Interlux Perfection Paint

Does anyone have experience taking brush strokes off Interlux's Perfection Paint? Wet sanding doesn't seem to help, has anyone tried buffing with a cutting compound?

Any help would be appreciated before I destroy the paint job I recently did.

Check out this PDF:

http://www.yachtpaint.com/Literature...in-usa-eng.pdf

there is a section near the end that outlines the steps to take out imperfections like brush strokes.

Perfection like Awrgrip makes its own Clear protective layer during the drying process and there is nothing that can be done that will not destroy the outer layer and the life of the paints gloss


Even if you want to do a second coat you have to fully wet sand it or the next coat will fisheye because of this

literature

Thanks for the literature, it says to correct runs or sags within 48 hrs of application, I wonder how one would correct problems beyond the 48 hrs!

I refinished my spars a few years ago with Perfection and cannot help you with fixing what you already have but it may help if you need to repaint.

I painted my deck and cabin sides last summer with perfection.

If you have brush strokes in the paint then you really just have 2 choices: you can either live with it (small defects in out-of-the-way places), or sand it smooth and put on another coat (bad enough that it will bother you every time you're on the boat).

I got my best results from just rolling (no tipping) thin layers. It's far from perfect, but from a few feet away it looks very shiny and smooth.

Good luck!

If your going by what the can says about re-coating within 48 hours what can i say but the can is completely wrong

The only re-coating window is if your spraying and even then its a short amount of time < 1 hour depending on temperature


Working with two part paint is a bit more art than science as to the amount of thinning and how you apply the paint
