Paint for inside lockers

I have read many posts about interior paint here and also debates about oil paints (hard to find nowadays) vs latex, but due to topics going sideways on tangents, I will need to re-post:

The question:

If you leave out the two-part epoxies and urethanes, based on your knowledge, which type of paint would be best/most appropriate for painting the fiberglass and wood inside lockers?

Criteria: Needs to be applied by brush and/or rollers, must be resistant to stains, chemicals, mould and moisture.

I think that would put Bilgekote from International on top of the list.

I agree, Bilgecote is great stuff - fast drying, wears well, waterproof, not fussy about prep.

Epoxy for primer then sanding, followed by polyurethane for fiberglass painting. (Proper ventilation is a must, prior to painting.) Mauritz

Aye to Bilgekote. Resistant to stains, washable, easy application, have used it on wood and fiberglass, and most importantly it doesn't chip or peel and wind up clogging pump strainers.

Re: Paint for inside lockers

Somehow Bilgekote escaped my search the past couple of weeks. Perhaps because International left us here in Canada high and dry so to speak, they are not as visible as they are in the US.

Dutch or not, so far Bilgekote is 4 X 0 - it will be hard to beat!

Thanks for the responses.

All the Dutch paints are hard to beat, it's one of the few products that the Dutch dominate the world market with (Koni shock absorbers is another one). For varnish, Epifanes is also very good. Even Awlgrip is Dutch owned.

I emigrated from Holland over 10 years ago but still use these products because others I tried were not as good. I even order Epifanes from the US to have it delivered here in Panama.
