There are single part polyurethane paints and two part polyurethane, and Awlgrip has a two part Polyester Urethane paint.  The differences are generally the hardness of the paint.  Two part paints are harder than single part paints which provide a longer life of gloss retention.  Typically the two part paints have the best distinction of image meaning the gloss is high enough to be very reflective like a mirror when you look into it.  Single part paints are usually more forgiving and easier to use.
