I have a set of metal drawers in the lab that are getting old. Ugly
dark, dull green. Looking to paing them black, but I have no idea what
will be durable and not flake off.
I haven't found 2-part black epoxy (though I wouldn't look forward to
dealing with it anyway). Anyone have experience with this?
Flaking off is bad prep. Leave any oil from your hands on the handle
areas and bond just wont be 100%. If paint there now is bad or soft
from years of touching the only stripping guarntees a great bond, but
is it worth stripping. Go to a real paint store that sells only paint
and do what they recomend
I've had good results using Preval sprayer with Rustoleum primer and
enamel (on old range hood). Not auto-body smooth, but very decent. I
didn't strip the old paint because I didn't want to harm new cabinets.
No rust, and old paint was gummy with metal showing through. I
degreased with denatured alcohol and fine sanded. Preval sprayers are
handy gadgets, small spray pattern. If there is rust, it should be
removed and primed right away, being sure to clean off any grease or
fingerprints. Preval sprayers require thinning the paint (read the
label) and get occ. spatter, but better than cans, IMO.
