Black Stainless Steel Appliance Epoxy After

Give your refrigerator a new look with Specialty Appliance Epoxy. Apply the epoxy for a durable, long-lasting, washable finish that resists finger prints. Ideal for indoor or outdoor conditions, this epoxy spray paint provides a quick DIY makeover to any appliance. 

Step 1: Over a drop cloth, clean the surface of the fridge with a mild detergent or soap and water, rinse and let dry. Remove loose paint and rust with a wire brush or sandpaper. Lightly sand glossy surfaces. Remove dust and debris with a vacuum or clean, lint-free rag. 

Step 2: Shake the can of spray paint for 1 minute after the mixing ball begins to rattle.

Step 3: Apply light, even coats to ensure even flow and finish. For a glossy finish, top coat with a Rust-Oleum Stops Rust® Crystal Clear Spray after the paint is fully dry. 

Step 4: Allow the paint to dry to the touch in 2-4 hours and to handle in 5-9 hours. A second coat may be applied within 30 minutes or after 48 hours.
