I have some information followed by a question. I hope that it helps and I hope that someone can help me.
I am researching finishes to use to restore my Sovereign
. I have read many threads in the Forum talking about the question of materials and sort of settled on Tough as Tile. Below is an exchange between Gleem Paint and me the Manufacturer? Distributor of Tough as Tile. In reality I probably shouldnít care if the stuff lasts more than a few years, but Iíd like to do it the best possible way.
The other product that looked promising was Tubby a two-part epoxy. It comes in a few acceptable colors and states that it is good for, among other things, fiberglass and acrylic. I e-mailed them with a few of the same questions and didnít get a response. I re-sent a few days later and didnít get a response. I believe that Tubby is manufactured in England but e-mail doesnít go by boat -unless Iíve been lied to. I figured that if they didnít respond they couldnít care less for my business. I am now stuck.
Does anyone have any input to this? Some of the threads did a great job documenting the first phases of the re-finishing but never followed through with the immediate, or long-term results.
Can someone help?

I'm refinishing a tub/shower in an Airstream trailer.
1. Does Tough as Tile remain somewhat flexible?
2. Can the TAT be color tinted? If so, how can I get the color I want?
3. Is there a temperature range it should be applied at?
4. Can it be rolled on and if so will it flow out or will it have orange
peels? Or is the flowing and leveling process temperature related?
Thanks for your help,
1. Yes at first, but in time ( years) will become more and more brittle.
I would not recommend it for this reason, I would look for true 2 part
epoxy verse a one part. You should be able to find one at a local paint
store. (we current do no have a shippable 2 part epoxy)
