Re: Toroid size on Big Coils

I can't really comment on epoxy as I have never used
anything but polyurethane on my secondary coatings.
IMHO though, I don't think even the thickest of coat-
ings can properly protect the secondary surface from direct hits, especially with big coils. I would think com-
plete oil submersion under several atmospheres of pres-
sure or SF6 would be about the only thing that could
effectively protect the secondary coil surface from di-
rect streamer hits, but that's just my opinion ;^)

i have not enough data and still hesitate in choosing coatings for
secondary - poly or epoxy?
tell me guys - can epoxy prevent or at least attenuate such damage, or
all that it can is just make things even worse, especially repairing of
blasted area, coz you can`t scrape it away so easily as poly?
Let the bass kick! =:-D
