Epoxy Enamel Paint. Anyone use it?

Postby KHELSTROM » 20 Oct 2008, 19:50

Just wondering if anyone has finished a box using any of the epoxy enamel spray paints available? If so what is your opinion, is it any better/ more durable?

I've wanted to try that stuff, but I want a color other than white or black, so I haven't gotten around to messing with it. It seems like it would be great, but I guess you never really know until you try it.

I think I'll give it a try this weekend. I wonder if anyone is using it as a "protective coating" on their PCB? :lol:

To protect the pcb against what :hmmm: ? Circuit tracers?

Yes but only in vain. I guess it would be like a "security blanket" for them.

I think the only effective "security blanket" would be a Titanium shell in the center of a block of Lead that's plated in Gold.
I wouldn't waste my time trying to get into THAT! :lol:


Actually, I think just sanding the names off the chips and transistors is enough to keep the average person from being able to totally know for sure what the exact circuit is; and we know what a difference the right chip can make to the sound. And it still allows techs to be able to repair it because 90% of the time it isn't going to be a chip or transistor that dies.
