Preparing the Surface & Job Site

Improperly prepared surfaces can greatly reduce coating integrity and service life. A majority of all coatings failures can be directly attributed to poor surface preparation, which affects coating adhesion.

cleaning and preparation

To ensure adhesion of the coating to the surface and prolong the service life of the coating system, we must implement the proper surface preparation. The method of surface preparation depends on the substrate, the environment, and the expected life of the coating system.

The surface must be dry and in sound condition. Mildew, oil, dust, dirt, loose rust, peeling paint or other contamination must be removed to ensure good adhesion.
