Help !, I am desperately trying to locate a source for food grade paint to paint my galvanized extractor, and every paint store I have tried is unable to help. They can supply paint for "incidental food contact" but say its unsuitable for the extractor.
Any product names or sources for the paint anyone can help me with would sure be appreciated.
Desperate in Alberta
Try the Bee supply business.
See my response to your request in the bee forum.

Silathane Alkyd Semi-gloss Enamel, a product of Bruning Paint Co., Baltimore, MD is recommended for "primed galvanized metal". "Ideal for machinery, TANKS, equipment and vehicles under extreame weather conditions. Meets USDA criteria for use in federally inspected meat and poultry plants". Sales lit. says its approved for "food contact".
When I painted my hives, they dried to-touch in about 4 hrs, but required about a week to harden.
Good Luck, Dave W
