Anyone used this coating/paint for there warps?

Postby 444kyle » Fri Dec 30, 2016 10:36 am

Going to redo my blades. I was wandering if any one has used this instead a normal lacquer. Wanting to go with something that will hold up a little longer. I was looking for a hard clear coat to just put over the standard lacquer then found this. Just wanted to know if any one has used it.

Here is there description from tempo-
Tempos Epoxy Propeller Coating is formulated with the extra adhesion and abrasion resistance needed to protect propellers from corrosion and wear. Compared to standard enamel and lacquer paints, our epoxy formula stays on the blade more flying hours; hence, with regular use, this formula can extend blade life.

Whatever coating you decide to use, you will need to rebalance the blades. When we recoated our wood props we would mount them on a horizontal shaft with bearings. The slightest bit of spray on one blade would cause it to drop.
