Spray.Bike paint will adhere to most raw metal
and painted surfaces without any major pre-prep. However, if painting
onto a fresh-from-the-factory painted bike with a high gloss finish, rub
down the frame with a very fine sandpaper or an abrasive cloth, just to
give the surface a little ‘bite’ for the paint to sit on.
Always ensure that all surfaces are completely clean and grease free. Any micro-film left from degreasers or cleaning products can create a barrier preventing Spray.Bike from adhering properly.
A pure medical alcohol is recommended for the ultimate pre-paint cleaner - but do make sure all residue is removed with absorbent kitchen paper.
