A. You have to provide desired characteristics that you are looking for, e.g., are you specifically looking at insulating properties or corrosion resistance?

A. Transformers produce a lot of heat, maybe powder wouldn't be your best coating choice.

Q. Mainly we are looking for exterior durability( includes corrosion also ) , the paint applied on transformer.Epoxy zinc rich type of primers and aliphatic PU or what is being used presently.

Secondly, apart from spray painting any other method of application that can coat big sized these transformers.

Thirdly presently only air drying paints are being used or is there any trend of using stoving paints also.

Internally yes temperature is very important factor. in such cases what type of paint you can recommend.

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.
