New Work:
GALVANISED IRON: Thoroughly clean with Scotchbrite Pads and Dekade Galvanised Iron Cleaner. Repeat this procedure until a water break free surface has been achieved.
FERROUS METALS: For best results, abrasive blast to SA 2.5 of the Swedish Standard. Alternate but less effective: Prepare steel by wire brushing.

Previously Painted Surfaces:
Sand, scrape, chip etc. to remove all loose flaking surface rust, mill scale or existing paint. Wash down with Dekade Brush and Rinse Degreaser to remove oil, grease, salt deposits or any other surface contamination. Rinse the surface thoroughly with water ensuring that a water break free surface is achieved.
