Default Question

Got awarded to paint the showroom and shop of a Toyota dealership.
Question is:
There are some walls with grease (for example the oil change bays)
Pressure washing they don't allow, maybe because it is done during their operation.
Spray garden pumps I guess and brushing.
Anyone has similar experiences?
What to use for degreasing, any suggestions?
Any product to use on walls (painted block) for better wear?
Quoted for semi-gloss alkyd. I am waiting to see what their corporate
colour specs are

Simple green for degreasing.

I use Challenger for all our degreasing needs during kitchen repaints and I know some contractors use it for oil on floors before epoxy coatings are laid down.

For better dry time than alkyd, maybe a 1 part epoxy paint, I know a fair amount of commercial projects are spec'd for this in bathrooms and I think some schools.

Thanks Scott,
it looks good

It needs to be rinsed well I suppose.
This is not our specialty but it is a good and seemingly easy job.

I thought BM had 1 component epoxy, but all theirs are 2-part. I was thinking of an acrylic-epoxy type product. If you need to catalyze, might not be worth the hassle depending on pot life.

Absolutely. I go back n forth between Simple Green for certain things too. Krud Kutter works amazing on kitchen repaints.

I have used this too, and it works well and is cheap. It goes a long way.

The Acrylics have a pot life around 8 hours. Easy enough to handle

Just a note: Be careful breathing in the acrylic epoxies, I was told that they are worse than the oils...

Why looking for products for George, I did see that one component epoxies were banned in some states, probably for reasons Harry mentioned above.
