For unpainted galvanized iron sheets, etch the surface by applying 10% BOYSEN® Metal Etching Solution #71 (dilute 1 part of B-71 to 9 parts water). Wipe the surface with rag soaked in BOYSEN® Paint Thinner #0340 to remove grease. Rinse with water and let dry.
For prepainted galvanized iron sheets, scuff sand surface using sandpaper and wipe the surface with clean rag before applying paint. Spot prime if necessary.
For corroded G.I. surface, remove rust by wire brushing and use BOYSEN® Metal Etching Solution #71. Let it stay for 10-15 minutes. Be sure to wash off surface thoroughly with water or paint thinner and let dry. Apply primer a few hours after application of B-71 and before rust sets in.
For new unglazed rooftiles, make sure surfaces are completely clean and dry.
