Spray paint is used on metal for a variety of purposes, including decorating a metalworking project, renewing the color on your car’s wheel wells, or even sealing your grill against rust, provided the spray paint is rated for very high temperatures. At Flowyline Design, our metal table legs are hand-crafted handmade created with modern aesthetics and design in mind and can match very well with various styles and materials of your own table and benchtop. Our standard finish is black matte powder coat, we also do the custom color silver and gold with both matte and polish.
With this in mind, it is important that you choose spray paint that is designed for use on metal. Otherwise, it won’t have the same adhesion and may simply chip or flake off.
Things you should know before painting on a metal surface.
First, you need to know the length of the area you need to spray paint. This will help you to purchase the cans that are required for the painting. For every 8 to 10 square feet, you need one spray can. By this, you can get an idea of how many cans are needed to spray the paint.
Plan your spray painting outdoors, and also it requires moderate climatic conditions. The humidity needs to be less than eighty percent, and the temperature needs to be above fifty degrees Fahrenheit. It will be best to choose a day that the winds are calm.
In this task, you are using spray paint. For this, you need to wear a mask or a respirator that will protect you from harmful chemicals present in the paint. Sometimes, it is necessary to apply a primer. It is a primary and fundamental step. Before applying the primer:
1. Take a brush and clean the surface to ensure any loose paint particles are shed off.
2. Once you have done this, clean the surface with a wet cloth to remove any dust particles.
3. Do this process until there are no signs of dust.
Let it dry before applying the primer.
