    Default Awlgrip or Duratec

    I apologize if this has been addressed before. I looked thru floor repair threads & could not find any info regarding Awlgrip. Anyhow, my paint supplier is telling me that Awlgrip is better for flowing out the floor in my Canyon flat once repairs are done. He said I can use black Awlgrip on black areas, then flow out with clear coats once black starts to kick. I have used neither product before, but seems that everyone is using Duratec so why should I try something different??? Anybody have experience with Awlgrip compared to Duratec? Thanks so much!!!

    Forget the Awlgrip, it is mainly a yacht paint, if going to do Duratec Clear mix 50/50 black gel with Duratec shoot black, then after kicks clear all you want to have clear coated, Duratec flows out very good as well i use it all the time, My RaysonCraft did not even need polishing after shooting floors..and it looks great Black Stringers and center section with nice wood floors.

    Quick note Imron is a great alternative and can be brushed on also which I often use for the bilge , hatches , etc using no thinner other then activator applying three coats after all is said an done 1st coat is a tack coat , apply second coat and let it tack & finish it off with a third coat letting it totally dry to touch .
