Looking for some inspiration on what paint to put on a new cattle crate. Google imaging stuff pulls up some pretty ordinary stuff - thinking base of what with blue stripes, nothing over the top but not too bland either. Are there any makers websites with good colour schemes? Not using alloy it's all painted...

Whilst not cheap I'd use Por15.

Once set it is pretty bomb (and most likely pee) proof.

Aggenamel is a Wattyl industrial epoxy paint. Reckoned to be heaps better than Killrust & etc and just one step down from 2pak in terms of durability. Interestingly there is a significant price difference across the colour range which reflects that price relates to pigments used rather than a retail paint which has them averaged out and plus a bit.
Used to be colour schemes on crates when they were wood but nowadays it is all solid colour - red or green from the bigger outfits and white with the occasional blue from local makers. Since lead was banned you can't get a decent Yellow paint not sure how Cat gets round it.

Showing my ignorance I know, but how does banning lead, which is grey in its solid form, stop you making yellow paint? Or is it something like how does a black cow, whose meat is red, eating green grass, and sh*ting brown, make white milk? Just asking. :unsure: :unsure:

IIRC, lead IV oxide is yellow, decomposes to lead II oxide, which is red. A spraypainter showed me the red haze of chalky paint on a yellow car at his panelworks when I was doing up my first car.

A lightish shade of red perhaps?
