topeside paint

Have used both Brightsides and Toplac. Toplac goes on much easier with the roll and tip. It is not so susceptible to running, the thinning is not so crucial. If you have to use a one-part then I recommend Toplac. No runs and no brush marks.

With either one be sure to allow lots of setup time. It may appear dry but give it a couple of days before walking on it(my application was on cabin trunk and deck).

I used Interthane PLus on my decks last season. During my investigations I came across a number of people who used Brightsides. All people who used Brightsides were very happy with the outcome.

Thanks, trying to determine if stepping up to the higher price is worth it over brightsides or easypoxy-if it really adds a season or two all other things being equal.

Check the old posts on this site. There was a thread on Toplac.

As I recall a very dissatisfied customer who did a DIY project with Toplac had bad results. Then an Interlux representative responded.

Toplac is reputed to have excellent flow characteristics and gloss and to be easy to apply for the DIY person. It is not as hard as Interthane Plus. Not sure how it compares to Brightsides.

Good Luck!
