Surface preparation


  • This product should be applied to a surface that has been blast cleaned. It can be applied either directly to steel or suitably primed surface (e.g. Epilux 610 or Zincanode 685).
  • Remove all wax, oil and grease by solvent cleaning as per the guidelines of SSPC-SP1.
  • Remove weld spatter where necessary and round off all rough weld seams and sharp edges to create a smooth surface.
  • Abrasive blast clean to a minimum standard of Sa2½ (ISO 8501-1:1988) or SSPC-SP10.
  • Any surface defects revealed by blast cleaning should be ground, filled or treated.
  • An average surface profile of 50 to 75 microns is required.
  • After blasting, remove dust from the surface and ensure that it is clean and dry.
  • Apply a suitable primer such as Epilux 610 or Zincanode 685 immediately after blasting to prevent oxidation and recontamination of the steel surface. In case of oxidation or recontamination, re-blast to the required standard.


  • Ensure that the surface is sound. Remove laitence by thorough wire-brushing, acid etching or sweep blasting. Blowholes and other defects should be filled with Solventless.
