Tough As Tile

I just finished the 1st coat on the lavaratte (bathroom sink/counter) in my 71 Tradewind and am very pleased with the result so far. 2nd coat tomorrow. It looks like I will use less than half a pint for both coats, so I ran into my Sovereign and did a quick prep to use up the extra.

The Tough as Tile folks told me not to use it on plastic that is subject to flex. They said if the paint is subjected to flex it will crack, chip, and flake off. This is the case both on the wet bathroom floor of the Tradewind and the tub in the Sovereign. They both flex when you stand on them or sit on them.

Can anyone tell me if you have had any luck with Tough As Tile in tubs and shower pans?

How did this work out for you? I'm thinking of using this product rather than Tubby since it is substantially less expensive.

Lumatic did you go ahead with the product on the tub?
Been long enough now that you prob, have used it few times if you did paint it.
Not sure how much flex the tubs do in rear baths? Good question needs an answer.

When I pulled our plastics out of the bathroom to recoat, they seemed very easy to flex. Even after remounted (and I put some extra bracing on them), they still flex some just pushing in certain spots. I would inagine, driving around, they would flex alot since they are mounted to both the aluminum walls and interior walls. We tried a product called TileDoc but only applied it 2 months ago and haven't used the trailer yet so can't tell you if it holds up or not. Seemed to adhere really good and it flexes with the plastic. Anything you use though, make sure you prep it well. Nothing will stick good to smooth surfaces.

Here's another company I ran across the other day while looking for epoxy to do a stone inlay. Looks nice....
