Corrosive Paint for Battery Compartment

Anybody out there have a name and or supplier for the specific acid resistant paint used for battery compartments? Is this the same paint that auto suppliers have that is used for undercarriage of autos?
Need to prevent further corrosion from our batteries.

Battery Box Paint

Thanks so much for your reply. We'll google it and try and find it here in Las Vegas. I previously tried other suggestions at Auto Stores and they looked at me with this bewildered look . . . . thanks for your time! Bonni

Here is a post that you might find interesting.

This comes under the topic of "sometimes it works and sometimes it doesn't". An once or two of mineral oil in flooded batteries does help reduce the out gassing and corrosion in the battery tray. One can debate this, but when I had flooded batteries it did work. If you do a search of iRV2 using "mineral oil" you'll see many discussions on this topic.

When I re-did my battery compartment I used a spray paint from the Eastwood Co.( Google it). They have a LOT of paints, rust converters etc. used by auto restorers. So far, its holding up well.

Alother thing I now do is to set my charge rate on the inverter controller to 30% and that seems to eliminate the gassing, while keeping the batts charged.
