orange motor paint
« on: December 19, 2010, 06:57:53 PM »
Was preparing a D & R order and noticed that they had orange engine enamel paint in SPRUCE Seymour 98-48. Does anybody know if this is the same as Seymour EN-48?

With different numbers one would conclude it is different but you may want to call D&R and ask. Did you check the Seymour website for possible information?

Going by Seymours web, it should be the same color, but lower temp rating [250f v 300f] and even higher gloss.
EN-48 would still be preferable on these two counts.

Durability is also less - good v excellent.
