Prior to painting or staining, surfaces must be properly prepared to ensure a quality application. The method of surface preparation depends on the surface material, environment, and the expected life of the coating or paint covering. Adhesion of the paint or coating to the surface is very important to increase the service life, and proper surface preparation is a key application success factor.
High-pressure washing systems are a very common and popular approach to surface preparation, dramatically reducing prep time. High-pressure systems are ideal to remove mildew, oil, dust, dirt, loose rust, peeling paint or other contamination to provide a good surface for adhesion. The required pressure varies by application, so the use of a pressure regulator valve and gauge is required to determine pressure setting.
Cat Pumps offers long-lasting, direct-drive and belt-drive pumps that are typically used for paint preparation. With field-proven dependability in applications around the globe, Cat Pumps provides the best high-pressure pumps and systems for pressure wash and paint preparation.
