General
Ensure surfaces to be painted are clean, dry and free of contamination, in hot and windy conditions or when painting very absorbent surfaces, dampen the surface with water before painting. Fill surface defects with suitable filler or sealsnt. Surface must be clean, dry and free from all dirt, dust, grease, oil, rust and any other surface contamination.
Previously Painted Surfaces
Remove loose and flaking paint and sand surface thoroughly. On aged enamel use Taubmans 3 in 1 for intercoat adhesion. Treat bare areas as for new work.
New Work/ Unpainted Suraces
Timber - Sand weathered (greyed) timber to the original timber surface. Tannin rich timbers should be primed with Taubmans Prep Right Wood Primer or Taubmans 3 in 1.
Galvanised Iron - Degrease new surfaces, thoroughly clean weathered surfaces to ensure adhesion. For structural galvanized iron, abrade with 240# paper to remove chemical treatments. If red dust is present, treat as for steel.
Cement Render/Concrete - Allow concrete, cement render and mortar to cure for 28 days before painting.
Steel - Remove rust and primse with Taubmans PrepRight Iron and Stee Primer.
Before Painting
