Surface Preparation

All surfaces must be clean, dry, and free of any dirt, dust, oil, surface chemicals, or other contaminants that may interfere with optimum adhesion.
If mildew is present, or suspected, treat with a 3:1 water and household bleach solution, leaving it on for 20 minutes and adding more as it dries. Rinse thoroughly and let dry.
Any unsound areas in the surface, i.e. blisters, delamination, deterioration, moisture saturation, severe corrosion, sharp projections, ridges, etc. shall be repaired or replaced.
Dull any glossy areas by sanding with medium (120) grit sandpaper.
Deteriorated or badly corroded metal shall be replaced. Rusted areas shall be mechanically abraded to remove all loose rust and then primed.
New metal exhibiting any type of surface film shall be washed with a vinegar or muriatic acid solution, or equivalent, to totally remove this film.
Surfaces that are contaminated with oil, grease, embedded dirt, loose paint, or coating, etc. shall be cleaned using high-pressure power washing. It may be necessary to remove tightly adhering contaminants. Rinse thoroughly with clean water to remove all traces of the cleaner.
