Ashland Performance Materials, a business unit of Ashland Inc. (NYSE: ASH), introduces Maxguard™ MRR Ultra Jet Black gelcoat which allows boat manufacturers to produce vessels with the deep black color and crisp, mirror-like finish that today’s boat buyer wants.

Maxguard MRR Ultra Jet Black gelcoat enables marine manufacturers to meet that demand so they can remain competitive in the market.”
