Sherwin Williams has Tower-Guard specifically formulated for power
company transmission towers.  It is heavy with zinc chromate and goes on 
with one coat.  It is available from any S W dealer or store, but they
will have to order it--nobody stocks it.  It is available only in 5
gallon cans, and, as of last October, was list priced at $55 per gallon. 
I painted 50 feet of Rohn 25G with one gallon and had enough left to
paint another two sections, I estimate.  It is an alkyd enamel, and the
tote weight of the wet paint is 16 pounds per gallon.  The guys at the
paint store said it was the heaviest paint they had ever handled.  I
assume the zinc chromatic is responsible for that.  I have their catalog
page, but there is no mention of cat number.

Lost the original inquiry, so am posting to the reflector.
