"Hi Paul,-- We have been using the Aluthane product for 6 years now and it has been a blessing for our business." (11/14)

Our moisture cured urethane (MCU) aluminum filled paint (ALUTHANE) has lots of applications. These include bridges, tanks, docks, and even wood decking around homes. It is an excellent sealer and an attractive silvery interior and exterior coating. MCU coatings are often used when 'by the book' surface preparation cannot be done.

See our page on aluthane (tm)  - finds links on ordering here too.

The thin Aluthane aluminum paint will often seal leaking rivets (may take several applications) and give the boat a fresh new boat look. See example below.

It the boat needs more than a sealing and priming coat of Aluthane to fix thin spots and leaks, we recommend our CM 15 epoxy paint. CM 15 is a flexible epoxy with excellent bonding. Most aluminum boats flex and most epoxies are hard and brittle. CM 15 was designed for flexing metal. Use it with fiberglass cloth and then topcoat with Aluthane.

 

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.

Hi, The Aluthane is incredible, I used it on an old aluminum canoe and it is the best coating I have ever used. I will be using it on a very beat up aluminum boat I just bought.
Thanks Vinny

"Hello, I have used Aluthane to coat machinery and think it’s a marvelous product."


 

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.

Hello Paul; Thank you for the prompt response!

This aluminum boat was given to me several years ago and originally used in saltwater for many years. It did have very worn paint on the outside of the boat. It looked pretty bad, and so it sat in my yard until last year when I sent an email to ask your co. what you might recommend that would be a 'quick fix' that might help plug some of the minor leaks. I also mentioned that I would only be using the boat in 'fresh' water.

All I did was to power wash it and use several sticks of 'Bondo' marine epoxy sticks to repair some of the rivets that had eroded from the salt water use and had major leaks. I had only put one coat of Aluthane on last year, with the intention of putting on another one this year. I was amazed at how nice it looked after putting on the Aluthane with a small roller and brush. Also, was impressed with how well it sealed the small pinhole leaks that were evident all over the bottom. Several neighbors thought that I had bought a new boat when they saw me on the lake last summer.....


 

 

Commercial vs. DIY MCU Coating Products

Given the outstanding and time tested  performance and properties of MCU coatings in serious commercial setting it is not surprising that companies have attempted to move this product into the DIY/Home-Boat Owner market.  This market is less knowledgeable and will accept lesser quality and overpriced MCU coatings compared to the commercial/industrial marketplace.

Warning Flags:

* Very slick web sites that suggest their product is unique and one-of-kind and that you cannot find anything even remotely similar. Some sites really play up MCU chemistry, others hide it, thus implying how 'magical' and special their standard MCU coating is.

*  Fancy product names and colorful labels that suggest a Madison Ave focus rather than no-frills commercial roots.

* Prices in the $150-$200 a gallon range. No MCU coating  is that expensive to manufacture, especially for large companies. These folks are making $100 plus profit per gallon from you (with 'discounts' and 'free shipping' making hardly a dent in their profits). No commercial user would pay these outrageous prices for a gallon of an industrial coating.

* Check product coverage. These are thin products, due to their chemistry they don't need to be thick. But the general public usually thinks thicker is better. The thicker the product the more you use and the more you will have to purchase (at those extremely high prices). If coverage numbers are given make certain they are real life numbers and not "theoretical coverage" numbers. The theoretical coverage for 1 gallon of water at 1 mil thick is over 1600 square feet.

* One thing that cannot be easily established, but should be lurking in the back of your mind is the polyurethane resin used in the manufacture of the coating. Top-of-the-line, commercial/industrial MCU coatings, like our Aluthane product, use 100%  polyurethane resin. MCU coatings can be manufactured with diluents and other low cost additives to reduce the amount of polyurethane resin in the manufacturing process (like adding water to the whiskey!). The result is still a good MCU, but not a great one and not one formulated for maximum performance, but rather for better profits. One of our 'regular'  30 gallon a month Aluthane MCU customers stopped purchasing for about 5 months, presumably testing alternative products. They returned to us most likely because of the higher purity/quality and reasonable price of our Aluthane (tm) MCU.

Aluthane as a primer under a VERY HIGH END FINISH - (user notes)

Mon, 24 Nov 2003 18:42:56 -0800
From: Cal <>

"The brush marks from the brush application of the Aluthane put me off and I had to cover them before the Aluthane got to maximum hardness. The job is done now, and a nice finish, but I have a few observations for top coating to a glossy finish that I would like to share. I did my bench top a month ago, and it is different by a LOT from the boat coating I saw happening.

The Aluthane needs to be rolled on, and not brushed to flatten out well. I used a phenolic core 9 " by 1/4 " nap foam roller, 3/16" would be even better for a lot less texture than the brush streaks that were left. A good smooth roll down my bench top (or hull) faired everything in well.
