Pre-Cleaners are a critical component to the painting process. Both a waterborne and solventborne cleaner should be used to remove all contaminants from a surface. When using a pre-cleaner such as OneChoice® SX330 Wax and Grease Remover or SWX350 H20-So-Clean® Waterborne Pre-cleaner , DO NOT allow the cleaner to dry on the panel. Cleaners are designed to float contaminants to the surface and then be wiped with a clean, dry cloth. If it is not completely wiped dry before painting, wipe marks may be evident in the finished film. This may lead to paint failures such as blistering and adhesion loss.
Whether you use cleaner from an aerosol can or a pump applicator, always apply utilizing this “Spray on/Wipe off” procedure.
