The paint is functionally the same with both brands being owned by the same parent company and it becomes a Ford VS Chevy debate

In the USA Perfection is marketed to the roll and tip DIY end user and Awlgrip is marketed to the Pro and has a wider range of solvents to accommodate different spraying temperatures

In Europe Perfection is sold with the full range of solvents

The biggest single issue is the paint must be applied in time for the surface to cure before any nighttime cooling causeing condensation on the surface which kills the paints gloss

If a dirty bottom slows you down what do you think it does to your boat
