Painting home antennas.

The satellite dish is affected by many different factors, weather conditions. Rain, snow, frost, sometimes the icicles are falling, they are slowly doing their dark business and the antenna is worn out, the aesthetic appearance and quality of its work is significantly deteriorating.
Your satellite dish is rusty and the paint lags behind it with pieces - do not rush to buy a new one. In many cases, it is sufficiently cleaned, polished and dyed.
As it is known at the plant, the painting of satellite antennas is carried out with special powder paints. Negatively charged particles of powder paint adhere to the antenna and under the influence of high temperatures - melt and color the desired surface.
We do not need such complicated technologies to do it at home.

If the antenna is small in size.
We remove the rust. We grind it fine with fine sandpaper.
Degrease thinner for paint or acetone, gasoline, alcohol.
Apply the paint better with a small roller in two layers, avoiding streaks. The rear part of the mirror can also be a brush.
Matte paint will be better than glossy. In summer, the shine from the sun gathers in the beam and melts the converter cover or the multifid.
When painting large-diameter antennas, you need to work with power tools.

As I experimented on my 0.9 m antenna.

I think that the very good primer and paint, for painting boats and ships on iron, it's leaden lead.
I still have a little bit of powder left on my submarine .- = Surik lead ship =.
I tried this leaden lead in my car in 1981 before. The thresholds of the car and other parts for more than 10 years have not been rust.Then sold

Lead oxide is used to treat surfaces that are used in particularly difficult conditions. The variety of a protective substance based on lead is shipworm. This is the common name of this material. The ship's variety of marmot differs with particularly high thermal and anticorrosive properties. The paint SURIK Lead is a suspension of lead surrey and anti-corrosion fillers in a phenol-alkyd varnish with the addition of siccative and solvents.

Before use, the paint should be thoroughly mixed, if necessary diluted to a viscosity suitable for application, a solvent or a mixture of solvent with toluene, linseed oil, in a ratio of 1: 1.

Checked and on its antenna as a signal will be. First painted with a primer - Surik lead + diluted natural linseed =. The signal was fine, excellent was. Then dyed the brush in 2 layers with simple paint for the scuffwork, for metal. The signal was excellent.
