Ahesion was a key characteristics we sought in a sail paint, but we were also interested in opacity.
- After six months, Benjamin Moore paint was chipped widely and it peeled when the sail was bent.
- MDR/Amazons paint was still flexible after 6 months, and the coating was consistently adhered throughout.
- Against a strong backlight, white MDR/Amazons paint (lower half of image) was clearly more transparent than the gray.
- The Flexabar Life Ring paint did not cover well and was more transparent than the better paints.
