    roll on 2 part epoxy paint

    i was wondering if anyone here has delt with some of the newer 2 part paints. i saw a part on "ship shape" where they rolled this stuff on. it looked good on tv. it cured very smooth. they said it had a 10 year life. any help would be great.
    Boatless at the moment. Looking for a 24-25' V

    Two part epoxy paints

    I tried using some 2 part paint last summer on a small sailboat I was restoring.
    It worked very well, but...
    Make sure it's not too hot/humid when you're going to try it out.
    I painted my hull last July (not really the best weather conditions for it at the time)
    The results were very good, but I did end up with a few tiny bubbles that I wasn't able to smooth before the paint became tacky to the touch. (fortunately they are not that visible) This paint had a short hardening time.
    I don't know how it would hold up on a hull that planes, or flies??? I think a traditional spray booth method is still far better, both for finish & durability too.
    It depends on what you want the finished product to look like I suppose.
    Good luck with your project.

    I just had a look for you, but I've tossed the old containers away.
    I bought it from Noah's Boat building supplies, in Toronto.
    They are located just a block from my office. If I have a chance tommrow, I'll walk down there at lunch, and check the brand name for you. I know it was not Sikkens, maybe Epoxy Tech? I'll let you know for sure tommrow.

    It comes in two containers that mix about 5:1, or just mix the whole batch as is (depending on the size of your project & the temperature/humidity too).
    You just prep the surface, paint it on carefully with a brush, and then smooth out your brush lines with a good quality foam roller. Then wait...

    *a very small amount of thinner mixed with the paint will extend the working
    time of the paint*

    I'll try to get back to you tommrow on this.

    vwfreak,

    Epifanes Yacht Coatings

    It's called Epifanes Yacht Enamel.
    It costs a bit more than Sikkens, but I think it's worth it.
    Assorted sizes of containers available, and 42 different colors.
    I even took a picture of the container for you. (had the camera with me anyways) *I'll post it later when i have a few mins to resize it*

    Good for wood/plywood, fiberglass, steel, and aluminum.
    Drying time is approx 24hrs at 65F.
    Noah's sells it for $58.30 CDN for 750ml.
    Good luck with the painting.

    Most people's first post are about boats, not bathtubs

    Urethanes are not the best choice, most are for above the waterline. They're not ideal for constant immersion. A number of manufacturers make bathtub kits now, and work pretty well. They are epoxy systems.

    Epoxies are not good for applications that get a lot of sunlight, the UV rays will degrade the finish, urethanes are better for that.

    When I worked for west marine I sold alot of interlux two part polyurethane. Mostly to blow boater that hand painted. I think they liked the fumes. I know they said they had good results. I would question if it would hold up at speed. Onebadaction on the board seems to really know paint I would ask him or wildman. Rick
