Over this side of the pond, ProXL do a similar product, a urethane acrylic. I've used it on a respray, and it's remarkably tough for an unstoved 2K clearcoat. But it's still not clear pure polyurethane tough, so be aware of that.
Second, can you guys get Respro masks readily over there? Their chemical filter pack for things like what they used to market as the Aero and now is sold for sensitive allergy uses works - the filter is activated charcoal and replaceable - picks isocyanates out of the air, although you'll still get he tiniest whiff of the lighter solvent molecules a touch.

Cheap almost never equals good when it come to paint products....I can get a very nice powdercoat done for what paint costs in materials alone.
The day I see a powdercoat that's 40% basic zinc phosphate or aluminium tripolyphosphate in the dry film, then I'll let someone put one on my bike. I'll got wet spray 'til then.
