A clean, dry surface is essential to the success of any coatings application. Our systems include products and procedures which will enable you to obtain proper surface conditions.
Remember – Clean before sanding. Sanding often melts grease, wax and oils into the surface making it impossible to obtain a clean surface.
Many applicators scrub the surface they are going to paint with powdered household scouring cleanser and a 3MTM Scotch-Brite® Pad before any other prep work is performed. This is an excellent practice as careful observation of the rinse water will tell you when you have a clean surface. Breaks, holes or beading of the rinse water indicates areas which need additional attention.
