Practical: Practical coverage depends on many factors such as porosity and roughness of the substrate and material losses during application. 

Surface Preparation: 

Remove grease, oil and all other surface contaminations by alkaline or high pressure (steam) cleaning in combination with appropriate detergents. For optimum results remove rust, rust scale, mill scale and deteriorated coatings by abrasive blasting to Sa 2½ (ISO 8501-1: 1988), blast profile max. 50 µm. If blasting is not possible remove loose rust and loose coatings by scraping and/or wire brushing to St 3 (ISO 8501-1: 1988). 
Zinc or aluminium corrosion products can be removed with Rust-oleum Surfa-Etch 108 Etching Solution followed by rinsing with plenty of fresh water, or by brush-off blasting. Remove deteriorated coatings by scraping and wire brushing. Sand intact coatings to roughen the surface slightly. The surface must be clean and may be slightly damp during application.
