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.

Sandblasting

Sandblast (SSPC-SP5 White)

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