    KILTZING

    I heard this term yesterday for the very first time and, although I don't know everything, I have been in the HVAC industry since the early 1980s.

    Supposedly, it's a process to prepare paint grip spiral pipe for painting. Has anyone heard this term before? What does it involve?

    Thanks

    Do you mean Kilz, like the primer?

    Ive never painted any ductwork but my understanding is that they etch it with a mild acid. Someone told me they use vinegar?

    someone had rocks in their mouth, never heard that either. but basically what ever cleans the oils off the pipe before painting is a good thing, call it what ever you want.

    Hmm...tartan ductwork?...sounds a little weird to me.

    It could have been kilz, I guess. I didn't see it written, only talked about, so my spelling was probably wrong.

    Thanks
