Good point Kevin, thanks
I would recommend against using colorquartz. The UV rays will break down the epoxy. If it cracks and moisture get under it, it will peel up. My company manufactures the colorquartz, PM me if you have any questions.
Good point Kevin, thanks
I was considering using the spray on truck bed liner. It comes in any color, is non-slip and tough. It will probably flex better than anything else too and no cracks between the tiles.
Now, if someone else will try it on their boat first....
Listen to cuda about it turning brown.
I have it in my work area, it's a great non-slip foor. At one end of my facility I have a large overhead door and that area is turning color even though it's never left open for more than 5 minutes at a time, maybe 3 times a week.
Six months after having it applied we complained about it changing color. We had a manufacturers rep and the contractor come in to look at it. Manufacturer paid to sandblast the entire floor and resurface it.
As for the coarseness, you can control that by how much top sealer is applied. We used more sealer in my office and less in the work areas for a more agressive grip.
Ours is Dur-A-Quartz Flooring from Dur-A-Flex Inc.
It only takes about two hours for it to amber on a bright sunny day.
My thoughts exactly.Originally posted by cuda
The UV really won't weaken the epoxy, but it will turn it brown.
I emailed the factory about using urethane for sealer to reduce ambering. Here is their response.
We are looking at using a urethane as the sealer for this very reason. However the urethanes are thin so multiple coats are required and they typically have solvents. Ambering will be reduce but not eliminated. We are evaluating a different hardener that should have less ambering and I will keep you informed. Give me a call on my cell if you have any questions.
Wildfire, now that's the ticket. My brother owns a Line-X frachise in NE NC. I had him spray one of my decks. The stuff is bullet proof and quite flexible. If I was going to all the trouble to coat the cockpit with a permanent material I would definitely choose Line-X over the fluid applied epoxy.
As with any permanent coating....surface preparation is key.
