INTERLUX Brightside® One-Part Polyurethane Paint

Produces the look of a two-part polyurethane with the application ease of a one-part enamel

Brightside® Polyurethane is a hard, high gloss one-part polyurethane topside finish. Excellent application characteristics yield that “sprayed on” look when brush applied in thin coats and is ideal for use anywhere above the true waterline. Contains fluoro-micro additives for stain/abrasion resistance and easy cleaning plus UV stabilizers for high gloss and color retention. Brightside provides excellent abrasion and chemical resistance and is self-leveling. May be brushed or sprayed on fiberglass, wood, aluminum or steel. For best results use Pre-Kote® Primer, Model 492876. VOC compliant.

  • Base Formulation: One-part polyurethane with fluoro-micro additives
  • Recommended Application Method: Brush, roller, airless/conventional spray
  • Number of Coats Recommended: Two
  • Primer Needed: Pre-Kote Primer, Model 492876

Decades ago boat paint was expensive and was frequently a disappointing waste: We used to recommend our builders use cheaper, better-performing hardware-store varieties. Not any longer! Boat paint can still be expensive, but it can sure deliver! Brightside is great stuff: flows on nicely, glosses amazingly, and we've seen it survive amazing conditions. It covers VERY well, so the justifiable expense is well worth it, in our estimation. The simple nature of the one-part linear polyurethane is super-easy. In fact, having compared this to Interlux's two-part, we would almost ALWAYS choose the Brightside one-part. The two-part paint doesn't cover anywhere near as well, is more trouble to prepare, and overall less satisfying paint to our mind. Granted, the two-part is really tough when cured, but the Brightside is fine paint and our choice for most situations.
Four of Five Stars as it is a bit expensive (although pretty much worth it) and the range of colors is limited (LOTS of great blues, a very nice red; the colors are aimed at boating, and they fit.) I have yet to try mixing colors to see how that works, and plan to as we have a couple projects which require more varied shades than are canned.
Good stuff: Buy it!

      Comments about Interlux Brightside Polyurethane Paint, Off White, Quart:

      I've used this product before with excellent top coat deck coverage. Simple foam roller with minimal brush tipping. Since this is a polyurethane product, effects of crazing becomes apparent after 3 years.

          • Cabin Topsides
          • Non-skid

          Comments about Interlux Brightside Polyurethane Paint, Hatteras Off White, Quart:

          -Used Brightside to cover worn out gel-coat on cabin top and sides.
          -Needs thinning at 25-35% (not 10% as product instructions state) to get a smooth uniform finish with foam roller or brush.
          -It comes out great with two coats; smooth, no brush marks, looks as if sprayed professionally with a lasting professional shine.
          -Very durable on non skid areas like cabin top and cockpit floor where heavy foot traffic.
          -Used this product before and it lasted for 8 years with only mild decrease in shine until Hurricane Katrina took the boat.

              Using a roller and foam brush, you can get a high gloss finish. I used on a number of sailboats including an Ice Boat which takes a lot of abuse on the ice.

                Comments about Interlux Brightside Polyurethane Paint, Off White, Quart:

                One part commercial grade paint makes it easy for repairs to fiberglass and other non-weather plastics exposed to weather. I use it on my 17 year old RV. The cost is reasonable considering the quality and ease of application. The cost of the thinner for cleaning brushes is too high which forces me to use MEK or acetone purchased anywhere.
