Most application problems are a direct result of poor or improper procedures, marginal housekeeping conditions, inadequate equipment, or a combination of these factors.
Following a few rules and checking regularly that the rules are being followed can prevent many problems before they occur.
- When using compressed air, a clean, oil-free, dry air supply is a must. This is just as important for tool operation (e.g. grinders, sanders, etc.) as it is when spraying paint. General air quality, filters and dryers should be checked regularly.
- Make certain the products and procedures used in or near the paint areas are compatible with Awlgrip products and general paint procedures. Sealers, cleaners, lubricants and hand
cleaners/sanitizers containing silicone should not be used in or around the paint shop.
