Petite Top Side Paint

Planning on painting the topside this spring. I was going to roll & tip Interlux perfection but was looking at the Petite web site this afternoon.

Anyone have any experience with EZ-Poxy 2? For a 2 part paint, the propoganda makes it seem pretty easy/foolproof when compared Interlux.

I think it's a fairly new product so I'm not sure how it holds up.

Any comments?

Don't know about the ez poxy 2. For what it's worth, I just painted my topsides with the one part ez poxy and got very good results.

Re: Petite Top Side Paint

I have never use it BUT

1. Its the same cost as perfection give or take a buck ?

2. I have used a good bit of Awlgrip and Perfection and they apply exactly the same

You mix A AND B and then start the part science part Voodoo of how much of what thinner is going to work right when its 71.3 degrees with 47 % RH

If you get it right it they work perfect if do exactly the same thing 24 hours later and its 4 degrees cooler its going to take more of something to get the result you had 24 hours earlier

I"ve seen pictures of your boat & you are the paint expert IMHO.
The stuff below is copied & pasted from the Petite web site.
For someone like myself, I like the more forgiving than the competition part.

•Exceptionally easy two-part polyurethane application
•Long lasting, extremely durable, high-gloss finish
•Innovative formula is practically fool-proof
•More economical and forgiving than the competition

EZ Poxy2 is a high-performance, two-part polyurethane marine paint without all of the costs and hassles associated with two-part enamels. EZ Poxy2 combines the added gloss, wear resistance, and durability boaters are looking for in a two-part polyurethane enamel with the ease of application of a single part product. This revolutionary formula reduces the effects of brush strokes and is so forgiving; it’s practically fool-proof. In fact, EZ Poxy2 is so innovative that it makes exact mixing ratios a thing of the past. Its added UV protection and gloss retention will keep your boat looking shiny and new for years to come. It is more economical, requires less effort, and is more forgiving than the competition.

Thanks,
Bob

Re: Petite Top Side Paint

They were not likely to say it was harder to use

I work with many types of paint and the good two part marine paints are fussy because of they way they form the thin clear layer during drying

NONE of the automotive paints I use work this way and require the added step of a clear coat

I hear ya on that.

Just the fact they claim it's more forgiving works for me, I like forgiving..

I'll try it if I warm up to one of their colors. I really like the Interlux color Artic White & Petites paint card isn't very clear.

Closecall, thanks for the input.

Heh Misfits! After messing about with my Seaward 22 for months addressing details, I'm now perilously close to repainting the deck. I,too,have been looking at the EZ poxy 2. What did you wind up using, assuming you've got to the job? How did it go? I'm painting over 1987 gelcoat, in fair to poor condition, no cracks.

Re: Petite Top Side Paint

You might also check out Signature Finish. It is made by the same guy in Florida (Tom who answers his own phone except when he is taking stuff to the post office) that makes Honey Teak. I have used both products and quite like them. These products are specifically aimed at DIY folks.

Re: Petite Top Side Paint

Thanks, FSMike. This is all greek to me. I'm pretty competent, used to run a shop building high end stuff for Disney, etc, but deck paint is spooky from everything I've read. My boat is small but can you expand your post a bit? do you have anything else to recommend? Thanks.
