Remove grease, oil and all other surface contaminations by alkaline or high pressure (steam) cleaning in combination with appropriate detergents. For optimum results remove rust, rust scale, mill scale and deteriorated coatings by abrasive blasting. If blasting is not possible remove loose rust and loose coatings by scraping and/or wire brushing. Sand previous coatings which are in good condition to remove gloss and to roughen the surface slightly.
The surface must be clean and dry during application.
