Surface preparation

CONCRETE SURFACES: Remove all dirt and old, flaking paint coats. Remove calcium salts by washing the surface with RENSA ETCHING Etching Liquid (diluted with water 1 : 2). After etching rinse the surface with water and let it dry. Do not paint the concrete until the seepage of calcium salts from the concrete has ceased. If the salt formation continues, e.g. due to inadequate damp-proofing, painting is not recommended. METAL PARTS: Clean galvanized surfaces from dirt and grease. Wire-brush rusty areas andvprime them with FERREX AQUA.


Stir thoroughly before use. Reserve a sufficient amount of paint in the same vessel for each uniform surface. Colour differences will thus be avoided. Top coating with undiluted SAKU socle paint.
