Glyptal 1209 Black Enamel
Categories: Polymer; Thermoset; Alkyd

Material Notes: GLYPTAL 1209 BLACK ENAMEL is an air drying or baking gloss interior enamel designed for its resistance properties as well as being a protective and decorating coating for electrical equipment. It is similar to GLYPTAL 1201 RED and will give very good oil resistance and good salt spray resistance as well as excellent non-tracking and arc resistance.

Suggested Uses: GLYPTAL 1209 is suggested for the finishing of electrical equipment for interior exposure. It is similar to 1201 in properties other than dielectric strength and may be used for coating small motor stators, field coils, end windings, bus bars, and switch bases. It is also suggested for the protection of surfaces from arcing.

Application: GLYPTAL 1209 may be applied by spray or dip methods. Surfaces to be painted should be clean and dry. Reduction: 1209 should be thinned to 23 to 28 seconds (#2 Zahn Cup) with 1500 thinner.

Surface Preparation: Surfaces to be painted should be dry and free from dirt, wax, grease, rust, and oil. Remove grease and oil by washing surface with mineral spirits. When painting over a previously glossed surface, reduce gloss by use of sandpaper or steel wool.
