Painting Steel Beam in semi protected exterior application
 
Hi All,
I need some help... I have an exterior steel beam that's up around ten feet high...20' long and 16" deep... it's holding up the second floor of a house it's been in place for 22 years and it was painted with red oxide primer and white Tremclad rust paint.... paint it's now flaking off.
Top and front of beam is completely protected with framing and siding. Back and ends are exposed to rain and snow. Location is Toronto. I've grinded the steel beam down to metal (there are patches of rust below that are now ground smooth to touch) what would you recommend for cleaner, primer and paint....and how many coats. Much appreciated Alex.
