Started to do a search on the web and then thought it may be easier to just post this question on a forum with some professionals.

Have had an ongoing problem in our shop when painting heavy equipment...or any equipment for that matter. We lift the equipment with a crane and put a coat of paint on it. We then need to set it down prior to it drying because the crane is required for other processes. We set the equipment down so that it sets on rubber in three or four areas.

Is there anything that we can put between the rubber and the equipment so that touch up of these areas is not required?


Thanks for any input.

The first question is... What kind of paint are you talking about... What kind of process? What kind of equipment? What kind of prep?

There are alot of variables to consider. If I were going to just take a wild stab in the dark... I would suggest:

You can buy it in 1/4" 4x8 sheets...

Idont know about heavy crane items, but wax paper helps on my smalleritems. maybe something like cone shapped pieces of steel precisely placed to support the painted item on the cone tips so touch up is minimal? Of course the cone base would be attached to a large base. (If this works I want a cut)
