Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by MacEwen Great paint, but takes a bit more care in application
I originally started using this paint on metal portions of older computer equipment. I'm not sure if I even painted a refrigerator with it yet! I use in on painted metal pieces that I know may see some abuse. I recently repainted steel metal legs for a heavy duty workbench, and an indor ceiling fan. No primer was needed. I use brake cleaner spray, as a final degreaser, before painting. (I also use brake cleaner spray to clean out the spray tips between uses).
I apply this paint the way I always spray from a can. Do a nice dusting coating first. DO NOT go for full coverage or color right away. Dust everything, let it flash a bit.. Once you dust it all, start going back over in medium coats, building it up. Then move in closer and finish piece with a solid coat (nozzle closer). This dusting, first, gives much better results, than going at it full bore. It reduces chances of running, and allows paint to grab onto edges.
As instructions state, let cure for a week, before the next coat. Plan you painting well, and you need only do it once.
If you need a smooth gloss finish, this paint will buff, even by hand. I highly recommend it, as a durable paint, with a nice finish. Follow some tips, and you'll be golden. And yes, as other reviewers have stated, the overspray is very tacky! protect surroundings, and your lungs. There is a lingering dry time, and I would wait 12-24 hours to handle the stuff. It's worth the wait! Apply very easy, at first, then ramp it up.

This product was very easy to use. We moved our old bisque & white refrigerator into the garage. Prior to purchasing the spray paint, I used a magic eraser on everything. You will want to clean your appliance with a degreaser, otherwise the paint will be splotchy in those areas (this happened in a small area, but I just touched it up with a black permanent marker).
I removed both doors and taped off the inside with packing paper and painter tape. I laid the doors down and taped off the plastic gaskets/sides. Then I started spraying the side. The spray paint is much more runny then regular paint, so you will need to be very careful. I had a few areas that ran, but since I used black, it is not very obvious. Once the side was done, I did the other side. Then I did the front and then the top and some of the back. Then I did the doors, which I had laying down. This was much easier. I also sprayed the "wood" refrigerator handle.
There is a ton of overspray, you will DEFINITELY need to be wearing a mask!!! I wore a respirator and glasses, and after I was done with it all, I could feel that there was spray paint in my hair - this stuff really floats around. I am glad I was wearing older shoes because they also turned black. I guess my point is to wear old clothes and please cover your eyes and mouth, as this is not like normal spray paint.
I let everything dry for 24 hours, reassembled everything, and now I have a nice "new" shiny black refrigerator. The textured doors accepted the paint well and I definitely recommend this product.

Need to read application and drying times and follow very carefully. The result of recoating too soon is a very nice but wrinkled finish.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by convvette Great coverage easy to apply
This epoxy paint is easy to spray and covers well. 2 tack coats at least 5 minutes apart. final wet coat after 10 minutes. Performs best on low humidity day. After scuffing primer and using an automotive paint prep degreaser I preheat parts with a heat gun to remove laden moisture. after each coat I apply more heat to maintain a "warm" temp to painted item. A few minutes after the final coat I place in a small oven I have in my shop (when object will fit) just for "Baking the Paint" at 140 or 150 degrees F. I do the same with enamel rattle can paint. The heat speeds cure time but mostly gives the finish durability and an excellent finish. I paint and re-coat numerous items within and around my household. I also restore vintage electric fans.

This is a great paint. I have used it on refrigerators, screen doors, auto parts, and wood picture frames. It takes a little extra long to dry compared to other spray paints - recommend over night, but the finish lasts and it flows out nicely.
