Ensure that the surface is clean, dry, free from all loose particles, dust, dirt, grease, wax, mould, fungal growth, etc. before application. All surfaces should be thoroughly rubbed down using a suitable abrasive paper and thereafter wiped off

Sand the surface with Emery Paper 180 to smoothen the putty surface. Wipe off loose particles. Apply another coat of primer on the puttied surface
