What kind of paint should I use for the inside of my chest freezer?

Rust, extreme cold, moisture, and proximity to food are all considerations. I'm scraping and sanding out the rust previously there and I was wondering what kind of paint to use.

The surface would have to be clean with no rust, oils or moisture when the paint is applied.

You didn't mention color but I assume you would like white paint.

There is a 12 oz spray can out of division 26 source 110 part number 350930.

There is also for larger jobs a quart can of Acrylic paint out of division 46 source 106 part number 799344.

The paint can be obtained from the following site:

Sears PartsDirect


How well the paint holds up to the cold and moisture will depend on how clean and dry the surface is when the paint is applied.

I hope this information is helpful to you.
