Why is Sandblasting a necessary surface prep before Painting
Professional painting experts always recommend including proper surface prep before painting it. But what's the reason behind it?
When you coat a surface with paint, it fails to adhere if the substrate is not smooth. In the presence of impurities, the paint or finishing coat will come off earlier than expected. Thus we can say that ignoring prep finish before painting is not a great idea.
Perfect surface prep helps improve the look and durability of your equipment.
