Ok, anybody know anything about it? Particularly interested in any reviews on usage... Bottom or topside. Just heard about it. Sounds interesting, and at 3/4 cost of awlgrip, I wanna know more.

Re: Nervion marine paint

Here's what I know. Nervion originally based in Mexico, now has some facilities in the US as well. The paints they make service the aeronautical market i.e. Jets and other aircraft use it because it has extraordinary adhesion to aluminum. It is also used on tankers in the marine industry. And they claim to adhere well to a host of other substrates too, including fiberglass. They are now trying to break into the general boating market with topsides and a/f bottom paints. Guy next to me in the yard has been given paint as a beta test by a friend who works for the company. So far he has sprayed one primer coat. Looks as good as a primer can look. Gonna do another primer coat, then 2 finish coats. He tells me, quoting his Nervion friend, they coated a sheet of aluminum with it in Mexico and submerged it in salt water for one year. When they retrieved it, they "swiped the slime off by hand". ANYBODY KNOW ANYTHING MORE?
