New industrial-strength cleaning wipes from Rust-Oleum Corp. are designed to speed surface preparation for coatings projects.

Rust-Oleum Pre-Paint and Cleaning Wipes are pre-moistened and double-textured: The abrasive side is designed for extra cleaning power: the smooth side, for removing ordinary dirt, dust and grime. The citrus-scented wipes leave no residue, the company says.

Rust-Oleum PrePaint Wipes

The wipes have a smooth side and an abrasive side, for regular and extra cleaning.

The wipes "thoroughly clean the surface to prepare it for optimal coating adhesion," according to Rust-Oleum.

The company notes that paint and coatings can fail prematurely when applied to surfaces with dirt, grease or other contamination.

Rust-Oleum recommends the wipes for use on equipment, machinery, pipes, handrails, walls, doors "or any surface that needs general cleaning or preparation for painting."  Each container contains 90 wipes.
