I wouldn't buy this paint again.


I rolled on the paint and the next day started to sand it, but the dust from sanding glued itself to the paper and then back on to the hull. Which I then had to pull off. It never really seemed to properly set up. And so I painted it again without sanding. Then a week later when we launched her, the slings adhered to the paint and the paint was damaged. It just never set up right. Which was a bummer. And expensive.

Good stuff!

Great application and Quality


By no means do I know how to spray paint. I got a free sprayer with by compressor and had never used it. Mix this product exactly as the can indicates, practice on a flat board, dial-in your spray gun to "your" pace and you will really enjoy the process and finish.

The best in durability


Last time I repainted topsides was in 1991 and they still were decent.

Awlgrip Clear over Awlbrite.


We have found that using a last coat or two of clear Awldrip over Awlbrite provides better abraision resistance to the finish. We typically use 2 coats pentrating epoxy CPES on bare wood until setup and solvents have evaporated but still green then 5050 with west 105/207 then one coat 105/207 or system 3 ,sand smooth, 3 coats Awlbrite 24 hoursor less apart, sand smooth, 3 more coats Awlbrite 24 hours or less apart, sand smooth , then 2 coats Awlgrip clear that now has stood up to 3 years of use on a boat we see regularly and 5 according to the owner of a boat we did in 2007. This system requires that NO moisture get in behind your coatings. We have used it on Mahogany and properly deoiled Teak . I believe that the epoxies expand and contract with the wood somewhat sparing the harder suface coats from failure due to expansion and contraction. UV will get at this stuff and this year another coat of Awlbrite then one of Awgrip will go on the job from 2007 assuming that the substrate is stable. Ill keep readers posted when we order again

Do not use Awlgrip Air Ag Yellow


Regarding your ad for AwlGrip paint, which says "Awlgrip finishes are renowned for their superior resistance to sun, saltwater, chemicals," I can tell you that one color of AwlGrip, at least is the absolute worst paint for chemical resistance. A paint shop used AwlGrip Air Ag Yellow on my airplane, and I have used it also, in touch up work. That particular color is EXTREMELY sensitive to the acid wash used to clean corrosion from aluminum; a necessary preparatory step. The slightest spill or drip of the phosphoric acid cleaner will eventually show up as a dark stain on the Air Ag Yellow, and cannot be removed except by rubbing through the layer of stain with rubbing compound. NO OTHER paint of any color that I have used has had this problem. Parts of the airplane are painted in Matterhorn White Alumigrip, and it does not stain, nor does yellow, white, or black Imron. Worse yet, Akzo Nobel is extremely unresponsive and very defensive about complaints, and not at all helpful. They just blew me off when I asked them about the issue.

There is no better paint


I used the brushing reducer with great results. Should have used primer because gelcoat was so oxidized it took many coats to get deep color (red)
