The paint in front of my dryer vent tray is starting to peel paint. Looks like
it got scratched some how. It's right when you open the dryer door, and it's
right in front of the vent tray on the white part of the dryer (Not the drum).
Any suggestions on NON-Flammable paint? I called rustoleum, and they said I
couldn't use their epoxy appliance paint because it's flammable around heat. I
need suggestions. Thanks
I think their paint is safe to use when fully dried. Wife uses it on
our microwave oven. The solvents in the paint are the main flammability
concern and you would not want to use a lot of it and immediately turn
on the drier. This is just common sense.
The person you spoke to is an idiot. Yes, it is flammable when you
apply it but I doubt you will apply it when the dryer is operating. The
specs on the paint say it is suitable for laundry equipment, but not for
oven interiors or stove tops. See this below.

We like how you think! Rust-Oleum Specialty Appliance Epoxy Spray is a
hard, moisture resistant enamel that is suitable for indoor metal
surfaces. It provides a smooth, washable surface for refinishing the
exterior of appliances such as refrigerators, dishwashers, laundry
machines, dryers and other indoor metal applications such as tables or

It's hotter inside the door, where this will be going, than in the

it will work fine too. Agree that whoever they talked to is an idiot,
even if it doesn't work, it's not a flamability issue.
There are also touch up paints made for appliances, that would work too.
It's not flammable at 200F after it is cured. I would use any epoxy
enamel made fur appliance touchup - let it cure well before using.
Engine paint isn't what you are looking for. Porc-a-fix touch-up glaze
is available at Home Depot in Canada - likely in the US too - $6.89
Home Despot in the US carries Rustoleum Gloss White Aplliance Touchup
for $3.36. It can be used to touch up your range which gets a lot
hotter than a clothes drier.
Rona carries Porc-A-Fix in the US as well as Dynamic Appliance
Touch-up enamel.$7.59 and $7.15 US.
