  • I just got everyone a deal

    On Awlgrip Paint.

    Man, I just got everyone a deal on Awlgrip Paint. I didn't know they sell it. This is a buddy of my babby brother John.

    Mark johnson. Johnson Supply in pensacola,Fl. [850]434-7103

    Here's an example of prices

    Awlgrip jet Black -Brown Marine $44,25qt

    Johbson Supply $30.05qt

    Awlgrip Stark White- Brown Marine $45.92

    Johnson Supply $31.82

    They don't stock any primer, but I asked Mark if he would start stocking 545 primer. He said yes If I get enough call for it.

    I also found out that US Paints was bought out by some company. Can't remember the name he said.

    This was all done, due to the aerospace industry. There is a lot going on behind the seans that you and I don't know about. All we care about is our boat's. Now if I told you I painted my boat with DEFT Paint, you would say what the hell is that.

    Well it's the same thing a Awlgrip, but with a mill spec. It's got the same long name as Awlgrip. The military uses DEFT to paint the Airplanes. The Blue Angles are painted with it.

    Interlux bought US Paints and now manufactures Awlgrip, but still markets it under the US Paints brand. I was at the Interlux US headquarters n Union, NJ last year and they had the US Paints logo on the side of the building right under theirs. I discussed it with Bob Donat, the president, and he confirmed the acquistion.

      Hmmmmm! Mark Johnson told me the name of the company, but it wasn't Interlux. I would have remembered that easily. I wonder if there is a parent company that own's both?

        Actuall it was Akzo-Nobel that bought US Paints. They also own Interlux.

        Here's a little bit from the Awlgrip site.

        It was in direct recognition of Awlgrip®’s widespread professional esteem that Akzo Nobel decided that its expansion into this sector of the global yacht market would be best served by the acquisition of the Saint Louis-based coatings specialists.
