Additional information

Surface Preparation

Ensure all surfaces are clean, dry and free from grease, oil and any other contaminants.

Bare steel should be free from dust, rust and scale. Blast cleaning to SA 2.5 is recommended. If blast cleaning is impractical, mechanical cleaning should be employed as hand cleaning does not clean the steel to the required degree.

Any oil or grease should be removed with Coo-Var Degreaser before de-rusting. Where blast cleaning is carried out after assembly, special attention must be paid to edges, corners, nuts, bolts, welds etc. Welds should, if necessary be ground and all weld spatter, slag etc must be removed.


  • Mix well before use.
  • Care must be taken during application that the temperature is above the dew point to avoid any contamination.
  • In confined spaces, provide adequate ventilation during application and drying.
