Was reading the threads re: cold galvanize paints etc, from K8DX AND KA1CLX.
At the same time I was flipping thru a West/E & B Marine catalog. Decided to
peruse the paint section and found a couple of products which may have some
potential for TowerTalk viewers.
The first is:
CRC Marine Instant Galvanize
"Renews and repairs galvanized surfaces. Offers the protection of expensive
hot dip galvanizing. Ready to use right out of the can."
16 oz. spray can CRC #06054 West #279646 $7.75
The second is:
Petit Marine Paints Trailercoat
"Seals and prevents rust on galvanized and stainless steel. Bright silver-
colored urethane coating forms a moisture-proof barrier against rust, and
seals existing corrosion to prevent its spread. It adhears tenaciously to
both galvanized steel and roughened stainless steel. It can be applied by
roller, brush or spray and can be left as is or overcoated with other
Coverage: 100-150 sq ft/qt. Dry time 1-2 hrs. Thinner: none required.
West #379594 $16.95/qt.
This is just for information, I have no ties with West/E&B. I just happen to
have their catalog for my boating stuff.
If I'm out of line with the above info, let me know. It wont happen again.
