“Is there a way to correct oil or grease stains without reworking the product. We presently attempt to use matched paint or resort to sanding and recoating finished product. Recoating tends to leave an orange peel effect.”


“These stains are indicative of residual oils left on the part prior to powder coating. Posssibly they are bleeding from hidden area, such as at spot-welded joints. In either case, the stained area will probably fail before the other areas of the part. Therefore, if you are looking for consistent quality from part-to-part and within the same part, then you must sand the area and recoat. However, if potential failure of the coating in this area isn’t a concern, then try cleaning it with a strong solvent and touch-up with liquid paint. Be aware that these areas will not be as good as the original powder coated surface.”
