How to Stick to metal

spray In the residential repaint market we often see chipped paint on metal surfaces such as metal door hinges, cabinet hardware etc. If it’s not chipped paint its rust spots coming through the paint. A simple fix is a can of bonding primer sprayed to the metal then finished with your choice of acrylic paint.

A common problem in the new home market is peeling paint from bi-fold door hinges. Often contractors will paint doors with an airless sprayer and go directly over the hinge with latex paint which comes off easily. The paint often chips away the moment the doors are re-hung. A quick light coat of a bonding primer will keep the paint on the hinge.
