Surface Preparation

An appropriate surface preparation is essential to obtain an optimal adhesion and good protection. Each type of surface requires an appropriate preparation.
The surface must be free of all grease, oil, water, dust or other impurities that hamper a good adhesion. Old epoxy or polyurethane surfaces must be roughened up with sandpaper or by light blast sweeping. In order to avoid problems of interlayer adherence, it is recommended to apply the following coat within 3 days. If this isn’t possible, the previous coat has to be roughened up and cleaned before being painted. For aluminium surfaces: preparation by sanding with scotch brite.
