Any means for preparing a surface for painting including cleaning, sanding, spackling, and spot priming.
Creating the situation so the coatings will perform as expected. This includes for example, consideration of: profile, visible cleanliness, non-visible contaminants, sharp edges, welds, voids, oil and grease, and humidity.
Surface preparation: The operations necessary to produce a desired or specific surface condition.
All operation necessary to prepare a surface to receive a coating of paint.
Physical and/or chemical pretreatments to enhance the adhesive strength of an adhesive to be applied to a specific surface.
Physical and/or chemical preparation of an adherend to make it suitable for adhesive bonding.
The physical and chemical methods used to prepare a surface for further processing.
Cleaning and roughening the surface to be sprayed, usually by grit or bead blasting. This is to increase the adhesion of the coating to the substrate.
Preparing concrete surfaces prior to resurfacing or application of a decorative coating to remove contaminants and minor defects or to obtain the necessary degree of roughness for adequate bonding. (Also see abrasive blasting, acid etching, and grinding.)
Anything done to prepare a surface for some type of work.
Process of cleaning steelwork to a suitable standard prior to the applications of a first protective coating.
