When it comes to performance and longevity a gloss topcoat will outperform a satin topcoat due to reflectivity. A smooth glossy surface reflects more UV light.
The next factor is cleanliness. The smooth, slick surface of Advance Gloss sheds dirt easier than the Advance Satin. That’s because the flatting agent used in the Satin results in microscopic imperfections in the surface of the finish where airborne dust, pollen and pollutants can lodge. Although they can be removed with a good washing, it takes a bit more effort than removing dirt from a glossy surface.
The last factor, at least in the Southeast, relates to how Advance Gloss reduces carpenter bee damage. Perma-Chink Systems did a survey of customers who used either Advance Satin or Gloss topcoats and the results clearly revealed the Gloss topcoat substantially reduced the number of carpenter bee holes. Although there was some reduction in carpenter bee activity using Advance Satin it was not nearly as significant as the Advance Gloss.
Whenever requesting exterior finish samples, include a sample of Advance Gloss even if you are only interested in Advance Satin. You may end up choosing the Gloss because of the way it looks and how it highlights the color of the Ultra 2 or Ultra 7.
Since any Lifeline Exterior product may be applied OVER an existing coat of Lifeline Advance Top Coat
future maintenance will be simple and easy to perform.
