They use an acrylic, similar I suppose
Its confirmed not to be acrylic, but they won't say what they use on the color 8 shell. Having handled both Alden shell and Maryam TPR, I wouldn't say they're that similar either.

When did Alden say it wasn’t an acrylic?

Klein Brett did over in the Alden SF thread, but he wouldn't disclose what exactly it is.

Edit: AoM or Ealdwine first made the claim that it wasn't then he was asked and confirmed it isn't.

Odd since Mike of Alden of San Diego says it’s an acrylic coating.
That is partially speculative to be honest. I haven’t actually confirmed that information with Alden. They protect their information pretty closely in general. But there have been some projects where people have stripped off the old finish using Reno Mat and re-applied a finish with off-the-shelf acrylic and gotten a similar look and feel.

Cheers,
Mike
