Wader Coil:ukflag:

After finding thousands of coins and about 500kg fishing weights the 8in coil on my Wader is starting to wear. just about anyother coil would have died years ago.
Does anyone know if I can get something I can paint onto the coil to give it a longer life, not to bothered about loosing a bit of depth.

JB Weld expoxy may do the trick

Try rhino bed liner in the spray can. That's what I use on all my coils.

I'd steer away from the JB Weld. The original formula uses steel particles as a strength component. Will hurt the signal! They may have some formulations that would be OK, but would need some research.

Marine epoxy is free of conductive material and has been used by many to coat the coil to protect from wear. If you search the Beach and Water / Scuba forum for all dates and the two words marine epoxy you will find a number of posts on successful use of marine epoxy for coating coils.

I think the word I am looking for is TORGINAL. It is a liquid jell. Turns to a hard rubber type of protection on floors. They even use it on the floors at roller skating rinks. That is all I know. My brother knows more than I do.... KEN fron Ind.
