Recommend to use two component system: Epoxy Mastic – Surface Tolerant Primer (May contain Aluminum Pigment), and Aliphatic Polyurethane topcoat.

All surface cleaning, preparation, application, inspection and documentation to be performed to SSPC-SP 5 (NACE No. 1), NACE SP0178, or SSPC-SP COM.

Hand or power tool cleaning shall be per SSPC-SP 2, SSPC-SP 3, and SSPC-SP 11.

I would also recommend the presence of a NACE CIP Level III coating inspector to monitor all phases of the job.
