Preparation

Proper surface preparation is required

  • All surfaces must be clean, dry, free of rust, dust, dirt, chalk, oil, grease, wax, polish, mold and mildew stains, loose and peeling paint and all other foreign substances.
  • Mildew: Remove mildew stains with a mildew stain removing product.
  • UNPAINTED METAL SURFACES: Ferrous Metals: Use SSPC-SP2. Remove all rust and mill scale using sandpaper, steel wool, abrasive blasting, or other abrading methods to create a profile on the metal’s surface.
  • Remove any residue, and clean the metal by scrubbing the surface with a solvent such as mineral spirits or acetone. Bare metal must be coated the same day it is cleaned.
  • Galvanized Metal, Aluminum & Other Non Ferrous Metals: Use SSPC-SP1. All oil film on new metal must be removed before it is painted.
  • Remove oil film with a solvent such as mineral spirits or acetone and remove any residue.
