Default zip-Guard

Friend of mine (paperhanger) was talking about coating his new front door with Zip-Guard. Said he's used it for all his urethane projects and it holds up really well.

What's the professional opinion. I assume, knowing him, he's using the original formula the 450VOC.

And what's the difference between a POLY-urethane and a Urethane?

For my pasting table, I like marine spar varnish because of the soft durable finish that tends to self heal if I do scratch it when trimming, but the good stuff is getting very expensive and as you know, one needs a stretch of perfect days to lay on four or five coats.

Does Zip-Guard give a typical brittle finish like a poly-urethane? Or is it more like a good marine spar varnish ?

I'm not worrying about UV protection or yellowing.

Another feature I like about the varnish is that it's not as slippery as poly-urethane.

any way, give me your take on Zip-Guard.


What a long strange trip it's been
