I have a Box load of resin Items i am due to have Vac Metalised, the company that is doing this for me has informed me that silicone deposits are showing through the test pieces i sent to them.

before sending i made sure they were cleaned thoroughly and when i primed them the paint seem to adhere to the resin really well, no seperation or anything.

it has been suggested that i clean the items in the usual way and then get them 2 pack laqured or 2 pack painted, or maybe even clean then in acetone.

anyone have any other suggestions or is this the way to guy ?

Also is it true that wet n dry sandpaper is silicone based too ??

I had a bunch of items done by VMC in the UK which seemed to work fine with just normal automotive grey primer wetsanded with 1200 grit.
