Coatings for corroded lamp posts

What can we use to coat corroded lamp posts ?



If sandblasting cannot be used to clean the lamp posts. the only solution would be to remove the remaining paint by hand or, possibly, by some mechanical means. Various film—forming substances can be used, two or three coats being applied. The final coating should be between 140 and 290 micron thick.

Suitable

binders

include specially

modified alkyd resins

, vinyl chloride copolymers as well as epoxy and, perhaps, acrylic resins. When applying the primer it is specically important to ensure perfect penetration into the substrate, possibly by formulating it so that it has a low viscosity. This will ensure good adhesion of the

paint film maximum protection against corrosion
