NOTE: 2 part poly paints are really sensitive to surface contamination problems etc. Guys that paint cars use 2 part poly paints. They use a product made by Du Pont and sold at auto part stores called 259S Paint Additive (quote: an additive for topcoats and clears to eliminate fisheyes, craters and other surface defects). I paid $22 for a pint of it in 2003.

A moisture cured urethane (MCU) , aluminum flake filled,  non-epoxy was specifically formulated as a metalic coating over less-than perfectly prepared surfaces. Dries in temperatures down to 40 F. However, this coating often ends up as an aluminum colored topcoat. We're impressed with the ‘fresh galvanized' look it gives back to boat trailers. Also makes aluminum masts and booms look new. Gives engines and other mechanical equipment that dealer fresh look (or primed and ready to repaint status). On smooth surfaces it has a 'flat' galvanized look. On rough surfaces it has a shiny silvery look. Unique penetrating urethane chemistry seals and covers rust, keeps it from ‘rusting back through.' We know this is a great product - we can't get it off your hands even after days of normal washing and wear. The real aluminum flakes can handle temperatures of several hundred degrees (and resists burning better than regular paint). Used industrially on large metal tanks, bridges, and piping with or without topcoating. A truly unique primer AND/OR attractive metallic topcoat.
Because of their amazing bonding, commercial painting contractors use moisture cured urethanes on surfaces that they cannot prep as well as they would like to. You should too! One quart units cover up to 100 square feet (about 75 square feet on rough surfaces and 100 square feet on smooth surfaces).

What is an MCU Coating? 

 

MCU stands for Moisture Cured Urethane and makes a very superior high performance  coating. These are a unique type of coating much better known in commercial industrial painting circles than within the general public market.  Most MCU coatings use tiny aluminum flake as pigment which gives them their classic silvery/gray color and enhances their remarkable properties.

MCU contain lots of solvents which aids in penetrating tiny cracks and crevices. The coating scavenges moisture from its contact surfaces and the air and undergoes an cross-linking molecular process which 'grips' or grabs onto surfaces for outstanding adhesion, even with poorly prepared surfaces. Removing internal surface moisture removes one of the key components necessary for rust development.

The resulting dry surface (aided by the stacking aluminum pigment platelets) provides a physical barrier to air and oxygen, another necessary component for rust to form.  The result is a thin, hard coating that seals our air, water, salts, minerals etc.  essentially encapsulating the surface  It therefore is one of the best, easy to apply, rust and corrosion control coatings.

Its amazing adhesion results in a versatile coating well suited for use on steel, aluminum, concrete, fiberglass, wood etc. It can be used as a primer/sealer, a middle coat or a exposed as a topcoat. The aluminum pigmented versions have no UV issues, can be applied at low temperatures and operate at temperatures of up to about 400 degrees F. Besides being used as a rust stopper is also has applications on  boats, roofing and flooring applications. In is used a lot in the industrial, automotive, marine and farm marketplaces. The AUTO RESTORATION market is one place these coatings are widely promoted within the 'DIY home' marketplace.

 

One of the major differences with our Aluthane MCU and other aluminum MCU coatings is that we use 100% urethane resin and all (or just about everyone else) thins or dilutes their urethane resin so that the end product is less than 100% urethane resin and aluminum. The difference with these cost cutting/profit enhancing measures is a product that just doesn't perform or last as long as our pure resin system. Over time the differences are easy to observe and I have actual customers that have tried the competition, but then come back to our Aluthane MCU.

"A very pleased user of Aluthane and your epoxies" (primer on old cars)

 Craig - Houston, TX - Oct. 2016

"Paul, just thought Id let you know, used Aluthane on bottom of a  fiberglass/ epoxy hull repair, on my high speed powerboat tunnel cat. Left it on a mooring in Maine  for about a total of 3 months (8 times for  3 week stretches) since last May. Paint is still perfect - submerged 3 weeks at a time." - Dave 10/16

(customer review) "Many aircraft paint systems use finely powdered aluminum as a blocker, and this is a proven technology. The paint must stick well to dacron, retain good flexibility for many years, and generally be a tough coating. It should seal the fabric, reducing any airflow (air leakage) to a minimum.  In my experience Aluthane meets these requirements.

Aluthane wets out on dacron beautifully. It penetrates and seals, too. I made up a 18" x 20" test panel and stretched 2.7 oz aviation fabric at 300F.

I had Aluthane on a dacron outdoor test panel for five years. It was still in good condition after five years, and continued to adhere well. I flew an airplane for four years with the Aluthane topcoated with Polyfiber Bahama Blue. Both the Aluthane and the topcoat remained flexible.


Aluthane also appears to stick like crazy to both aluminum and fiberglass!" email - 10/14

Tom wrote (10/2008):

Thanks Paul; here are a few comments on the Aluthane.

I was looking for a product to use on the 4" steel pilings on a newly constructed boat house. I wanted to extend the life of the piles and the overall structure since the boathouse cost roughly $50K to build. Aluthane was recommended. At the time, the water was down around three feet from normal pool so I was able to paint roughly 4 feet of the piling that was exposed. For prep, I used a simple paint scraper to smooth off the rough, loose rust and then a wire brush. I did not put a lot of effort into preparation. Total prep time per piling was no more than 3-5 minutes. I used a 3" roller and rolled the Aluthane on. Again, very simple and quick.


Hi Paul,

I was working on the boat today and couldn't help but notice how sharp my aluminum hardtop (still) looks after a very harsh summer of hard work on the salty ocean and a long New England winter exposed to the elements.

I remember the day I finished welding my hardtop and sat baffled as to how to finish it. You see, the hardtop frame was comprised of a half cut-up Mako tower (anodized aluminum) and scrap 6061 aluminum, all TIG welded together. With little to no prep, aside from a light sanding and a wash with alcohol, I was able to brush on (stippling) two coats of Aluthane in a day and have the boat launched a week later. Since then, the frame has seen rope chaffing, scrapes, climbing crew with abrasive sandy shoes, and harsh sun and seawater. The finish has never worn through and shows no signs of damage.

It has held up marvelously. So well in fact, I go out of my way to find things to paint with Aluthane. So far, I've painted my engines heat exchanger, primer my manifolds and risers, painted parts of my galvanized trailer including the wheels, and various mixed metal hardware on my boat.

I've recommended this product to others looking for a tough coating that can take a beating. A little goes a long way with Aluthane and it is almost funny how easily it goes on, rolled or brushed. One caveat, brushing will show brush marks so I usually stipple the surface with a brush with its bristles cut way back (or roll it on). Continuous mixing is key, too. It isn't glossy which is nice in some cases.

Paul 4/09


From comment section of 6/2010 online order for 1 gallon of Aluthane: "Returning (vendor note - a past customer). Spiral stairs near ocean. Wonderful coating that resists corrosion."


John (2/16/2012 email): A Wonderful Product!! Love Using It For A Little Of Everything!!! Proud To Buy American Products!!

My first experience w/ Aluthane was on my 1966 Starcraft boat....then with the left over quart I did the main door on my garage.....after that....I still had enough to apply a coat onto my rear bumper of my F250. This time around.... I used 1 quart again on: The in and outside panel of a retired U-Haul Truck (33 5/8 in. x 6 1/2 ft).....all the interior wall panels of the box truck (it's a 14 ft. box with grandmas attic)....and a 80# saddle propane tank. It's been an average of 28* up here for a high and it applied beautifully.....drying time is slower (I expected this)....but it coated just as smoothly as if it was 75* and sunny.

I totally agree.....b4 I crack a 1 quart container....I make sure I have enough things to coat so I don't hafta waste it in the garbage. I've been telling as many people as I can about Aluthane (and about you guys and galls).....telling them what I've been using it on and how nice it looks...and how smoothly it helped water proof my 46 year old boat and with a teeny bit of help from Marine Goop. My boat flows so smoothly through the water.....you would have never guessed that it leaked pretty good b4 the Aluthane and Goop.

I just hope and pray that this Economy and World Govt. doesn't shut you guys and gals down. That will be a VERY VERY SAD DAY for all the DIY's and commercial and industrial accounts you deal with on a regular basis.

Keep up the WONDERFUL WORK!!! Love the product so much!!! OMG.....I wanna coat everything exterior with it.... LOL. But seriously... when I get a chance.... I will be using the 1 Gallon Aluthane to do both of my porches. Have a great day and year. And blessed be us all.

John

ALUTHANE  -  aluminum MCU (moisture cured urethane) super coating

Paul, (11/15),

Just wanted to let you know how well Aluthane works as a coating for a boat anchor. We have a 41 foot DeFever trawler with a 55# SuperMax anchor that dates to the late 1990s when they were first produced. Over the years and a lot of anchoring in various types of bottoms, the galvanized coating on the anchor had deteriorated to being almost non-existent and the underlying steel was starting to rust lightly. It's almost impossible around here (east coast of Florida) to get anything regalvanized, so looked for alternatives.

Aluthane jumped out at me as a good choice for a test. Before we

departed on our latest 4500 mile cruise from Florida to Maine and return, I "painted" the SuperMax with two coats of Aluthane after brushing off all the rust I could and coating it with Ospho prior to the application of Aluthane.

Five months, lots of rain and ocean spray, and 51 nights at anchor in various types of bottoms from sand and gravel and rock to mud, the Aluthane had worn off at only the very tips of the anchor (the area that digs into the bottom) and exposed the underlying steel. The vast majority of the surface area of the anchor was still being protected by the Aluthane.

I just finished adding two more coats and it looks great!

read about the 2007 Aluthane™ coating of Thunder Bridge

- About 5500 sf and 18 gallons of Aluthane™ -

http://www.chichesternh.org/Public_Documents/ChichesterNH_Historical/HistSoc/ThunderBridge


TESTING RESULTS: I coated an Armstrong brand commercial floor tile (12 inch by 12 inch), as well as a piece of plywood, with one coat of Aluthane and submerged it in a freshwater pond for 5 months. Both samples were perfectly intact (no peeling, blistering, softening, etc. at the end on the test. While urethanes are generally not considered suitable for immersion applications, this product appears to work fine underwater We cannot officially warranty it for immersion, but I personally now feel comfortable enough that I would use it on a dinghy boat bottom, boat mooring, submerged pump, etc.


More about our Aluthane product (5/05): from personal experience I can say that it makes a great primer (primer page), bonding solidly to surfaces that other coatings will not. I personally like it on wood (really soaks in!) such as porches etc. It can be painted over with latex or enamel without problem (or left alone). What's really nice is that when sanded lightly it gets darker in color, so when used as a primer/sealer, a bit of sanding will show high (dark) spots and low (lighter) spots as you sand smooth the surface.

I like using Aluthane under enamel or latex topcoats. It works better than a solvent thinned epoxy undercoat.



If you're looking for a coating you can just sort of slap on without a lot of surface prep and have it last a long time (even underwater) - use our Aluthane™.

PRODUCT NOTES/COMMENTS:

Companies and products like Awlgrip™ have established polyester polyurethanes as the premium grade yacht finish in the marine world. This product compares directly to Awlgrip two part urethanes but is sells for 40% of the Awgrip price. .

The 2009 West Marine Catalog lists 1 quart units of Perfection™ two part LPU (page 200) at $77.99 a quart!!!! They don't say if it is an acrylic poly or the better polyester poly, which usually means it is an acrylic poly... They also sell an LPU 'varnish' (page 203 - $77.99 per quart) which I assume is akin to our Acrylic Poly UV plus clear coat. Our products are about 66% less in price.


Two part polys really like/need a fresh (i.e. primed) surface to bond to. Epoxy primers (solvent thinned epoxies) are very common but 1 part solvent based primers are also used. There is no 'exclusive' primer, pretty much any epoxy, for example, will work.


Packaging is 1.5 gal units (1 gallon of the Part A and half gallon of the Part B). The product is approximately 60% solids (60% VOC).


Two part poly paints are not like 'regular' paints to apply. Even with added solvents (called reducers) they get 'tacky' immediately upon application to the surface. Search the net for 'Roll and Tip' as a method often used for better application. Best method is by spray.


NOTE: WE'RE MOSTLY AN EPOXY COMPANY, SO OUR SKILL LEVEL, SUPPORT AND RELATED PRODUCTS FOR THESE 2 PART POLYS IS 'WEAK' - OUR INCENTIVE IS THE LOW PRICE WE HAVE FOR THESE PRODUCTS (NOT REALLY LOWER THAN OUR OTHER PRODUCTS - JUST NOT THE SHOCKING HIGH PRICE EVERYONE ELSE CHARGES FOR THESE POLYS). WE HAVE BEEN SUGGESTING YOU FOLLOW THE ADVISE/RECOMMENDATIONS OF THE BIG POLY COMPANIES LIKE AWLGRIP BUT THEN SUBSTITUTE THEIR POLY WITH OURS.


Note that 2 part urethanes can be tricky/difficult to brush apply. They set up quickly on applied surfaces and can leave brush marks, even when special 'reducers' are used. If using a brush, have our 'slow' SU 93 reducer (see below) on hand, use a quality brush, and test your application first, in case you're not happy with the brushed on result (such as on boat hulls, poured on epoxy table tops, etc.).

LPU coatings REALLY NEED to go on thin (multi thin coats!) - many folks sand between all or some of the coats. The coats are very thin so here is a link to a site that sells 'sandpaper' in the 400 - 12,000 super/super fine range (thanks for this info from one of our customers!) https://www.micro-surface.com/

Stopping UV damage and UV yellowing  ----------------    Josie Lewis (6/2010) wrote:

Hi Paul: I recently purchased some clear epoxy  and Acrylic Poly UV Plus from your company. I have access to a UV chamber which simulates high altitude direct UV exposure. I thought you might be interested in my findings. I used a Masonite panel painted white and then coated with the epoxy. On half of the epoxy coated panel, I brushed on one coat of UV Poly and put it in the chamber for 644 hours at 50 C (the heat accelerates the exposure). Attached is a picture of the results. The masonite cracked a bit and separated due to a bit of wetness in the wood (unrelated to the resin). The epoxy  ambered dramatically within about 50 hours. After 644 hours, the UV Poly showed a slight bit of ambering from the original control but it is marginal at worst. The technician who ran the test said if it isn't yellow at 644 hours it is basically indestructible. I also tested several other 2-part resin products with the UV Poly and had the same result. You have a great product. I now feel secure knowing that my resin art, protected with the Poly UV Plus, will be archival and protected for long years. I will be ordering more soon!

PRODUCT NOTES/COMMENTS:

(More on UV blockers)

This product compares directly to Awlcraft 2000™ clear coat but is sells for 30% of the Awlcraft price (70% discount!). We are fairly certain our product has much more UV protection (UV blockers and UV absorbers) than Awlcraft 2000 clear..

Used on wood floors (over an epoxy sealing coat!)!


A little bit of our brown and/or red pigment (
marine link / res. link) added to our clear epoxy sealer - ESP 155™ (marine link / res. link), traditional India Spar Varnish™ (marine link / res. link), or our 2 part LPU clear polyurethane - Acrylic Poly UV Plus™ (marine link / res. link), works like a high end stain on wood surfaces without the issues of compatibility. Tinting a first coat of a clear product (with white pigment for example) can mean fewer fewer topcoats of white paint. Also it is much easier to brush or roll on an even, uniform layer of coating when that coating is slightly pigmented instead of clear. It is very hard to see what you are doing when applying a clear coating.

India Spar Varnish™:

INDIA SPAR VARNISH™

PRODUCT PRO AND CON REVIEW

   
PRO The hard to find traditional 'oil based' vanish - a nice amber "warm" coating that is easy to apply
CON Due to VOC laws, only sold in quarts and not available at all in California

CANNOT BE SOLD IN ANY PART OF CALIFORNIA

This Product has its own web page - CLICK HERE (india spar varnish - marine varnish)

This is the traditional, amber colored, solvent based varnish most of us grew up with. Due to VOC restrictions it is getting harder and harder to find. I, and many others, find the modern replacements less than satisfactory in turns of look, feel and performance. Varnish is often applied over epoxy built kayaks to protect the epoxy from UV damage while still showing the natural wood finish. We can offer this product only because of the quart unit exemption to the VOC regulations. This exemption is no longer in place in California.


Copper powder can be added to epoxies (including our ESP 155™ epoxy sealer), our traditional India Spar Varnish™, our clear water-based Water Prime™ epoxy, and our water-based acrylic sealer Bio Vee Gloss™ as a decorative pigment. Copper powder can be found in our
Marine Catalog as well as in our Industrial/home Catalog.

The 2009 West Marine Catalog (page 203) lists several varnish products for $28.99 - $44.99 per quart.


A little bit of our brown and/or red pigment (
marine link / res. link) added to our clear epoxy sealer - ESP 155™ (marine link / res. link), traditional India Spar Varnish™ (marine link / res. link), or our 2 part LPU clear polyurethane - Acrylic Poly UV Plus™ (marine link / res. link), works like a high end stain on wood surfaces without the issues of compatibility. Tinting a first coat of a clear product (with white pigment for example) can mean fewer fewer topcoats of white paint. Also it is much easier to brush or roll on an even, uniform layer of coating when that coating is slightly pigmented instead of clear. It is very hard to see what you are doing when applying a clear coating.
