Surface Pretreatment & Repair

Surface pretreatment and preparation

Surface pretreatment is the key factors for the subsequent application steps.

In many cases surfaces such as concrete, metal or existing previous coatings are contaminated. These areas need to be cleaned mechanically. In general all surfaces must be dry, clean and free of oil, grease, dust and other contaminants. Various methods like grinding, grit blasting or blast-cleaning with sand or water produce a rough, even surface in addition to cleaning it thoroughly.

Chemical preparation

Priming is always recommended after preparation of the surface area. Primers secure pore density, level the surface, take care of voids and subsequently improve adhesion properties. Before continuing with next layer the surface has to be tack free. The timeframe to observe depends on whether or not a 1-Part or a 2-Part Primer system is used.

Before starting with any coatings adhesive pull-strength measures of the substrate should be taken. The target value of the pull-off-test should not fall short of 1,5 Mpa, to ensure a sustainable layer of coating.
