This primer is suitable for exposures in Environmental Zones 1A (interior, normally dry) and 1B (exterior, normally dry), and is intended for brush, roller, or spray application over steel surfaces prepared in accordance with SSPC-SP 6/NACE No. 3, Commercial Blast Cleaning, or SSPC-SP 11, Power Tool Cleaning to Bare Metal, or better.
