Default Lexan Paint & Polycarbonate Paint???

Are these the same paint? If not, what is the difference.

I am painting a clear lexan body for a nitro r/c. Which one is fuel or oil resistant.

i had the same prob. when i went to the hobby shop there were two types of spray paint one for plastic moulds and the other for polycarbonate. I was still in doubt until i read on the instructions that polycarbonate and lexan are the same. Polycarbonate paint is also marked with the letters PS.

Lexan is indeed polycarbonate. As far as fuel/oil resistance...not sure. I think it is largely manufacturer dependent. I think I remember reading somewhere that Tamiya paints are NOT resistant.
