Definition - What does Deglosser mean?
A deglosser is a chemical agent that can be applied to prepare dirty or shining surfaces for a new paint or finish. It completely removes the need for cleaning and sanding the surface that needs to be re-painted. Thus, it eliminates the removal of chipping, cracking and peeling between old and new finishes.
Corrosionpedia explains Deglosser
A deglosser can be used for the following:
- On latex or oil-base paints, enamels, varnishes and other finishes.
- It is easier than sanding, cleaning, removing chipping and the peeling of a surface, and thus saves time.
- Once a deglosser is applied, the paint adhesion to the surface increases, which helps new paint to bond completely to old finishes.
- A deglosser also helps in cleaning and removes dirt, stains, grease and wax from the surface of the metal.
