Is JD Blitz Black a acrylic enamel or?

I am going to try some JD Blitz black on the engine compartment of my 72 Ford F100. Can anyone tell me whether it is a acrylic enamel or an alkyd enamel and what the difference is between the two, good and bad.

It can be mixed in either. The stuff available at farm stores,commercial painters etc. is usually synthetic enamel (alkyd). It lacks some of the toughness of acrylic enamel and takes longer to dry. Synthetic enamel is good to use on parts that will see some road trash(little stones etc) as it never really hardens under the top crust and gives a little cushion to impact. It makes great frame and utility paint, it's easy on the pocket book. When used with hardner it takes on quite a few of the acrylic enamel traits.

Acrylic enamel is the real choice of the "shoot and drive" painter. It is tough and has good gloss. It has a specific re-coat time that must be observed or your new coats will raise and wrinkle the existing coat like you just sprayed paint remover on it.
