Ensolite repairs

Has anyone had any luck applying a skim coat or similar to the ensolite covering? I have some divots, cracks and very rough patches and was thinking a skim coat of some kind of flexible material could be used... rather than patching each issue individually... just thinking about ideas to make the surface look new again. Thanks

I used Alex plus latex caulk on my deteriorating ensolite. I squeezed it on from the caulking gun and used my rubber gloved finger to spread a thin layer over all the cracks. I also used it to fill any holes I had in the ensolite. I'm on holidays in Spain right now but I will be back in B.C. late next week.
