Exterior Galvanized Metal

Surface Preparation

All surfaces must be cured, clean, sound, dry and free of all dirt, dust, efflorescence, wax, oil, grease, chalk and any other contamination that would interfere with new coating adhesion. On new galvanized surfaces, solvent wipe to remove surface contamination, then use an etching solution or abrade the surface by sanding. On weathered surfaces, power or hand wash with detergent and rinse thoroughly. The surface must be dull and have a profile; use an etching solution if needed. Performance will be directly related to the degree of surface preparation.
