Durable Clear coat that is crystal clear (Not Polycrlic) for exterior applications?

Greetings,

I am finishing up my bathroom remodel. I painted my original 1947 ceramic tile in the bathroom. Before you all groan, my prep process was meticulous, and I achieved very good results that I am very happy with. I did NOT do the tub or the floors, just the vertical walls, so the long term durability factor won't be much of an issue.

There is one small area inside the shower that is horizontal, a small window ledge. It has been painted with an exterior glossy white paint that is designed for wetness, humidity, etc. But, because it is a horizontal surface within the shower, I wanted to give it extra protection. The color is bright white so I cannot use an oil based poly over it, as it will amber. I know that Minwax Polycrylic is crystal clear, but that is for interior use only and not recommended for damp or wet areas, because it is water based.

Does anyone know of a quality clear coat that is durable and made for exterior/dampness/humidity use that is also crystal clear?

Thanks for your help!

Clean And Pretty!
    A LONG while back I had cleaned and then applied an acrylic floor finish to my RV. Red Max Pro was the brand; it's no longer available but a very similar product called Zep Wet-Look Floor Finish is. The results were spectacular to say the least. A couple of years ago I renewed the application (2 easy coats, no buffing) and was pleased with the results, for the most part. Seems that I didn't get the RV clean enough before re-application and I had sealed some dirt and faded black streaks under the new acrylic coating. Since this stuff is so durable, getting it looking good again was going to be an issue. With a regular wash and wax you have to do it many more times, but there would not have been an issue with crud under the coating.

Pretty Awful, Right?
What to do? I could strip the entire coating off, all the way back to the base gel coat layer and reapply from scratch. That seemed to me to be a lot of extra work. There must be a way to "spot" treat the application and get good results. Even if they are "good enough" I would be pleased. I began by isolating a 2ft by 2ft square on the sidewall that looked pretty bad. No amount of polishing by hand or power buffer was making any difference, so I decided to try some light scratch compound. This definitely worked, but was pretty harsh and required a steady hand and the right amount of pressure to work properly. I had read about using the same brand floor stripper to remove the acrylic coating, but was concerned over the use of even more chemicals on my gel coat finish (not to mention my hands!)

Close Up, Ready For New Acrylic.
Ultimately, I used a combination of Magic Eraserfor REALLY bad spots and simple light buffing with "Barkeeper's Friend" (a not-too-harsh abrasive powder.) Once the bad stuff was gone, a new coating of acrylic was applied the same way I did the first time. The new coating allegedly will blend with the existing coating where it was still in good shape. After all this is finally done, I will likely go over the coating with a single (or maybe a double) light coat to make sure everything is sealed for the season. Looks like the deep shine WILL come back easily enough. I was a bit worried I would have to strip and re-do the entire RV! No fun at all.


If I would have properly re-applied last year, this problem would have never surfaced. It's all my fault. I was in a rush. That never works. Trust me! All in all, after almost 4 years (in 4 season weather) it still looks GREAT! If I had to wax my RV, no matter that it's pretty small, it would be lots of work and have to be done MANY times in a season, especially on the nose. This type of coating isn't for everyone. Since it's a floor finish, you can never get it glass smooth. Obviously, right? Who wants a really slick and slippery floor unless you're skating!?!

HOW TO USE ZEP WET LOOK FLOOR FINISH ON THE OUTSIDE OF AN RV

There are several articles on using Red Max Pro 3 floor sealant from Lowes on dull RV paintwork, and we had the honor of watching Pancake Bill working hard on his coach in Yellowstone last fall (we did shout occasional encouragement though as we popped another beer…).

We finally got round to getting the ingredients last week to do the job on our 2000 Adventurer which is badly oxydized. The decals also need replacement which we’re considering doing early next year.

Red Max Pro 3 is not available any more from Lowes (certainly not anywhere in AZ) so we found that Home Depot have it listed as Zep Wet Look Floor Finish. This is exactly the same product, simply re-badged. See http://tinyurl.com/7ktf964

I came across an article which I’m reproducing here with thanks to the author. I have however replaced his references to Red Max Pro 3 with Zep Wet Look Floor Finish (ZWLFF). The process is working just great for us – we’ve done a trial one-third of the right side between the rear corner and the awning support leg, and it’s already looking great. We’ll finish the rest of the coach this week.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
This process is for older RVs that have lost their shine and no longer respond to conventional wax.

Restoring the finish of an older RV using ZWLFF:

Materials:
-Zep Wet Look Floor finish (Step 3) (available at Home Depot)
-Bar Keeper’s Friend (powdered)
-TSP (Trisodium Phosphate, powdered)
-3M scrubbies (white, fine)
-Microfiber rags (white or laundered)
-Latex gloves

Preparing the surface is the most important part, since anything left on the surface will be sealed under the ZWLFF acrylic coating, and improper prep can also result in peeling/flaking later. I repeat: The prep-work is the most important part! Do not try to cut corners here. The cleaner your RV is, the better your final results will be.

Step 1: Start by washing your RV well as you normally would, making sure to include the roof, and rinsing well from the top down.

Step 2: You now want to remove any and all stains, soiling, oxidation, and chalkiness from the surface. Dip a white 3M scrubbie into water and then liberally sprinkle Bar Keeper’s Friend (BKF) on it. Scrub the surface of the motorhome, rinsing the scrubbie and re-applying the BKF often. Do small areas at a time, rinsing well with water and a sponge as you go (Rinsing well is important to remove all BKF residue. I used a “flow-thru” brush attached to a hose to rinse the BKF residue thoroughly).

Step 3: Next you want to make sure that there is absolutely no remaining wax on the RV, since any residual wax can cause the ZWLFF to peel and flake. Mix up a bucket of TSP (1/2 cup) in water (2 gal), and use it to wash the entire RV again. You can use it with a carwash brush, a sponge, a pressure washer…anything you would normally use to wash your RV. Rinse well as you go, then rinse again and let it dry completely (again, rinsing well is important to remove all TSP residue). You should now be left with a clean and smooth (although dull) wax-free surface. Congrats, the hard part is done!

Step 4: Now comes the easy part. Shake the ZWLFF well, and pour some into a shallow container (a pie pan works well). Fold a microfiber rag to about hand-sized, dip it into the ZWLFF (trust me, use gloves!), and squeeze out the excess. How much/how wet? You want it more than damp, but less than dripping. Now simply wipe down the surface of the RV with the wet microfiber rag. Don’t try to apply a heavy coat or try to “rub it in”; just wet the surface (imagine wiping off a layer of dust with a damp rag). It really doesn’t matter whether you wipe horizontally, vertically, or in circles, and don’t worry about overlaps; ZWLFF is very thin/watery and you are just trying to “moisten” the surface. Work your way all the way around the RV. The thin coat of ZWLFF will dry very quickly; long before you’ve gone all the way around it will be dry and you can immediately start on the next coat.

That first coat will likely look really bad; streaky, blotchy, shiny in some places, dull in others…don’t panic. Each additional coat will start to even it out and build up a deep layer of shine. By coat 3, you will be grinning ear to ear. And coat 4 (or 5?) will be the icing on the cake. Not only will your RV shine like it hasn’t shined in years, it will be a deeper color as well*. Even old, faded graphics will have a new lease on life! All for less than $30 total!

*Note: This procedure will slightly change/darken the color/shade of your RV.

Things (I learned) to keep in mind:

-Don’t use new colored microfiber rags until they have been laundered, as the color may bleed.

-Don’t try to “over-apply”, or try for a heavy coat, or you will get runs. The thinner, the better. Remember, you’re just trying to “moisten” the surface with each thin coat, nothing more. If you are getting a lot of runs, you’re applying it too heavily.

-Be careful around window frames, locks, latches, etc., as the ZWLFF is very watery and will have a tendency to gather and cause runs. ZWLFF dries fast, so keep an eye out for any runs and give them a quick wipe before they start to “set up”.

-Some older, deteriorated graphics may “bleed” color onto the rag and surrounding areas. If you notice any bleeding during the BKF or TSP stage (steps 2 and 3), then give a quick wipe of ZWLFF across the graphics prior to step 4, which will seal them up. Then go ahead and apply the ZWLFF to the entire RV (including the now sealed graphics) as per step 4 of the tutorial.

-After each coat, go around and open/operate all hatches, locks, catches, etc. The ZWLFF acrylic coating can sort of “glue” them closed.

How To Sand and Finish Wood Floors

Red Max Pro on a Fiver!! WOW!!

Any of us with older units really tend to envy all the bright, new and shiny Heartlands we see...well got tired of the envy thing and decided to do something about it!

Our '08 Bighorn, built in July '07, was starting to show her age, mainly due to being out in the scorching sun for more than five years....almost exclusively in the southern states. She had really lost her luster, especially on the caps, and the off-door side, which got the most direct sun all winter in the RGV...WELL...look at her now!! We spent three days using a process that stripped everything off, all wax, etc. and then put four coats of Red Max Pro, an acrylic high-shine floor finish...we are absolutely amazed at the results!!

IMAG0078.jpgIMAG0073.jpgIMAG0077.jpg

Look at how she shines as pretty as that brand new Redwood she's next to! Her graphics look brand new, I can see my reflection even in the cap and all the blotchy, patchy looking areas from years of waxing are smooth and shiny again! And this is after towing her over a 1,000 miles and she really needs a bath. The best part is, to keep her looking this good, just have to give her a regular good washing, let her dry completely and add another coat of RMP once or twice a year. This stuff does NOT yellow or build up...really keeps her looking good...the prep work however as a REAL JOB!! But that's done now...

Did months of research on this process, saw many, many like results before jumping in and giving it a try...so glad we did!!

If you find a later model GMC with factory paint it will be Dupont Imaron (?) and will likely buff out to a nice finish. My �76 Palm Beach buffed up so pretty I shamed my buddy with his Flair SOB.

Still, there is only so much you can do with 35 year old paint.

C'mon, I'm daydreaming here! Very Happy I'm going to find a beautifully restored rig that just needs a little spit and polish for under $5k. Right? RIGHT?!

(I know you're right - but since the other half is the one doing all the mechanical stuff, I get to try to make it all pretty. And this stuff sounds like a lot of bang for your buck for $15 a gallon!)

I'll chime in on this one.

Red Max, as a name at Lowe's, is being discontinued. The Zep name is what
you'll see available at all Lowe's.

Having said that what you'll see on a number of other forums is that this
floor finish works well on fiberglass, gel coat (which is what a lot of
the big box motorhomes and trailers without full-body paint have for the
off white area), tile, concrete, and just about anything else. It goes on
very easily, dries quickly, and can be given a second or third coat to
your heart's content (I wouldn't go farther than that). It lasts for many
months and makes what's old look new with 1/5th the labor of
waxing/polishing the old way -- you know -- wax on, wax off, buff, buff,
buff. There is no buffing with this stuff.

In fact, I know a guy that put it on the camper body of his class b and
liked the shine so much he put in on his faded cab parts and made it look
very good. The truck was a 92 of some sort.

No one has reported using it on a GMC but if the paint looks chalky I'd
say it's a good candidate for the Zep/wet look.

I now own a flat-nosed Airstream on Freightliner and I used the stuff on
the textured fiberglass roof. Wow, the water beads like crazy and still
does two months after the application. The roof is very shiny, too.
Sunglasses are required even on a cloudy day when walking around up there.

RE: concerning Imaron paint brightening:

from hot rod mag.

auto detailing with Imaron paint:

IMRON is one of the few paint systems that is tough enough to be sanded and then buffed back to a wet-look shine. Once all the painting was complete the car�s body was lightly power and hand sanded with 2000-grit paper in selected areas. The sanding was done anywhere a tape line appeared in the finish. The objective of the sanding was to remove the �bump� that remained after painting where the edge of a strip of masking tape had been.

After sanding 3M�s Imperial Microfinishing Compound (#06011) was applied with a wool pad applicator on a polisher/buffer. Following this application the surface was further enhanced with 3M�s Finesse-it Finishing Material (#05928) again applied with a wool pad applicator on a polisher/buffer. The final step, shown being performed in the above photograph, was a foam pad polishing using 3M�s Perfect-It Foam Polishing Pad Glaze (#05995)


I would not sand it for this was for a new finish that had tape lines.

THe second paragraph seems important:

I have seen neither yellowing or cracking.  Perhaps the white color of my RV makes it difficult to see any yellowing.  I do have some dark decals and do not see yellowing in those areas either.   I suspect the "cracking" is similar to poor adhesion.  Pealing has been reported as an issue.  As I mentioned, surface prep is important.  Zep is not going to adhere well if old wax, dried bugs, road oils or other contaminants are left on the surface.  Dilute ammonia will remove almost all of the contaminants but I also recommend a light scrubbing with a scotch pad and bar keepers friend or a similar mild abrasive cleaner.Â.

The main issue with ZEP is proper prep.  It is essential to remove all old waxes.  I started with a thorough wash, then washed again with a solution of ammonia.  Finally I used bar keepers friend and a scotch pad to scrub the entire RV.  Application can be done with a long handled sponge but the best way is by hand with a rag slightly dampened in ZEP.  It takes at least two thin coats to achieve an acceptable finish and a couple of additional coats to build up a durable finish.  Thin coats avoid any drips and sags to give the best possible finish. Â, I don't think that I'm up for the amount of prep work that you did!Â, Scrubbing with bar keepers friend takes about the same time and work as applying a coat of regular wax.  So far that has  lasted 5 years.

Whats people lookup in this blog: Zep High Traffic Floor Polish On Rv ← February 24, 2020 in General RV Information, My RV has been sitting unused for over a year.  I am getting ready for a long trip.  We had some warm weather so I washed the RV.  The roof took a lot of work.  It was covered with rotten leaves, moss, dirt, twigs, etc.  All of the rain water and snow hit all that gunk and then ran over the sides of the RV.  In past years I would have had nasty black streaks and dirt everywhere.  Aside from the roof clean up, today a quick rinse on the rest of the RV brought it back to looking like new.  The water even beaded up on the surface of the RV. Â.

twitter announced today that it will be removing its implementation of stories dubbed “fleets.” the feature was either loved or hated by twitter users since its initial release last year.

this short-lived feature, which was released in november of last year, will be removed on august 3. twitter acknowledged the controversial nature of the snapchat/instagram clone with the farewell tweet. notably, there was no fleet from the main twitter account announcing the departure of the feature, only a standard tweet.

in the goodbye, the company said it is working on “new stuff.” one can hope that they add the ability to edit tweets, in addition to the new edit audience and monetization features.

in a more detailed blog post, twitter shared that it hoped fleets would make people more comfortable posting onto twitter. as fleets disappear, some of the fleet creation features, like gifs and stickers, will be implemented into the standard tweets composer.
