Surface Preparation - Stainless Steel

Pretreatment for Stainless Steel

Degreaser 10 & MetaLink

Sand polished stainless steel surfaces until all shine and/or gloss is gone. A stainless steel surface that is not properly prepared will have adhesion problems.

  • Scrub surface with Degrease 10 for 5 – 10 minutes before rinsing off with clean water.
  • Apply MetaLink to the dry surface.
  • Do not rinse off the MetaLink. Allow to dry for 1 – 2 hours before applying Endura Primer.
Stainless Steel surfaces can present unique coating challenges, we recommend that you contact your Endura representative prior to painting any stainless steel surfaces.


Sandblast (SSPC-SP5 White)

Note: Do not use any carbon steel media for blasting stainless steel.
