What are Surface Preparation Products and what do they do?

A bare surface that is not properly prepared prior to applying paint or stain can lead to reduced coating integrity and service life. According to paint experts almost 80% of all coatings failures can be directly attributed to inadequate surface preparation, which affects coating adhesion. Surface preparation and surface repair are the most important requirements for maximum durability from any paint system. A properly prepared surface will save you headaches during and after any paint application process.

To ensure adhesion of the coating to the substrate and prolong the service life of the coating system, a proper surface preparation process must be put in place. Deciding which surface preparation process to implement depends on the surface to be coated, the substrate, the environment, and the expected life of the coating system. All surfaces, whether painted or unpainted, must be clean, free from shine, unblemished and dry prior to finishing.
