efm light blue paint formulas for stoker units

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.
