U-40 Perma Gloss

Product Details

The ultimate one-part urethane rod finish. For those requiring a water-clear, non-yellowing finish that will outlast the rod itself in durability.

The perfect finish for fly rods, light and medium spin rods, pack rods, and in all cases where a large bulky buildup on the rod windings is objectionable.

The perfect finish for any rod subject to constant sun and weather. An excellent coating for wood reel seats.

I use this perma gloss when repairing rods after repainting. I gives a smooth glossy finish.

U-40 Perma Gloss

Relatively new to using Perma Gloss, bought this product for restoring vintage rods that have had poor care. With a little prep, they can look practically new again.
On new builds, i am using it primarily on Deco Wraps and Decals. It works and looks great on decals if you apply and least one or two coats first, then apply the decal and a couple of more coats over top. One caution, is when applying a decal over a thread wrap. Up to 4 coats of U40 Perma Gloss, and the thread ridges still remain and can be seen under the decal. To help this, I now apply two coats Perma Gloss, then one coat of Gen 4 epoxy. apply the decal on the Gen 4 epoxy then two or more coats of Perma Gloss. One thing to watch for, is that the U40 Perma Gloss can remove some the writing on the Decals. I have noticed this most on the Gold colors on the MHX Rod Spec Decal. I have not tried CP coating the decal yet, but that might help.

Rod urethane

I’m new to hobby first off. I decided to refresh a few spinning rods with new guides and finish. The guide part I think I can handle. The finish part is another story. My third attempt at getting a smooth surface and finish is still pending. My first two attempts were less than perfect or satisfactory. My third attempt I tried hanging the pole vertically in daylight hoping to not miss any spots. The most difficulty I have found with product is that seems to get tacky too quickly hence making it difficult to get a smooth finish. I’m sure there are better ways to accomplish this task.

This stuff dries quick, make sure you load enough on the brush for smooth application, the stuff also smells, use in a well ventilated room, store in a Ziploc in a cool dry place, tends to dry on the cap though!
