Re: Clear Coat for Secondaries ? ? ?

if... you can find it Behr 50 2 part is wonderful. Dries Clear,
stays clear.... but if bumped, dropped, handled in an abusive manner
,the covering "separates" from the wire leaving a whitish bruise (
after it has aged a couple of years, during the first year or 2 its
quite resilient).... basically an air gap between the wire and covering.
It is also prone to scratches if drug across sharp corners.
Only other choice I would recremend ( never could spell that
word) is a polyurethane floor finish but they have a tendancy to
turn either yellowish or golden.
One other thing I know of but havent tried is the 2 part "lexan" that
is used on table tops bar tops etc... very clear, mostly scratch
resistant, probably expensive and my be brittle like aged Behr 50....
guessing on this tho I have used it on a small table project and it
worked out just wonderfully.. I have no idea on its electrical
I wonder what the results of using a clear coat automotive
application would end up as.....?

Can someone recommend a good clear coat for secondary coils that looks
aestetically good. This will be used for a secondary coil wound on
clear acrylic tubing. The standard polyurethane is no good since it
dries yellow and flakes. Perhaps a two-part epoxy?
Any help appreciated!
