|Publication Date:||15 June 2016|
|ICS Code (Surface preparation):||25.220.10|
This practice describes methods of preparing surfaces of new and weathered hot-dip galvanized steel for painting with liquid paint and coating products. Preparing surfaces of new and partially weathered galvanized steel for powder coating is addressed in Practice D7803. Hot-dip galvanized steel is produced by the immersion of fabricated or unfabricated products in a bath of molten zinc, as specified in Specifications A123/A123M or A153/A153M. This practice covers surface preparation on iron and steel products and hardware that have not been painted previously. Galvanized surfaces may have been treated with protective coatings to prevent the occurrence of wet storage stain. This practice does not apply to sheet galvanized steel products nor to the coil coating or continuous roller coating processes. Sheet and coil surface preparation can be done in accordance with Practice D7396.
