Final Coating on Poppers

5 posts in this topic

Which would you prefer for a final coat (after primer and acrylic paint). Polyurethane Clear Gloss or Devcon 2 Ton Epoxy? Most of you may prefer the epoxy but does anyone know if the Polyurethane would work almost as well?:huh:

thanks

Can somone please tell me? I'm at the final stage and don't know what to use. Also, if I use epoxy what do I apply it with? A paint brush?

Go ahead and use devcon if that's all you have. Any medium stiffness, non-shedding brush will work, just make sure to rotate it after.

Epoxy - the specific product is critical to get the right work time, leveling and clarity. Many use either Devcon 2 Ton or Envirotex Lite brands. For a fairly large popper, the thicker clearcoat of epoxy will work just fine. Since a popper doesn't bang much cover, polyurethane is also a viable option IMO but it can be hard to find tough non-yellowing polys. Whichever, brush it on.
