I'm working on a quote for painting a couple thousand feet of aluminum railing. Going to look today if it's been painted before or not. I want to use Duron's DTM acrylic is this a good paint for the job and what type of coverage can I expect painting rails? Thanks all

Well thats a first
I looked for anything aluminum, kinda knew there wasn't what he was looking for. Thought maybe the address i posted could have helped in some way or another.:(
:eek: Did a goggle search on this topic and found this guys response.

Surface preparation is most important and you do have some options. However, the extent to which you invest in surface prepping depends on the number of parts you intend to coat on a daily basis, size and configuration of the parts, whether you will do the surface prep or if you will contract it out, and several other issues.
I'll be more than happy to spend time with you on the phone giving you various options and pointing out the pro's and con's of each. If you want to pursue this then I will also go into equipment needs, oven etc.
Once you have properly prepped the aluminum an epoxy primer will do just fine, and there is a wide range of products that you can use.
Unfortunately I can only spend a few minutes on each Q&A as I perform this service for on a gratis basis. Since it will take more time to give you the information you require, I invite you to retain my services for approximately 1 hour by phone so that we can cover all of the important issues. My fee is $200 per hour and payment can be made by credit card.

Yeah I did that same and thats all I could find was that ask the expert site. Although iPaint, if your job is not painted he does say to use an epoxy primer, so maybe keep that in mind if thats the case.
or, you could spend $200.00 for one hours time on the phone with this guy.
