It is down to the wire for the boat building; this next week it will be time for boat using.
We need a final protective coating for the boats, something that will protect against UV from the sun and give it a nice finished look.
I have been researching types of paint outside of class.
We need something that:
- will stick to epoxy
- is environmentally friendly
- will protect the boat
- will not flake off when stressed
- is as cheap as we can get
Acrylic latex porch and floor paint- still cheap, less volatile chemicals, may not stick as well to epoxy, may not be a durable.
I think we should test the latex paint, that way we can paint it on with out having to use a respirator mask. It will impact the environment less as well.
What does everyone else think?
