All surfaces should be cleaned and dried prior to application.

Steel surfaces should be blast cleaned at least to grade Sa2. Clean small damages by tool cleaning to St2. (ISO 8501-1) If blast cleaning is not possible, phosphating is recommended for cold rolled steel to improve adhesion.

Zinc surfaces should be sweep blast cleaned with mineral abrasives, e.g. quartz sand, to an even roughness. (SaS, SFS 5873) If sweep blasting is not possible, the surface should be roughened by hand abrading or washed with Fonteclean ZN detergent.

Aluminium surfaces should be sweep blast cleaned with non-metallic abrasives to an even roughness. (SaS, SFS 5873) If sweep blasting is not possible, the surface should be roughened by hand abrading or washed with Fonteclean AL detergent.

Primed surfaces should have all oil, grease, salt and dirt removed from the surface by appropriate means. Repair any damage to the primer coat. Note the overcoating time of primer. (ISO 12944-4)
