Re-painting Cast Aluminium House Sign

Postby Feelyjordan » Thu Apr 30, 2015 7:37 pm


Our cast aluminium house sign is looking a bit tired after 25 years. After taking it down I noticed that the paint has started to peel in places. I have used a wire brush to take it back to sound paint and bare metal but now want to re-paint it.

I have tried contacting local powder coating firms to have it sand blasted and recovered but had no response - presumably the job is too small for them.

The sign isn't very large - about 32 cm x 19 cm.

Is it possible to do this job myself and if so what preparation and type of paint would be required?
