1 Party poly over Awlgrip?

My boat''s topsides awlgripped (12 years ago). Needs to be redone. What is the BEST one part polyurethane that will bind appropriately to correctly prepared awlgrip substrate? I plan to roll and tip. How many coats? There''s apparently some new rollers out there somewhere that MAY not require tipping. Designed for this purpose.

1 Party poly over Awlgrip?

There ISNT a one part polyurethane on this planet that will stand up to the rigors of UV and weathering. Why go to all the trouble of fastidious, labor intensive ''prep'' work ... and put on a single part paint only to have it look like crap after only a few years? Consider to apply a 2 part LPU by "roll and tip" or spray application. 2 part LPU''s arent that difficult to spray-on; Interlux offers several systems (other then interthane) that work well.

A couple of years ago, as an experiment, I used my hard dingy as a trial. I put Interlux 2-part roll & tip on most of it, in white. I did a broad stripe with the 1-part, also roll & tip, in a burgundy color. Both looked pretty good at the start--not as good as spraying, but the white in particular was hard to see imperfections. Dark colors show the drips, etc a bit more.
After a couple of years, the 2-part has not degraded at all--still shiny and bright. The 1-part looks dull and faded.
Based on this limited personal trial, I would second the last post and go with the 2-part, especially considering the effort required.

Contact US Paints and ask them. They are the manufacturer and probably your first source of information.
