What's the difference between steel and lacquered steel?
*Steel is a unfinished material and must be painted any color using an oil based paint.
*Lacquered steel is finished and ready to install.
'Unfinished' and needs to be painted in order to protect it?
*Need to be primed and painted both front and back if not it will corrode and oxidize with time.
For the unfinished tiles, can you use a spray lacquer on those vs. a paint on lacquer? Or does it have to be a painted oil based lacquer?
* If you just spay lacquer on steel (unfinished material) you take a chance of some scratches to be visual. Is recommended prime and paint or buy finished product.
