The nonporous property of stainless steel means painters must improve paint adhesion by abrading stainless steel before applying paint. If not properly abraded, painted stainless steel will eventually start chipping and peeling. Due to its durability and hardness, steel must be abraded using special metal-etching primers that prepare surfaces for paint. After priming stainless steel appropriately, paint will adhere to steel. However, only certain types of paint work best when painting stainless steel.
Priming stainless steel reinforces its ability to bond to paint and also provides extenders that add weight and substance to a solution. Increasing the strength of the bond between paint and metal further helps boost paint’s durability and resistance to damage.
While primer does prepare stainless steel for a coating of paint, we take several initial steps to ensure steel is prepared as completely as possible for primer. For example, old paint or rust is thoroughly scraped off using a special tool meant to clean stainless steel. Any residue is then brushed off to provide a clean surface on which to apply primer. Knowing how to prepare stainless steel for priming is essential for guaranteeing our customer’s products maintain a flawless, durable finish.
Stainless steel would be vulnerable to corrosion if it wasn't properly primed before being painted. Primers used at Accufab effectively protect, seal and clean steel. Primers increase stainless steel's passivity, which strengthens its resistance to salt, humidity, extreme temperature fluctuations and other environmental stressors that cause corrosion.
