Are you guys around any real work?

Some AHJs will require any can with paint or texture contamination be replaced - no washing or scraping allowed. That means the can has to be completely sealed off at the ceiling.

Yeah, it's the painter's/drywaller's job - just looking for something that works and is quick. Thinking something resembling a flexible pot pie plate. I'm not really interested in replacing 50 cans after paint is done and looking for a product to pass along to drywaller

What is wrong with the little red ones that come with the cans?

Wow.. Guess I'm not doing my job. Never heard of that one. So what code section are you violating?

My guess is the interior of can isn't "listed" to be painted.
You get the cigar but I don't deal in tobacco products or other drugs either so I have no idea who gives you the cigar :)
pretty darn strict electical inspectors but that is correct, the luminaire was built without paint, it was tested without paint so it must be paintless in installation or it has been altered from its listing which voids the listing.

That's a pretty flimsy basis for enforcement. Surface mounted conduit, J-boxes and fittings are painted all the time. Your inspector needs to get a life.

Tell the inspector that those were custom ordered cans from the supply house.


That is how they looked when you bought them.
