Pre Primed Steel Doors - Latex ok

In reply to I shoulda used oil-based--now how do I remove latex? by Linda H. on October 23rd, 2000 12:11 PM [Go to top of thread]

My source for door painting (a rep for a major paint company) tells me that the pre primed steel doors come with a light oil on them to help prevent rust. This oil must be removed with paint thinner or mineral spirits prior to painting. If you failed to do this, it is probably the reason your latex finish is failing.
He indicates both the oil based paint or latex should give you excellent results.
