Ken- I am not a chemist, but I thought Imron (Dupont) was an LP (linear polyurethane) not an epoxy. What is the difference between the two? After I stripped the rigging, my aluminum spars were prepped and LP sprayed, without a lot of "drama" 2-years ago by the same yard that I have used to LP paint fiberglas hulls, aluminum hulls and aluminum spars, since the early 1980's. To do my mast and boom was not cheap however--$60 per lineal foot. But they are beautiful and should last 10+ years.

I don't -- I haven't used it. 

But I doubt the primer comes in different sheens, however the RO website has pretty good into and I have emailed them thru the website re: another  question -- with a fairly quick reply.

Maybe you're right Noah -- possibly it Imron, although Imron is what they used in their own manufacturing process. 

Also, we added a little flattener to cut the gloss slightly, and I'm unsure if that would have been compatible with epoxy paint.

Or I may be mistaken that it was 2-part!   

CRS -- it was ~ 18 years ago!

You are correct, Imron is a 2-part LP paint.  It's popular on airplanes.

Thanks for clarifying Ted.  I recalled it was 2-part, mistaken on my part that it was epoxy!  ( CRS from that many years ago  :D )
