Preparation for new work

The substrate must be clean, dry and free of oil and dirt. Deteriorated wood has to be removed to the sound wood. For very porous substrates like fir and pine it is recommended to apply a second primer coat.

For existing work

Clean, degrease and sand. Remove loose, flaking or cracked paint layers. Treat bare areas as new work.
