Re: Favorite roller for hard ablative?

I've used the ArroWorthy brand Mohair rollers (the red, short nap ones) with Micron CSC and had no issues with them degrading before I was done. Being a short nap roller it's fairly easy to put on thin coats and not go too thick.

I used to happily use a commodity 3/8-inch nap, Solvent Resistant Polyester Nap and Core Roller cover.

Rollers with a Phenolic core are the go-to for harsh paints. Redtree makes a good line of them.

Re: Favorite roller for hard ablative?

No help here, just a comment on the rollers I used.

I use what every roller the store had that I shopped at.

Most held together pretty well for the first hour or so then various pieces of the rollers would be stuck on the bottom in the paint.

I would scrape them off at first but later realized it wasn't really a problem as most of the small chucks of roller were well below the waterline and would be washed off at some point.

I put on 3 coats (2 gallons) of ACT Interlux over the Winter (plus some pieces of rollers).

The same rollers did fine with the topside paint.
