Default Greetings from Southern Indiana

Hi There guys, I'm Jordan; I started painting in the Auto Body Repair industry when I was 16, I kept bugging them till they eventually gave in and let me try and I've been doing it ever since. I had been wanting to go into business for myself for years, but I never really did anything about it, till about 3 months ago I decided it was now or never, so I quit and now I'm attempting to make it on my own. So I figured I'd get on here and try to learn what I can from you guys, hopefully I don't irritate you guys too much with dumb questions haha.
I forgot to mention that I'm doing mostly industrial jobs now, not auto body

Thanks guys, it seems that this message board is geared mostly to painting buildings and stuff like that, I'm painting heavy equipment and things like that right now, is anybody else on here doing anything like that?

Welcome 1SlowSS!

I'm employed as an industrial maintenance painter. I don't know anything about running a business, but feel free to bounce some industrial coating ideas in here.

Have you used any poly siloxanes? I'd appreciate any feedback you can provide if you have.

Thanks,

John

Well that's cool, I know nothing about that kind of painting at all, if you saw my house you would agree with me haha. As far as the polysiloxane goes, I do believe I sprayed some waterborne primer that was polysiloxane, I didn't really pay it any special attention, I sprayed it on some parts for a boat the rudders were done in coal tar epoxy and some other misc parts were in some waterborne PPG stuff that was polysiloxane as I recall, that's about all the input I could really give you, I do seem to recall that I was having issues with it flashing too quickly but I believe that was due to the lack of humidity not the product itself

Thanks for the feed back.

I will be using the PPG PSX 700 as soon as it arrives from Timbucktoo. Need to discuss quicker availability of that product with my supplier..

Cool, what will you be painting with the PSX? The 1 account I have right now is painting for a mechanic shop that rebuilds heavy equipment from a rock quarry, so I get all kinds of random things, I'm going to go paint a couple of transmissions for an end dump after lunch. It's a pretty good setup because they furnish me a shop with a sandblast room, a massive spray booth, and a fork truck to move everything around, they have all the product there already so I just have to show up and paint. I just wish I stayed busier there

Nice arrangement!

I have some PSX 700 (Safety Yellow) in my paint storage that I've had for a year in preparation for a couple of exterior jib cranes I was planning on coating. However, the job was never scheduled and I'm stuck with several gallons of yellow. The recent order of PSX is for metal handrails and various piping for non ferrous and ferrous metls. These projects are a go.

I recently coated a stair structure and handrail with Devoe 379 polyurethane. I had to brush and roll it, and it was miserable the way it was setting up and dragging. It didn't even allow close to the pot life suggested in the TDS. I had so many hairs yanked off my weenie roller sleeve and imbedded into the coating on the hand rail, that when it dried, it was like rubbing your hand over non skid with nickle slag as a media aggregate.

Welcome to the forum Jordan, there used to be some industrial coating participants. Some industrial equipment, water towers and such. Do some creative searches and see what you come up with.

Search https://www.painttalk.com/members/painter213-2549/ and feel free to send a pm he is very professional and knowledgeable.

There are a couple other names I wish I could recall for you but they are probably older archived threads and posts but still good info.

Thanks for all the welcomes and helpful info guys; I haven't been on in a while, got side tracked but anyway, I snapped a few pictures the other day when I was there just to give an idea what kind of stuff I'm doing.
