Preparing Metal for Painting

When it comes to applying any coat of paint, it’s important to spend time preparing the surface. When the surface has been prepared properly, the coating in question can perform properly to the best of its ability. With a properly prepared surface, you will avoid flaking or peeling when you apply the new coating. You will also be able to make sure all dirt and debris has been removed, thus ensuring a smooth and even surface with no lumps and bumps that may present themselves due to loose material being painted over.

A quality product will also help you to remove marks and stains, such as an oil patch, which would certainly cause a problem if you were to attempt to paint over it.

Cleaning and preparing a substrate prior to painting will help the paint to perform in a number of ways. Asides from the obvious (the way paint looks when dry), a surface which is free from dirt, stains, marks and debris will help the pain to perform as it should, according to the technical data sheet. A surface which is free from grease and oil will also be much easier to coat that a surface which is left un-prepared. If you are still unsure why it is important to prepare a surface properly, we have a number of resources available that highlight the importance of surface prep.
