Looks like Shark Hide. It was mentioned in a thread here a few years back but I don't believe anyone tried it. It is available in aerosol can.

Might have to give this a go!

They mention that they used it on anodized alluminum... Would there be any real benefit of that for us?

The Nano coating had uv inhibitors so I put it over my ano'd bar/wings to keep them from fading. Worked great for at least a year. Everything still looks brand new. I wonder if this stuff is as tough?

My guess is no as Everbrite can be taken off with acetone. Once Nano cures it must be soaked in gas for hours to soften it up for removal.

I called Everbrite today. The self leveling product can be touched up and you can put multiple coats on. If your polish has acid in it (like mothers) you need to neutralize it before application. They recommend MAAS Polish as it does not have acid ( http://www.maasinc.com/ )

ProtectaClear for any application that goes in the water.

I am ordering some today and will report back.... I plan on putting it on my fresh black ano tbar and fresh polished Stache...

First coat on top.... Self levels and unlike like Shark Hide, easy to go over areas twice. Instructions say you can put on multiple coats too. 4-5 days to cure. You can speed it up by sticking in an oven at 180 degrees after coating is dry to the touch. No rainbow haze like SH (so far). Will let dry for few hours than do bottom. It will go in the water next weekend. http://img.tapatalk.com/d/13/12/23/u7e4eza5.jpg

I think that pictures rarely do justice when trying to demonstrate gloss or sheen, but it looks like the wing has some white fuzzy areas on it now, is that true? Looking at it again, I wonder if that is actually reflection of some wispy clouds in the sky...

Does it actually still look freshly polished?

No haze.... No rainbow.... Looks freshly polished.... Felt dry to the touch in less then an hour so I flipped it and did the bottom. I had runs on the bottom from where the coating went through bolt holes. Putting the product on it took the runs right out. Also touched up the top and the product blends perfectly (unlike SH).

I will be trying it out on an ano rear wing next. If that goes well my ano tbar! I am fairly confident it will be hardier than Shark Hide. Also, buying the spray can version would make application super easy.

I did not swap out wing as I was still tuning Nots Stache... Or I was too lazy:slaphead:....

I left the wing at Parker and will not get to try the coating until PI (Feb).


I will be stripping the Ano off of my viper and once polished I will apply the coating. It will probably hit the saltwater in 2 weeks!

Update then.

Sorry.... Blame it on the Blue Mountains that got in my way at the river!

I did get some of the everbrite spray to cover the ano foils I have to see if it helps with fading. I'll let everyone know how it works out when it gets closer to riding time (April ish). Won't be able to tell on the fading till the end of the season, but I will be able to report on how it holds up. Nice thing is it's easy to remove with xylene should you want to recoat.

I went with wipe.... Shuy bought the spray. Maybe he will let us know how it went since I just saw his "unfrozen lake" news bite!

Sales lady said she liked the wipe on. It is easy to apply but I imagine the spray would be the easiest as you not have to worry about lint.

Just got back from 3 days on the Strip. Really impressed so far with the coating. I have not done the suntan lotion test to see if it leaves fingerprints like Shark Hide. http://img.tapatalk.com/d/14/03/24/u9uhypu6.jpghttp://img.tapatalk.com/d/14/03/24/2a4ubuta.jpg

I put the first coat of spray everbrite on an anodized setup. Not a whole lot to report other than it sprays on easily. I'm spraying pretty light coats to make sure it doesn't run. I think I'll go with 3 coats when it's all said and done. My goal is to keep the "gunk" off the setup that accumulates over time on anodized parts at my lake as well as keep it from fading. Only time will tell.

Does it make the Ano look brighter?

XtremeFoils
03-26-2014, 07:28 PM
Yes - same as the nano coating did. But right now I'm just doing the silver black, so I should be able to tell better when I do the blue/black or orange/black setups. 3rd coat is on - I'll let it dry overnight and see how it turned out. It went on well - had a bit of an orange peel looking texture when spraying, but that seemed to fade after a few minutes. We'll see how smooth it is once it's completely dry.

Is that the DD40 t-bar? I have not seen a t-bar with that keel profile before? Or is the picture distorted and just my imagination?

Foiler
03-26-2014, 08:57 PM
I bought some of the spray too. I haven't put it on my foil but I did spray it on a test piece. I wasn't thrilled with the uneven orange peel look but when I came back later it was completely smooth. I also sprayed some semi flat black on the test piece and even scuffed some of the paint with scotch brite. I then sprayed the protectaclear on top and it filled the scratches somewhat and made it look like glossy black. I really like it but I wonder how well it will stay on a polished aluminum surface. I think it will still get scratched but at least once it does it can easily be removed and resprayed. My goal is to leave my Tbar polished this time instead of anodizing. I sure hope it works out!!

XtremeFoils
03-27-2014, 08:10 AM
Update. Everything worked out great. I was a little worried about everything being vertical, but there were no runs or anything abnormal. And Foiler, I'm sure you could scratch this, but the beauty is it can be easily reapplied, so this stuff should be awesome if it holds up for a season. Definitely makes the ano'd stuff shine.

All I did was wipe everything down with Xylene, make sure there were no pieces of lint or anything on the surfaces, and start spraying. I used pretty thin coats since I didn't want anything running. 3 coats in all with about an hour or so between coats. I'll let these sit for a week before they see any water just to make sure.

We are going skiing this weekend if the weather holds out, so I'll do the other two setups after we get done skiing so they have time to dry also. (it says 4 to 5 days to fully cure)

And yes, Parrothead - that's the XAir (Heinrich) deep hole drilled t-bar.

The product "self levels" and " re emulsifies" when you add a second coat. Shark Hide did pretty well on the tbar but would wear from the rack strap. Everbrite is definitely a harder finish. My wings are doing well but the real test will be on the tbar. I was coating both sides at the same time wiping it on. I assume you guys are doing the same when you spray?

XtremeFoils
03-27-2014, 08:13 AM
Yes, I sprayed everything while it was hanging from the line so I coated all sides.

They make both... I bought the wipe on and it still looks perfect. When I am done with spring break I will have another 9 days of riding on the wings. I will be shooting another set of wings today as my buddy bought the spray on. I will also be shooting a comptech rack. As mentioned above the product is easier to work with compared to shark hide.

mine turned out the same way using the spray on, and its not 90 here in BC. but what I didn't do to mine was wipe it down with xylene after washing it with baking soda/water mixer as per the instructions,,, but forgot. Zoe from everbrite said that is why mine turned out like yours with the orange peel look.
i'm going to leave it for a while and see how it wears before i peel it off and try again.

Second attempt went better. Rear wing came out pretty good. The front had less orange peel this time. Still not looking the way my wiped on looks though. Wonder if there is no peel on your setups with the spray because they are ano Shu. Thicker coat seems to reduce the peel look. We sprayed in the morning this time to eliminate the heat factor.

I sprayed a piece of raw aluminum a few different ways, light and heavy coats and it was hard to get it smooth. Next day it was all perfectly smooth in the light and heavy areas. It was very cool out and in the garage. I would say, higher temp, lower humidity or any airflow will make it dry quicker and the quicker it drys the higher chance of it not self leveling like it is supposed to.

applied the aerosol after cleaning with xylene to the ano seat tower which come out great no orange peal, applied to the polished wings and BAM all orange peel, 65 degrees and low humidity. Just got off the phone with Everbright and she said for some reason the product is trying to self level to quickly on the polished surfaces which was noted by Eric above causing the orange peel, ordered the liquid for round two.

I have to second this as I too applied the spray, 3 coats, directly after polishing with no issues. Looks fantastic with no imperfections but I am a little concerned as to the durability? I lightly scratched it with a fingernail after it dried, and it chipped off rather easily.

Remember they said it takes a few days to cure. On my second coat of a front wing I did a few days ago it looks even smoother now. And appliances... Great idea. I have a dishwasher that looks like hell. Will have to clean it up and coat it.

I wonder if the chipping off easily is party since it was coated right after polishing? if it wasn't wiped down with xylene after polish and washed with soda & water, there could be a wax coating on the surface, which could have an effect of the ever bright not adhering to bare metal?
i know after I polished mine and washed it, the water beaded off the metal like it had a nice wax coating,,, next time i'll wipe it down with xylene as per the instructions and see if I get a better result.

Update on my Everbrite spray coating. Unfortunately, I didn't have any time to try the ski out before I went to the Flatland flyin, so last weekend was my first true test. Although everything looked great after the applications, the ski had several issues.

First ride it was very apparent the t-bar was hunting. It wasn't so bad I couldn't do tricks, but bad enough I couldn't totally trust the ski. After the first day, I stripped the t-bar and rode it the next day. Second test all the hunting from the t-bar went away, but there were still some cleanup issues on landings. Everything worked great, but the ski wouldn't recover after a landing which made combos impossible. Third day I put on a freshly polished front wing, and all that went away.

So unfortunately I won't be using everbrite on my ano'd parts. I'm guessing it is thick enough to cause minor issues and I want to be able to absolutely trust my ski.

That being said, I never took the time to remove the coating from the leading edges, so that could solve some if not all the problems. I just didn't have time to mess with it at the flatland.

I put on 3 coats of the stuff when I coated my parts. I'm guessing that is too much. So for those who are going to experiment, you may want fewer coats and you may want to hit the leading edges to make sure there aren't issues.

Coated my wings with everbrite for the first time tonight. Being used to sharkhide the everbrite is much thicker is did smooth out well though. It will for droplets if you put it in to heaven where as sharkhide you would really have to pour it on to do that. I hope to take my first ride next weekend so I'll see if it holds up for me.

1st try: coating came off during the first ride... my fault since I didn't wash it with xylene before coating,
2nd try: coating starting showing signs of flaking off during my first week holidays, after the second week at Pine lake it needs to be stripped off and redone.

going to try it once more since I have lots left over, but it looks like at this point shark hide out lasts ever brite for me.

EricR

Here is my recap having used both coatings for a season. SH is harder to apply as it sets up quicker and is almost impossible to touch up if you find you missed a spot. SH is not as hardy when it comes to being handled with suntan hands. It will leave finger prints. However, I too have found the Everbrite flaking off after a month of use. I also have had coatings that did not seem to adhere well and flake after first use.

not me, I gave up on it. I was hopeful it would last since it was much nicer then SH to work with. but it just won't last long enough to make it worth while. Like Eric mentioned, from one ride to a month's worth and its already coming off.

Shark Hide is still my preference.

I still have half filled cans of both. I just stripped the SH and Everbrite off of my wings and polished for Nots to use at Apache. Going to take my gear down to Geronimo to Polish and Ano next week. I did love the look of polished wings and the easy of repairing but going back to Ano.

Everbrite... worked great if it would adhere to the part. I would do front and rear wing at same time. One application would work and the other would fail. Never had the issue with the SH.

Sent from my van down by the river!
