Surplus Paint.  We got a bunch of surplus indoor/outdoor, latex paint from a multi project job.  Best of all...the paint is white!   Email for MSDS and Details>> **TRUCKLOAD PRICING AVAILABLE

repurposedSUGGESTION:  "Your surplus white paint can be mixed 50/50 with water and used in striping machines for painting lines on football and soccer fields.  Lasts about a week when the grass is growing.  Also can be used in striping a baseball field.  Much better than pouring on chalk/lime as the paint doesn’t accumulate – doesn’t make “speed bumps” that take a great effort to remove the lime, etc.  Using this paint mixture does require a specialized paint machine, either purchased or home/custom made!!  PS:  Always use a paint filtering sock so you don’t plug the nozzle . . . and walk straight!!" - Gene Howe
Most Wanted:  Does your firm generate a lot of ingredient floor sweepings or reject product b/c of size sugar, salt, or whatever...that end up in the dumpster?  If yes, we might be able to help!  Contact Us>>
