What should be taken into consideration while painting the metal surfaces?

Metal surfaces get into reaction with the oxygen in the air and corrode after a while as a result of oxidation-reduction reaction. As a result of this reaction which is called rusting the paint film falls into pieces. In order to avoid this, the anti-corroding primer should be applied as 2 coats on such metal surfaces in order to break the contact with oxygen. Afterwards, finishing synthetic paint should be applied on the surface with primer. Synthetic painting is not applied to galvanize, aluminum and copper surfaces; adhesion problems occur if it is applied.
