Right, BUT you need to look at the spread rates as well.I just have a hard time thinking one coat of Duration is better than two of Super. And price wise, one of Duration is cheaper than two of Super. EASY up sell but I don't believe it... I might be wrong since I'm not a chemist or since I haven't been in business long enough to see the difference between 25 years and lifetime...
Duration ext flat recommended spread rate 250-300' per gal 2.8mil DFT
Superpaint ext flat recommended spread rate 350-400' per gal 1.6mil DFT
So you need almost 2 coats of superpaint to equal the same DFT ( Dry film thickness ) of Duration, but the trade off is the spread rate. You'll use more product with Duration per coat.
