Zinsser Allcoat sb for a garage door?

Post by Dingabell » Sun Mar 03, 2019 9:12 am

Hi all.
I'm repainting a metal garage door in white and was looking at using Zinsser Allcoat sb. Has anyone used this paint before and would you recommend it?
Not keen on using waterbased paint so if anyone knows of any other solvent based paints other than Allcoat that they'd consider using, please feel free to mention them.
Many thanks.

Just read a bit of a dodgy review of the solvent based Allcoat saying it dries too quickly so you can't brush it out fast enough. Has anyone used the water based one to good effect?

Allcoat is a great paint for facia's, windows etc. Haven't used it on metal surface and don't know how it would stand up on a steel garage door.
If you want to go solvent based, a good one is Alkythane 7500
