I actually like the MP 170 better than the PPG DPLF. Seems a little heavier bodied and goes on better. You are right in that less coats equal less opportunity for flaws/cantamination but does take more practice than most on here have had. Over at Morbark Inc. where I retired from , we used a 2K urethane solid orange single stage and it was designed specifically for our company and one of the specs was it had to have a dry film of 2.5-3 mils and go on in ONE coat. It did just that.We paid $30 per sprayable gal for it(no misprint..$30!) and it set up overnight so you could walk on the machine the next day.(which the hyd. hosing crew did) We used Grayco electrostatic guns and supply came from proportioners/mixers that mixed the 2 parts en-route from 55 gal drums. No pot life or mixing to worry about.Just open flush valves at end of the day and flush lines/guns. Most machines took from 20-30 gal. My one bad experience with Omni single stage urethane came with the yellow on my JD B rear cast wheel centers. Over MP 170, took 6 coats and that's without much thinner at all. Very transparent.Yes, painting for a living and especially self employed, one does tend to put a premium on the time element.

Anyone looking for a quality epoxy primer that in my opinion works a lot better than DP and costs considerably less should look into a complany called Southern Polyurethanes. It is completely compatible with all of the ppg primer and paint products I have used and still use.
For me, the PPG DP had a too much wrinkle in it, which made the paint give off the same effect. The Southern Pol. Epoxy goes on smooth and lays flat with no wrinkle. That and the cost is just absurd. Since swithing, I have not gone back to DP or Omni. I also started using their Clear. Cost is nearly half of PPG and better quality IMO. It flows out extremely well and doesn't get cloudy between coats like the 3000 we were using. Most of the parts I clear, I don't even buff because it lays that well without imperfectons. Another thing I like is the epoxy and clear mix 1:1 which is so much simpler when you have other things on your mind on paint day. If anyone wants to compare costs, I can dig up my price sheet and list what I use.
