    Is anyone using this paint? System 3 is one I looked at. Uses water to thin/reduce and is supposed to be much more enviro friendly.

    I noticed that there are almost no replies to your question. Years ago I order a sample of the water based LPU that System Three sells. I've used a lot of their epoxies over the years and have been really happy with their resins. It's been so long ago (at least 10 years) that I can't remember why I didn't go with their paint but I ended up using Interlux Perfection and have ever since. I have a feeling that the water based LPU's just don't perform on par with the chemical based products. If the water based products worked as well, they would have taken over the market.

    I notice that they offer a 4 oz sample kit. Why not try it and see how you like the application?

    I've decided to use the system 3. I've sprayed the perfection plus and had good results with it but I'm doing this in a residential area and some of the work will be outside. Thanks.
