White coating for stainless steel
I am looking for a white coating for stainless steel that will last as long as the stainless steel. It is for the identification numbers that are painted on the sides of skips used for the transport of nuclear fuel between power stations and reprocessing plants. The water specification ia approx. as follows: Boron present as boric acid
2000ppm Boron < 0.5 ppm pH is 7 to 11.4, which is achieved by addition of sodium hydroxide. the existing painted system has degraded. One suggestion is the use of titanium dioxide (white?) coating applied to cutout stainless steel numerals as a possible solution.
