ALUTHANE™

PRODUCT PRO AND CON REVIEW

   
PRO Awesome coating for metal and wood, great protection, looks great. Last of the great 'metallic coatings'. Users become true believers!
CON Open containers don't store well. Hard to remove from your skin if you get it on you. Hard to remove lid from can if you get some in the lid lip.

 


A moisture cured urethane (MCU) , aluminum flake filled,  non-epoxy was specifically formulated as a metallic 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 top coating. 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).


PRODUCT NOTES/COMMENTS:


Note: latex paints don't go over Aluthane nicely (like latex over oil based paints - takes several coats ). Solvent based coatings (urethanes, enamels etc.) do cover Aluthane nicely.

Can also be used as a thin, hard/durable (harder than epoxy) 1 part cement floor coating. See our b_floor.html catalog page.


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.

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™. Great product for use under an enamel or latex topcoat finish.


Common applications: aluminum boats, weathered rusting galvanized surfaces, primer on wood or metal, anti rust coating, heat reflecting coating

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

 2) ACRYLIC POLY UV PLUS

** EMAIL //// ph 603.435.7199 EST ////  BUY ONLINE (two different online stores) /// RETURN TO CATALOG HOMEPAGE **

VOC 249 g/l --- Shipped UPS ground only. Only shipped within the lower 47 states. NOT FOR SALE IN CALIFORNIA


A two part acrylic polyurethane (LPU) clear coat which was especially formulated with max amount of UV blockers and absorbers to keep epoxy floors from UV related yellowing. Available in clear gloss or clear satin. Coverage is about 300 square feet per gallon. Apply in thin coats with plenty of 'dry' time between coats. Handles moisture well.

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.). Always apply in very thin layers/coats.

If applied on a flat surface, in a dusty setting, like many basements, you may see what looks like tiny tiny bubbles forming on the surface 10-60 seconds after application. These specs are from the dust in the air.

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!

Best, Josie (6/2010)

3) INDIA SPAR VARNISH

** EMAIL //// ph 603.435.7199 EST ////  BUY ONLINE (two different online stores) /// RETURN TO CATALOG HOMEPAGE **

VOC 450 g/l --- Shipped UPS ground only. Only shipped within the lower 47 states. NOT FOR SALE IN CALIFORNIA


This is the traditional, amber colored, solvent based varnish most of us grew up with. Due to VOC restrictions it is technically illegal to sell in the USA. That said, all states but California have a 'quart exemption rule' so it can still be sold in one quart units. 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.

 

Stir well. Apply in thin coats. Only apply under "really nice conditions". Coverage is about 75 sq per quart.

4) CAPTAIN TOLLEY'S CREEPING CRACK CURE

** EMAIL //// ph 603.435.7199 EST ////  BUY ONLINE (two different online stores) /// RETURN TO CATALOG HOMEPAGE **


Tiny little hairline cracks in fiberglass boats, fancy woodwork, china cups, in and around bolted down fittings, etc. can be a real problem. These cracks are much too small for fixing with glues or things like silicon sealers. Even things like paint and epoxy paints will just bridge over these hairline cracks. When the trapped air and/or moisture in the cracks expands the crack will migrate up through the paint or epoxy paint - ruining that perfect restoration job.

About 10 years ago I discovered Capt. Tolley's Creeping Crack Cure. I used in on the hairline cracks in the fiberglass deck of my 30 year old sailboat. It was amazing. The product looks like watered-down Elmer's Glue. Put a tiny drop near a hairline crack and capillary action immediately sucks the product into the crack, sealing the crack from the INSIDE, not by simply covering it over. It really works! The cracks don't re-appear through your paint or epoxy topcoat. It is a copolymer that is thinner than water so it fills the cracks via capillary action that even water cannot penetrate.

I also found that a tiny drop of it around a nut/bolt combination locks the nut into place keeping it from vibrating off the my lawn mower, trailer hitch, etc.

I added this product to our catalog because I liked the product personally and thought it would bring a few more folks to our website. Obviously with its low price it's not a big money maker for us, especially since we sell it for a bit less than probably everyone else.

Note: the 2 oz bottle has a better nozzle than the larger 8 oz bottle, so many people use the 8 oz as a refill for the 2 oz bottle
