All joint surfaces should be sound, clean, dry and free of loose and flaking material, dirt, laitance, curing compounds, release agent, oil and grease. Loose pliable or damaged areas of substrate should be cut back to a form edge and repaired with a good quality repair mortar. Ensure that the surface is absolutely dry before application.
Remove all traces of previous applied sealant and then apply primer on painted surfaces all loosely adhering paint must be removed (contamination will reduce the strength of the bond), if in doubt remove all previous decorations. To optimize adhesion of both primer and sealant, round or remove sharp edges and corners. Polyseal Primer is to be applied by brush in one thin and uniform coat.
