When using a high performance coating it is vital to ensure that the surfaces to be treated are well prepared and clean before coating as this will help ensure that surface contamination is minimised and will help achieve a quality finish. Please see our free guide: GUIDANCE FOR PREPARATION. 

Pre-treatments also include a cost effective recovered (recycled) cleaner/thinner (XTR112). Cleaners, gun wash and degreasers also available.

To ensure the correct choice of paint or coating and with so much emphasis on good preparation, we recommend you talk with our Technical Team prior to undertaking any major project. Call us on 01202 295570.
