Its the best or one of, same company overseas makes it for Upol and Spies and even though a liter costs more then a gallon of the common stuff, just no comparison in my book.

Way it sprays, sands and lays down.

Sprays best out of a 2.2-2.8 gun.

Pot life is lousy, so be aware and run thinner through gun between fill ups or it can kick on you.

Another thing I learned with this stuff, when I do use it.

I have 100 grit Velcro air file paper, only for this application.

I let the last coat dry about 45-60 minutes, then do my rough blocking with my air file, i let set over night and then apply the 2k primer for normal blocking.

Reason is this stuff seems to wound real tight and does get hard to sand as it sets.
