Overcoat Preparation

  • Stir the paint properly before using
  • Use recommended thinners only
  • Do not over thin the paint more than the recommended levels

Surface Preparation

  • Ensure removal of all dirt, grease, and loosely bonded or flaking materials from the primed surface
  • Ensure the primer surface is free of all contaminations
  • Perform abrasive blast clean of the surface so that it complies with minimum Sa2½ (ISO 8501-1:2007) or SSPC-SP6
  • Prepare metal surfaces to the level of Sa2.5 for maintenance and repair jobs
  • Use power tool cleaning depending on the primer selected for maintenance and repair jobs
