Item Information

Majic Town & Country Aluminum Paint is a ready-mixed, ready-to-use aluminum paint formulated with the finest grade leafing aluminum pigments, long wearing oils and synthetic resins.

  • Oil Based
  • Application: Use it on interior or exterior metal, wood, or masonry surfaces. Recommended for radiators, boilers, smoke stacks, and other surfaces where a heat-resistant coating is necessary. This coating derives its brilliance from a surface leafing pigment and therefore should not be used on any surface subject to abrasion or constant rubbing.

Can it be "sprayed" on, and if so. With what is it thinned with?

Asked by: sideslip
Majic T&C Aluminum paint may be brush, rolled or sprayed – but spraying usually offers the brightest and most continual looking film. Normally we do not recommend thinning (reduction) for spray application, for a couple of reasons…(1) As is with many oil/alkyd coatings, these products are delivered as VOC compliant, but often at the maximum level of allowable VOC’s. To reduce this product with conventional solvents will knock the product out of compliancy – and (2) Majic T&C Aluminum Paint is a delicate balance of oils, alkyd resin, aluminum paste and allowable solvents, and is already delivered at spray consistency – reduction, even with “exempt” solvents will often times affect the paste’s ability to leaf properly, creating a film that is still functionally protective, but not as brilliant, or as “silver”, as intended. One unfortunate trait of aluminum paints is the settling that occurs with any length of storage, or inactivity. This is common, and not an indication of “old stock” or a defective product – Any settlement needs to be stirred back into suspension with a flat paddle, or drill mixer (do NOT shake leafing aluminum products). It is recommended that the product be stirred periodically, even during application, to keep all components in proper suspension. Reduction of Aluminum Paint will actually hasten the settling of the large, and heavier, aluminum flake. For spray application, via airless pump, generally requires approximately 1500 pounds of pressure, and an .015 orifice reversible spray tip (typically recommended as a .415 tip for an 8” spray fan, or a .515 tip for a 10” spray fan) To spray aluminum at higher pressure, or a smaller orifice, may also affect the pigments ability to leaf properly. Conventional spray (Air compressor) would require approximately 25 psi, with a 1.4 – 1.6 mm needle. The recommended applied film thickness = 2.4 mils wet (very thin application) to yield 1.0 dry film thickness (which equals the theoretical spread rate of > 600 square feet per gallon).

can you paint over this with a colored paint

Asked by: jonLan
In most cases – conventional, opaque coatings may be applied over Majic Aluminum Paint following proper, and necessary, surface preparation (surface must be clean, dry and free of all dirt, dust and other surface contaminants that may inhibit the adhesion of new paint). Proper surface preparation should include removing any chalk, or oxidation, by scrubbing surface with a low-sudsing, phosphate-free detergent & water solution – especially if coating over with an exterior latex paint. Other than that particular caveat, just make sure the surface is clean – In most cases, coating over aluminum will require 2 coats.

Can a clear coat be used to increase durability of the finish?

Asked by: Ray H
We wouldn't recommend it...not with Majic Clear Coat at least. The solvents found in Majic Clear Coat would soften the resin found in Clear Coat, and the result would adversely affect both the appearance and the performance of the Aluminum Paint.

Can this be used to paint a metal roof?

Asked by: janokie
Majic T&C Aluminum Paint, #8-0020, is a great recommendation for metal roofs. If the roof has ever been painted before, make sure it is clean and free of all loose, or peeling paint, and free of dust, dirt, chalk, oils, tree sap, or other surface contaminants that may inhibit the adhesion of a newly applied product.

Can this paint be used on propane tanks

Asked by: Jjw492692000
Majic Aluminum Paint is a quick leafing, bright aluminum paint that provides long lasting protection from the elements and has excellent corrosion resistance. From that perspective, Majic Aluminum Paint will work fine on tanks - As stated on the label, though - "This coating derives its brilliance from a surface leafing pigment. Therefore it should not be used on any surface subject to abrasion or constant rubbing...." - Abrasion from tree, or shrubbery branches, or excessive handling or rubbing, will cause the aluminum finish to diminish in brilliance to a dull gray appearance (but will still provide utility protection)

how long do you have to recoat when sprayed

Asked by: keyo
Majic T&C Aluminum Paint is a quick-leafing, heat-resistant, oil/alkyd aluminum formulation designed for interior, or exterior, metal, radiators, smoke stacks, boilers, grain bins, metal roofs, etc, and provides excellent corrosion resistance and protection to those painted surfaces – When applied according to package directions, Majic T&C Aluminum Paint will “dry-to-touch” in between 5 & 10 hours, the re-coat time remains at 24 hours. As is with any oil/alkyd formulation, re-coating too soon often results in a film that won’t dry “hard” for several days (or longer), then may not provide the level of protection expected.
