"Stainless Steel Preparation for Painting"



2000

We are going to be powder coating a stainless steel part which will be used on boats and subjected to saltwater and to fuel. We are going to use a zinc rich epoxy primer and a TGIC polyester topcoat, but I am unsure as to the best approach on preparing the stainless steel.Any help would be appreciated.

My Dear Melanie;

You want to do what to the stainless steel? It sounds almost sacrilegious to be powder coating stainless. If it's corrosion protection you are seeking I would recommend you consider electropolishing. You will suffer no problems with delamination and it will provide you with both an aesthetic and durable finish.

Sir:

We have had excellent results on S.S. for under ocean applications by blasting to a N.A.C.E. #1 -white metal blast and applying a single heavy coat (3 mils) of your top coat. If U.V. stability isn't essential, definitely use an epoxy pc.

Generally stainless steel only needs to be cleaned before painting. Specific treatments are not required but can be used.
