PROBLEM: GALVANIZED METAL PEELING

GALVANIZED METAL PEELING
Is an adhesion loss of the paint due to inadequate surface preparation.

PEELING CAUSES
Usually no or improper priming. Improper surface prep or choice of paint. Not removing rust, oil and other matter. Not deglossing baked enamel finishes. Painting too soon after cleaning galvanized surface. Galvanized metal is very alkaline until weathered.

PEELING SOLUTIONS
Remove all rust, loose paint and other particles. All dust must be rinsed or wiped away. Allow galvanized metal to weather prior to coating. Apply an acrylic corrosion-resistant primer. New galvanized metal must be primed with an acrylic corrosion-resistant primer if the finish coat is oil-base or vinyl latex.

PRIMERS & INTERIOR FINISHES
Priming is essential for better adhesion, sheen uniformity, mildew control and durability. Select a top quality interior paint in the color and sheen of your choice.
