Question: Help
does this paint withstand a freezing of up to -40% only I need to paint the inside of a chest freezer which is steel but can't have any smell as store ice cream in the freezer.
Thank you

We would recommend you overcoat Rust-Oleum Hard Hat 2117/1017 Galva Zinc Alu with Rust-Oleum Hard Hat 2500 Transparent Protection. The application would need to take place when the freezer was out of use and at ambient temperatures. Once the coatings dry they should be fine to operate at low temperatures in a freezer.
