Cloverdale paint sales rep contacted me recently to set up an account. He mentioned the ecologic.

What are your experiences with it in comparison to HP2000?

coverage?
cured feeling? (HP2000 is nice and hard)
how is it to work with?
spray?

ecologic > hp2000

Ecologic is a fantastic trim paint ....It covers well and goes on super smooth...It also sprays great..HP is also good but it stinks like hell because of the ammonia in it...That said, it is a great exterior paint and is tough as hell...

I totally agree with you, although I prefer using HP2000 due to a better customer service from GP than Cloverdale, but that's just me, both good paints!

HP2000 ( HP stands for High Performance ) from General Paint up here in Canada

Only problem, is that last summer I noticed it was tacking up WAY too quickly on me while working on some complicated windows. Cutting it back or using a conditioner helped a bit, but the problem was never fully resolved.

I was a little disappointed, but that was the only time I had this issue. Works great inside too. ( it's an interior/exterior product, I was surprised at first )

One paint that I really love for exterior doors however is BM Metal and Wood.

My old supplier called it Impervo ( but not the satin which is interior only, this is a gloss finish ) It's oil base and almost bulletproof when applied properly. Super smooth almost mirror like finish with a good brush and a foam roller.

Oh. Never heard of General Paint. I use the moorgaurd or sw A-100. Tacking up too fast sucks.

Yes, it is Impervo. Used it a quite a bit actually. Did all the outside time and pergola on a house last summer. Lap siding was Iron Clad metal and wood satin. Nice looking house. All white with black shutters and black door.

Only reason I wasn't too sure, is because I had mentioned the name "Impervo" on this forum last summer and everyone thought I was nuts using an interior paint on a front door or something :p

I'm actually using it on a job coming up in a few weeks here. A bunch of black trim and doors, I'm glad they have a pre-mix black, maybe we'll get a full season out of it that way

Actually I did a roof ( yes a roof ) about 3 seasons ago with the collection exterior low lustre pre-mix and the color held up MUCH better than expected.

I also trust Iron Clad a little more than Impervo for exterior use.

Moore Guard/Glow. But have been moving to Aura exterior more and more. Just make sure to use the extender in the heat of the summer!
