Default New metal building color change.

Just curious to what prep and product is reccomended, it's a new Morton building all the paint is intact they just want a brighter color? Also bare metal on the roof thinking either a sw uniflex coating or a dtm primer and a coat of duration?

If it has a factory finish I would be very careful. I have seen finishes fail. Even with XIM primer. In fact I drive by one that they change the metal roof color and is peeling badly.

The problem is the factory finish has a Teflon coating on it. Try to find a bonding primer that is recommended for this product.

One coat of SW Bond-Plex or DTM Bonding Primer on the prefinished metal, then topcoat with DTM (okay), Sher-Cryl (better), or Acrolon 100 WB (best). I wouldn't use Duration on metal buildings, especially the roof, when there are coatings designed specifically for metal for comparable or cheaper prices.

This is just a cross-fill of SW DTM Bonding Primer. The PDS and MSDS are identical, and P&L is SW-owned.

I have used the above mentioned primer followed by a couple coats of PPG Pitt tech DTM with good results. SW has the same products that should work fine.

I'm going to be doing a metal bldg. re-paint in about 10 days . It is probably 30 years old and I'm adding emulsa-bond to Resiliance. I would use DTM but the temperature gradient is not in my favor.

Another thing that consumers aren't told. It is extremely difficult to paint over new coil coated metal. Even after it is aged, there is much more prep needed to get reliable adhesion then most people realize.

Default New metal building color change.

We just opened a brand new PPG Paints store in Texarkana. It was an existing factory baked enamel metal siding building. We could've used anything in the PPG offering. We went with Pitt Tech bonding primer/finish and two coats Pitt Tech DTM satin.

You can't chisel it off. It's only a year old but looks brand new, even the west side

I sold quite a bit of this system when i worked for PPG. It seems to have worked well.
