How to create enough heat to keep spray paint from chipping off?

I painted my dog's crate purple since I was desperate to upgrade her I used a free rusty crate, cleaned it, and painted and primer the crate. A few months later it looks like it is beginning to chip away. I have heart that, to prevent paint from chi

Answers:

You DON'T. In fact, TOO MUCH heat will cause the paint to fail.

NOPE AND NOPE
"I used a free rusty crate."
Did you GRIND OFF ALL THE RUST? If you did not do that, then it is the rust that is Lifting off. No paint is meant to hold it into position. Paint is not a GLUE. You did not prep properly. Don't blame the paint when you do not prep properly.
The paint you want is about $180.00US/quart. It is military paint. You can't scratch it with a nail. It is a specialty paint.
Not Tremclad or other rust paint.. Check at a fiberglass shop for a recoating paint.

What makes you think heat treatment is going to make the paint stick better?

Paint is solvents, fixatives and pigment. You can expect the pigments to be mostly stable, though under heat they may discolor. The solvents flash off as the paint is drying. But fixatives generally DON'T react well to getting hot. Heating the piece will probably loosen the paint, not make it stick better.

There's a reason why heat guns are used in furniture refurbishment projects when you need to strip paint.

You need to do more than just clean the crate. You need to remove all the rust. Rust, as they say, never sleeps. Once it's started it can be difficult to control. You need to remove all the rust you can, and then treat the surface with a rust fixing treatment that will chemically bind the rust you already have and curtail it migrating to new places or otherwise interfering with the paint adhesion. Paint adheres to rust just fine, but the rust doesn't adhere to anything else especially well, and it can easily flake off and there goes your paint bond.

I recommend you try POR-15 rust fixative. It will chemically stop the rust and go a long way to stopping any new from starting. You can come back with a topcoat (check POR-15's label for compatibility) in the color of your choice to get the look you want once the rustproofing is done.

Chipping or flaking indicates poor adhesion. You need to rub the whole thing down and then apply rustoleum or other household paint that is nontoxic to animals. Leave for two days at least to harden and for any chemical smell to dissipate.

Heating it is just a quick way of drying it.We use to do this where I worked. If you prepped it properly and used oil based paint like tremclad it shouldn't flake unless it's left outside for a few years
