Default Medical cabinets

Got an odd call today to refinish some medical cabinets and book cases. Metal, don't have any real details as of yet other than what they are.

Called the SW rep and he said oil.. Okay but what type we talking here? DTM or some type of acrylic.. or an epoxy? He really didn't have any real solid answers for me. He said, of course, it depends on what they are wanting to do with them. I had already told him they will be using for storing product on, as in bagged items, no chemicals just some supplies they sale on a medical supply website.

Anyone have the foggiest on what to use?

Depends on the current coating. If solvent based, I would probably to an oil DTM if waterborne, then an acrylic DTM.

Call an industrial paint store - they'll probably know what would work best for metal cabs/shelving.

I've never done them myself so I have no idea - but my first call would be to an industrial paint supplier.

Was what I was thinking, or along those lines.. and if it is rusted any then using some ChemChromic or the like to reverse the rust. I am getting pics and dimensions tomorrow. Will update the thread then.

Thought SW would know, but I didn't talk to an industrial rep. I have all the tools (compressor, D/A sanders, HVLP's) for metal work on site. I think it would be a cool little project.

Why is this in the zone? I think we have several reps in the open part that would be glad to help.

Kem Kromik is great for rusting metal.....but it must dry for at least 16 hours before applying topcoat. if smell is not an issue, macropoxy 646 is some pretty nasty, tough sh!t!

I just use an airless these days I have a graco 3800 or 4800 hvlp that I have not used in a couple years. If I were using an hvlp I would want to have a pot tank for it otherwise you know how it is spraying the undersides.
