Steel surfaces can sometimes exhibit residual mill-scale as side effect of the production process and storage, as well as oils and grease which can sometime come from the transportation of materials.

Having the steel prepared by shot blasting is generally considered to be the most important factor affecting any corrosion protection system/coating.
