Durepox paints and coatings

Durepox is a unique marine paint. It can be used as a high-build, a primer and a topcoat all in one, saving litres and hence kilograms worth of paint layers - making your boat lighter and therefore (importantly!) faster in the water.

It's an epoxy urethane which means it's extremely hard while still being flexible and highly durable - perfect for the marine environment (as well as an array of other applications). Durepox has superior adhesion to carbon fibre, fibreglass, wood and concrete. Professional boat builders / painters value Durepox's fast dry properties, sandability after three hours with no shrink back, and the ability to apply a further coats without sanding between dry times.

Durepox is used as a topcoat on racing boats because it has an excellent ability to provide a water barrier and withstand the harsh affects of the weather and marine environment. In results done by Otago Flume Laboratory they found that its satin finish gave a 15% less drag coefficient that a high gloss surface.

Durepox finishes are commonly used on the hull and deck of many boats competing prestigious races like Volvo Ocean Race and previous America's Cups. Seven of the twelve boats in the Louis Vuitton Cup and the America's Cup defender all sported Durepox finishes.

Durepox Base (Durepox 2K primer)

Durepox Base (also known as Durepox 2K Primer) is a tough, durable, 2 part epoxy urethane primer or finish coat with excellent adhesion and chemical resistance properties for use where premium protection is required. It is used by many of the world's most recognised names in the yachting, boatbuilding and industrial communities.

A unique, highly pigmented, free sanding 2 part epoxy urethane formulated for the automotive refinish, marine, industrial and aircraft industries. One of the great features of this two part product is its remarkable flexibility and adhesion to bare metal. As a 'top of the range primer', Durepox not only provides a workable stable base onto which 2 part systems may be confidently applied but is also excellent for preparing a solid foundation for top quality Alkyd, Nitro-cellulose and Acrylic Lacquer finishes.

Durepox requires a 4:1 mix ratio of base to reactor and also needs to be reduced according to application specific conditions.

Durepox Reactor (hardener)

The Durepox Reactor, or Hardener, is a clear colourless aliphatic polyisocyanate resin solution used as the hardener component for Durepox. This hardener is designed to reduce critical recoat time, increase dry time and improve chemical resistance.
