Can I powder-coat my acroteria?

The solder used to fuse together the sides of our acroteria is ordinary, not silver solder and could therefore melt at the temperatures required for powder coating, causing the acroteria to spring apart. Consequently painting (by spraying, and following priming or undercoating as may be directed by the paint manufacturer) is recommended and this is most conveniently done on the ground, before installation.

Manufacturing processes may leave new acroteria with slightly oily surfaces which should be de-greased before painting.
