Surface Preparation / Cleaning
Sand Blast the surface to min. Sa 2.5. Surface should be free of oil, grease, dust and loose particles. For mechanical cleaning surface should be sand blasted to min. St 2.A sound prepared surface will lead to a better paint application. When used over old coating systems, the surface must be clean, dry and properly anchored.
