As the industry leader in luxury yacht coatings, we know that a ‘good’ finish just isn’t good enough. Polyurethane topcoats have been the industry standard for over 40 years, which got us thinking – how can we do better? How can we drive the future of topcoats?

As we developed our next generation topcoat, it was important to us that applicators were involved from the very start. By listening to painters, we were able to deliver properties such as repairability, excellent hold-up and the potential for a two-coat application, leading to an even better finish as a result.

The final step was to add color, resulting in Awlgrip HDT – a whole new level in polyurethane topcoats, designed by painters, for painters.
