Zinc paint

Has anyone used the Eastwood zinc paint? Will it work over SPI epoxied brake backing plates?
here is a link:
Eastwood Golden Cad System

Please delete this if it is not allowed on the site... Not trying to get in trouble with you!

Thanks,
jerry L.

I didn't read the Eastwood stuff but Zinc coatings are typically is designed to shoot over bare metal.

If your using SPI Epoxy already, I assume that your looking for color more than protection...if that's the case, the Zinc Paint will go over SPI Epoxy, as would most all paints. Just be sure to sand the Epoxy with 400 grit paper before if your past your 7 day window of recoatablility for adhesion before painting.

At $45.00 a can, perhaps check out other suppliers...seems a little pricey for a spray bomb.

All the best

Thanks!

Thanks!
I am looking for color, i might go with some gold paint as Im not doing a concourse resto and it's not going to be judged (execpt by purists picking it apart at shows). Someday...

the $45.00 is for the kit- gold, red and green. Goes up alittle more of the gloss top coat is ordered.

Ya never know, they might just stay black, i was just thinking about a little contrast on the suspension compared to everything being black.

Thanks for the input!

First to answer your question, yes it will stick to sanded epoxy or epoxy unsanded in open coat window.

I would use the zinc aero if I was painting over bare metal, as zinc is great for some things but zinc also has poor adhesion and that is why it is important not to over do zinc in formulations.

It seems Brian or DeadBodyman did demo test on here years ago to prove the poor adhesion, I don't remember.

Personally where this is being used I would be concern with brake cleaner being used down the road and stone chipping or having someone like me change your brakes with a pry bar and hammer. LOL
There are many manufacturers of this stuff, without the Zinc for more durability and half the price.
