Hempel LPU Topside Paint

Anyone out there that has some experience with Hempel?
In terms of durability, wear after "x" number of years?
It would be appreciated.

Used it on an alloy yacht - held up well over the 4 years I sailed it and still looking good at 7 years so I reckon that is pretty good. Some care with mixing and wait till it settles a bit before applying or else you get minor bubbles. Nice to apply by roller but sprat would be slicker.
