POR-15 METAL PREP (formerly called "Prep & Ready" or "Metal Ready") provides the best adhesion for POR-15 on any bare metal surface, including aluminum and shiny polished metal surfaces. The simple process gently etches metal, creating an ideal anchor pattern for coatings such as POR-15, while simultaneously leaving a zinc phosphate coating to insure chemical bonding of paint and steel.
Avoid other preps that may leave harmful residues which prevent proper adhesion.
After thoroughly degreasing your work piece, apply environmentally safe POR-15 METAL PREP to both neutralize any rust and etch any clean bare metal. This will allow better adhesion of POR-15 or any other paint. POR-15 METAL PREP is not caustic, corrosive, toxic or flammable.
Think of POR-15 METAL PREP as an inexpensive insurance polcy that guarantees perfect adhesion of POR-15 to any metallic surface every time.
It is required for painting galvanized steel, stainless steel or aluminum. It is also required when painting new, smooth or bright steel.
