEM® epoxy products in New Zealand and Australia, under licence to Gougeon Brothers Inc, USA, since 1977.
Initially ATL supplied WEST SYSTEM epoxy into the professional boat building industry in New Zealand for cold-moulded and traditional wooden boat manufacture and that market still remains intact today.
During the 80's, ATL opened an office in Australia, and during that period, were instrumental in the promotion of cedar strip construction (timber composite) for both professional and amateur construction in both countries, with WEST SYSTEM epoxy as an integral part of the construction techniques.
In the late 70's and early 80's, a need was identified, worldwide, for a high quality marine epoxy resin for the repair and maintenance of production fibreglass boats. With superior mechanical properties and moisture resistance, and having the ability to bond to a wide variety of substrates, WEST SYSTEM became the marine epoxy resin of choice for fibreglass boat repair.
Today, WEST SYSTEM epoxy is a marine industry standard used for everything from basic long-lasting repairs to the construction of high-performance composite structures.
To service the Australian market, ATL Composites has established an extensive Distribution / Dealer network to ensure that WEST SYSTEM marine epoxy products, including epoxy resins, fillers, specialty epoxies and additives, are readily available to the market with local support for product supply and technical advice.
ATL Composites is committed to providing quality products
and services to all our current and future customers. Every member
of our business shares the responsibility for quality management and continual
improvement to ensure customer satisfaction.
