How well does C P X T R A compare to Permagloss and is one better then the other if used for a hard protection.

No contest - Permagloss is a moisture curing urethane. It is harder, brighter, clearer, more durable and more flexible than any water based product or epoxy. Never yellows, never cracks. No contest. Not even close on any count.

Glenn, both are moisture curing urethanes, Both get hard as a rock. C P X goes off more slowly and gives a less glossy finish.
