Default Devoe Paints?

I ask this question on an existing thread and did'nt get any response, so I'll start a fresh one. I'm condidering using Devoe 2 part acrylic urethane for painting my cockpit and maybe my hull. Does anyone have any experience on this subject?

Default RE: Devoe Paints?

I have used Devoe paints on the last couple boats I've either built or re-built. The last one was a 20' wooden tolman skiff. http://groups.msn.com/bricog/tolmanskiff.msnw?Page=1
This is a marine plywood/epoxy resin/fiberglas cloth layup, so for a primer I used Devoe Bar Rust 235, an all-purpose primer. For the topcoat I used Devran 229H acrylic epoxy gloss. Here's a link to a pdf of the product description: http://f5.grp.yahoofs.com/v1/cLkbQt5...evran20229.PDF That's quite a link, so I doubt it will work. Anyways, 229H is an industrial paint used in tank farms etc. It goes on pretty thick, and I had a hard time trying to spray it with an hvlp sprayer without getting an orange-peel finish. I ended up rolling and tipping. It's a 9:1 ratio of paint to hardener, and unless you really thin it all down, it's very hard to do fine brushwork on accent lines, etc. The procedure is to apply paint, wait 5-7 hours for some drying, then apply the next coat. Unlike many other paints, there is no sanding between coats. Therefore, you get a decent workboat finish, but nothing like the mirror finish you can get with Interlux Interthane, for example. However, I'd rate it tougher to scratch than Interlux Brightsides which goes on very thin and scratches easily compared to 229H.

Several years ago, I used Devthane aliphatic urethane gloss on a boat, and I didn't think it was as tough as the 229H. It is also deadly to spray without the right breathing equipment.

Shoes,

Thanks for the reply and the pics, the boat looks great. I am familiar with the 229 epoxy. We use it at work. Your right, it isn't the best spraying stuff in the world. The Devthane aliphatic urethane gloss is what I was considering painting my boat with. You say you think it would scratch easy? We use this at work also, it sprays pretty nice and has a slick finish. I just wasn't sure how it would hold up on a fiberglass trailer boat. Thanks

My scratch comment was directed towards the Interlux Brightsides. It scratched a lot easier than either of the Devoe paints. The boat I painted with the Devthane aliphatic urethane was sold a long time ago. I never got to see how that paint held up over time. If you spray this paint at work, you're way ahead of the game already. What's your opinion on the urethane vs the acrylic epoxy gloss?

Thanks

I thinks the urethane has alot more even shine to it and the paint seems to lay down better. From what I can remember, the shine on the 229 was a little "smokey" (at least in the black color) and seemed to oxidize. I have not used the 229 in a few years though. We also use the 235 bar rust most "general "painting.
