Eastwood PRE Painting Prep

Product Overview:

Description

The final step in surface paint preparation—Eastwood's PRE™ Paint Prep—just spray or wipe on, and wipe off!

  • Removes silicone, wax, polish, grease and dirt
  • Helps promote paint adhesion
  • Easy spray-on, wipe-off application
  • Available in aerosol, 30-oz., or gallon
  • Available in a Low-VOC formula for regulated areas

If you're looking for a 50 State Compliant cleaner and degreaser that's available in both bottles and pre-soaked wipes, you need to check out Eastwood PRE GREEN Paint Prep that has no harsh chemicals.


Proper surface preparation is one of the most important factors in helping you achieve a high-quality final finish. Our specially formulated PRE Paint Prep helps you prepare a surface for painting by removing dirt, wax, polish, grease, silicone, buffing compound, even road tar, ensuring a clean surface that's ready for final painting or powder-coating. Auto paint prep gets no easier!

PRE Painting Prep is very easy to use: just spray it on and wipe it off. Works better than lacquer thinner, which can leave a thin residue on the surface that could interfere with paint adhesion.

A "Low-VOC" PRE Painting Prep Formula, #11949Z, is available for shipment to California.

Not for sale or use in California. Eastwood Paints are formulated to meet National Rule VOC regulations, check with your local and state guidelines as some areas may have stricter regulations than others.

Application Tips

PRE Painting Prep is a blend of solvents that may damage plastic, so please test first.

Works better than lacquer thinner that can leave a film behind, possibly compromising paint adhesion. Use to prepare surfaces for all Eastwood paints, including our exhaust manifold paints. On waxed areas, or surfaces that may have silicones, more than one application may be necessary. The 11-oz. aerosol can treats 10 sq. ft.

What about "ceramic coatings"? The latest fad seems to be these "ceramic" polymer treatments but I can't find any information on whether these coatings offer special challenges to the painter? Do they cause fish eyes? Will Pre remove them?

Asked by: JerryV

Can this be used on Eastwood self-etching primer between coats? 

Asked by: Dustin
This is a solvent and should not be applied liberally to any existing primer. If anything it can be sprayed lightly on a rag and the surface wiped down but it should not be saturated with a cleaning agent such as this.

Can I use this on an existing paint that I am planning on painting over without it softening the paint?

Asked by: Jay727
It depends on the type of paint that is down. If non catalyzed- it could soften it or even cause damage. If catalyzed; the coating should be perfectly fine. Be sure to test a small area first.
