A. For internal finishing on Power Transformers, I would recommend a good quality tank lining paint. Made by many companies, but designed for this function. Check ypur local directories for manufacturers near to you. Apply only when the ambient conditions comply with the stated requirements of the manufacturer, especially with regards ambient temperature and dewpoint.Peter Collett
