The process of painting can be divided into three parts:

Pre-painting work

This includes preparation work like masonry work, crack filling, water proofing etc. These have to be undertaken to ensure maximum life for the final paint film.

Surface Preparation

This refers to the process of making the surface fit for painting. For example, if you are painting your interior walls, you would need to make them smooth by applying Putty and using the correspondent Primer. In case of microbial growth, use SCIB Etch or Seal Coat 102 AR before puttying as a neutralizer for alkaline salt on plastered substances.
