Catalysrt problems

I love the paint for its durability and strength. However, twice now the catalyst has gone off prior to finishing all the paint. I don't know what sets it off but with lots of paint left I now have to go out and buy more. I am in the tropics and wondering if this is due to high humidity and/or temperatures.

Hello folks, Quite a way down in the list of reviews is a post I made after using perfection to paint a 1970 Cobia. (Joe from Valatie). What I didn't know then was how well perfection weathers. It is now 9 years later and the topside looks exactly like the day I took the picture in 2008. Check out the reflection in the paint. This was brushed. The paint has cleaned easily and still shines the way it has every day throughout it's life. Now, I am spoiled and fully expect to update this page 9 years from now with the same comments. This paint really is quite amazing.

we used this paint on the transom of a dmr head boat....all fiberglass,fairly rough finish. we were not so concerned about a yacht finish as looking nice and clean.we sanded the transom very thoroughly,put 2 coats of epoxy primer,sanded lightly in between.first coat a little thin for a good base,then top coated.,i've used a lot of different paints. so far this paint holds up very well,it is scrubbed almost everyday,between fish guts and detroit diesel exhaust,i am impressed.with a little more care and prep ,this would have had a yacht finish and we did not paint in the best possible weather.next spring we will paint the rest of the hull with this paint.

Excellent spray characteristics.

Follow Interlux directions to the letter. Provide dust-free environment because it doesn't dryreal quick. I used a 1.4 tip HVLP gun with gravity cup at about 45 lbs pressure. It lays downreally nice and flows out beautifully. If you're not real experienced at spray painting, practice first. Excellent end result, but use the the 2316N reducer made especially for spraying anduse as little as possible, if it's too thick to spray you can add a little more. Use protective gear, coveralls, self-contained air and facemask if available. If not, outdoors with good mask.

Great finish if done correctly

You need to sand and sand and sand. If you do it will come out great. If not, the high gloss will show everything

Great protection on a 25 Hunter. Should've done this a few years ago. Very happy with a two part paint. Really need a assistant with the roll and tip method. Better balance of spread and few missed spots.

This product is often useable with one coat application, no primer. Over gel coat, no problem. Occasionally, it might blush, but this occurs when humidity arrives, so plan for six hours of good weather. I have applied it in rainy conditions, in an open garage, without problems. A change in humidity from dry to wet during curing, after application, may cause problems, I generally paint with a Fooler throwaway brush, 2,5 inch width. Work the brush before use, to loose stray bristles, and be prepared to remove a few more. Add 2333 thinner if needed in the middle of a big job. It is possible to do large sections by spotting your paint, then back brushing. Feathering on a 45 degree angle on the finish stroke should do the trick. I have coated a fiberglass catamaran in yellow, with no primer, just 320 sanding, four years ago, one coat. It is still perfect. I have painted a 34 Gulfstream RV with gray, three years ago, under cover, in humid conditions. People do not believe it is brushed. I have coated a 53 Hatteras, in oyster, and numerous towing vessels in red. I experienced some blushing on the Hatteras, in changing humidity. interlude comped paint for this blushing. Don't be afraid to thin this paint to the recommended limit, be careful using a primer, and ride the tip of the brush very lightly on the finish pass. Now, you want to have some fun? Hang your wife's bicycle frame in your open shop on a wet day, grab a 1" Fooler throwaway brush, and lay a beautiful coat of fighting lady yellow on the frame. It'll dry perfect, cause you'll have a lot of brush time in the wet weather, look beautiful, and afterwards you can paint the map of the island of Elbow Cay in the Bahamas, on the frame, with features glued on the frame using sea glass, and paint details. This paint works, and is user friendly. Don't brush it like what you are used to, just pick an object, mix a bit of paint, and get a feel of it. You'll like it. I am 68 years old, and have been brush painting since I started with Chris Craft in Fort Lauderdale in 1969. This is user friendly.

I used this on the smooth deck area as part of a 27' sailboat rebuild. The Interlux rep recommended Interprotect as the primer and that was my first mistake. The primer was still out gassing four days after sanding when I put on the first coat. You could not smell the out gas but the results were poor with loads of out gas bubbles. Second coat was slightly better but still only a seven out of ten.Do NOT use Interprotect under this paint, use the recommended primer.Also induction time of 20 min is too short. I did 30 min then another 10 min for the thinner.

This paint takes longer than 24 hours to cure. Looks good going on, next day is a dull, flat finish that holds moisture and absorbs dirt stains. Never use this product outdoors. Should be sold only as an indoor application. Perfection has 410 product bulletins on the dos and don'ts of application. Not worth the price and the fragile, inconsistent nature of results.

Amazing Finish

I used it to paint the boot stripe on my sailboat. It's a bit overkill for the stripe but I wanted super smooth and "once and done". It took 5 coats to completely cover a the older darker stripe. I sanded with 400 grit between coats and cleaned between coats with with a window cleaner wash-off followed by a quick thinner wipe. I tried rolling and tipping but got best results by simply brushing diagonal strokes followed by a 2-3 stroke tip making sure you keep a wet edge. I used inexpensive Zibra synthetic brushes and I thinned about 12 %. Cooler morning temps and no direct sunlight are critical for a smooth finish. The result is phenomenal, many onlookers thought it was a curiously shiny vinyl stripe..
