Surface Preparation

Ensure that surfaces are dry and clean and free from curing compounds or release agents. No chipping or roughening of surface is required provided the surface condition is stable. Old paintwork which is stable can remain. Any contamination including commercial detergents used for cleaning must be thoroughly rinsed off with plenty of water.


Stir well before use.
