    Default Painting Extractor

    I have an extractor that need's the frame holder's painted, They are steel and are showing some rust. I have ordered Camcote paint from brushy mountain to paint it with.
    My question is some of the old paint is gone, should I paint it with regular paint then when it is dry cover it with the food grade paint. The camcote is clear and this would make it look a lot nicer. Thanks in advance.

    Totally agree on the sandblasting. It's relatively cheap. I know it'll depend on your locale...I've got a local guy that would do that for me for $10 or less. Well worth it to get rid of the old stuff and get a good coat that'll last.

    The epoxy is not cheap so I wonder why the manufacturers make the parts out of metals that will rust and corrode.

    This is an older machine, today theyare probably made with a rustproof materiial. Epoxy from Brushy Mountain is 8.50 per quart, I wouldn't call that high.

    It is listed at 13.50 now which is 54.00 per gallon. Looks pricey to me when compared to Urethanes or even stainless construction.

    Description
    A combination of epoxy resin and alkyd resin resulting in an air-drying coating. Epoxy esters provide a hard, durable film ideal as a machinery finish. Recommended for general atmospheric use in areas not considered severely corrosive.
    I remember someone claiming honey is very corrosive when they remarked about my extractor.

    Back in the day stainless wasnt used much. Now 90% of the manufacturers use stainless.

    Well if you are an OEM, Original Equipment Manufacturer, You pay a little more for the material but you gain in elimination of coating processes. Plus there is a perception of cleanliness when using stainless.
