Anyone have experience using ArmorPoxy's one part epoxy? We used there Milspec floor coating in the downstairs of the fire house and I am impressed with the durability.

ArmorPoxy is supposed to very durable, long lasting, provide UV protection, and be easy to apply (one part no mixing). I originally planned to use a Marine grade Polyurethane but after doing some research think that there will be more maintenance and upkeep than I wanted. ArmorPoxy claims it will last 20 years... I don't know about that but I would be happy with half that!

This is the paint I want to use on mine also. All I know is what I have read at the site. Looks great though.

I used armorpoxy on my tear last summer. It sealed up really nice but took about a week to dry, and I haven't had any leaks yet.
Only thing that I didn't like about it is that it doesn't stay shiny, I bought the bright white gloss and it went dull after a couple months. Now it looks almost like a satin or semi flat paint.

I wonder if a coat of Clear would fix that.
How did it do on bare aluminum? Did you have any?

I just used it over wood, painting the whole tear, then added the aluminum edge trim.
