I dropped a coil with the Behr build 50 and it cracked.
I used a boat epoxy last time and it turned out real nice on an 8" coil.
Dropped it and it has seen cold. Looks beautiful. Wish I could remember the
name now. Went on a cleaning spree and threw the cans out. Got it at a boat
I wound about a dozen coils, all exactly the same and coated them with all
the different things people use here and the epoxy seemed to do the best. If
you blow on the bubbles as they form, they disappear real quick. Someone
once mentioned that it is CO2 that helps this.
Don't ever use an acrylic coating. It is absolutely crystal clear. I tried
the stuff used for encapsulating objects, like insects and the such. As a
cube, it seems indestructible, on a coil however, if you drop it, it
shatters like glass.

I once coated a coil with a really thick layer. The coil was copper wire
on an acrylic form. The behr 50 broke all up during a cold snap in the
garage. It was probably around 0 F in the garage, so I suggest you keep
your coil in the house during the winter.
