By itself it's not but if you spray Lustrecote over it and then it is. Hope this helps.

You didn't say what your application is but just a thought on spray paint. I painted a whole 1/4 scale J3 Cub with Trimclad yellow rust paint. Goes on really nice, dries quickly and it is fuel proof. The best part is that it is usually less than 5 dollars a can! The only problem that I have found with this brand is that the colour selection is somewhat limited!

Just a thought and something else to consider!

Your paying to much I have been using a spray from Wally-mart called ColourPlace for about $3.95 a can. Bought about a dozen last fall after using it on the Spads.
The contents have Urethane and also I look for the type of thinner. If it has acetone and ketone it is usually fuel proof at least to 15%. If it calls for paint thinner with a petroleum base I would not use it. Hate cleaning the smears at the field or the hands.
