Epifanes Monourethane One-Component Paint

Epifanes Monourethane is a one component (part) paint system. Years of testing and on-vessel experience have proven this unique topside finish to be the most advanced, highly engineered single-part urethane-alkyd resin paint available.

Monourethane provides incredibly hard urethane abrasion and chemical resistance with outstanding gloss, durability, color retention and U.V. protection. It can be brushed or rolled with the application ease of an enamel.

This is by far the most difficult paint I have ever used on a boat (this is my fourth full-boat paint job). It is remarkably finicky to the environment - use only out of the sun (cloudy days?), but not in the rain (sunny days?), not too humid, but not so dry or windy that it skins too quickly. OK, use ONLY in a shop, barn, warehouse, etc?!?!? The instructions say that it dries in a day, but that's a fantasy - a week to a month before it stops being too delicate to touch for any purpose, because it scratches and peels easily before it is fully "cured", which I see as 1 - 2 months. I have had it bubble up weeks after application (yes, under a tarp, but c'mon), peel off with blue painters tape, wrinkle when I didn't get the thickness "just right", and just about every other imaginable painting nightmare. Plus, it's very, very expensive! I bought it for scratch resistance (top rated by Jamestown and others) but if it comes off in chunks at the slightest provocation, I'll be painting this boat in a couple of years. � Yes, I used their very, very expensive primer to avoid any compatibility issues. Their paint peels off of their primer - at least one is failing to do its job.

Tough and Beautiful

In my 50+ years of painting boats I've used almost every brand out there. The Epifanes Monourethane is a superb, tough coating, among the very, very best. It is also tough to apply and requires the right weather conditions if used outdoors, the right amount of thinner, AND the right touch on the roller at all times. When all goes well, the finish rivals the best spray job even when rolled and tipped. In fact, forget tipping with a brush... use the very fine foam Epifanes roller to tip itself. You'll be amazed at the results . Order the thinner, foam rollers, graduated measuring cups, and lots of wet/ dry sandpaper and prepare yourself to go light, slow, and methodical. Practice on a panel first (5-6% thinner). You'll get a killer finish. I used it on my motorhome and saved a ton of money over a commercial spray job.

Product seemed old.

Product was used on boat. Product appeared months old. Dust on cap indicated extended time on shelf. Was thick and difficult to spread. Wound up using it as a base coat which worked well. Extended time required to dry (96 hours).

Epiphanes Monourethane

I watched the comparison video that Jamestown did on the three popular paints for my job and decided on the Epiphanes mono and it turned better than i expected. I had picked up an old canoe (fiberglass) and it need a lot of TLC. I sanded it and fiberglassed the cracks, primed it and used two coats of the Mono, sanding with #400 between coats and couldn't believe the finish it was great! My only complaint is the drying time (im impatient) and want to get things done, but its worth the time invested.

I used this paint on a older lund fishing boat from the 80's. It was the best paint I've ever used. The paint went on great and the gloss is excellent. My boat looks like its new.

Epiphanes Mono

I bought an old canoe to fish the creeks here that i don't want to put my skiff in, so I found this and it needed quit a bit of attention. This is still a work in progress however you can see a difference with a little elbow grease and time. I sanded and cleaned the old finish, primed it,used two coats of Epiphanes Mono on it, wet sanded the first coat and finished off. Still need some interior non skid, and anti fouling on the bottom and i'll be hitting creeks. This is a great product that I will be buying again.

I bought an old fiberglass canoe just for fishing the creeks. It was in grave disrepair, being raised in a body shop I thought I can tackle this and bring some life back into this old canoe. I sanded, prepped and finished it off with the two coats of the Epiphanes monourethane and WOW. I been spraying cars all my life and never thought for a minute you could achieve that type of finish with a roller, you'd think it was spray job/ Great flow out and great gloss retention.I'll be buying more of this in the future!
