EFM Light Blue Paint Formulas for Stoker Units

Stoker Coal Boilers automatically feed the coal and have controls and pumps just like any conventions boiler. They are intended to be used as a primary heat and often have domestic hot water coils as an added bonus. They can be set up independently or in dual sytem with your existing oil/gas boiler. They can accommodate both hot water base board or steam plumbing.

These are the paint formulas for those who want to match or refurbish a stoker unit. The paints were created at Buss Paints, Emmaus, PA. 18049 and can be made in two sizes; a gallon and a quart. The paint is top quality, not cheap, but very durable. The original solvent-based paint was Silathane, but that was banned by the EPA.

Use Diamond Hard High gloss finish, Acrylic Enamel. Gloss neutral tint base #4 (8-1584) for both sizes.

For a quart, use this formula: B8, EY+42, KX40

For a gallon, use this formula: B32, E7Y24, KX3Y16

The paint can be thinned with water to the consistency of heavy cream for spraying. Note: This is the light blue color of the later years.
