English term or phrase: create a key (ver frase)
Hola de nuevo,
en un texto de especificaciones técnicas sobre superficies de aparatos recreativos para niños, se dice:

"All steel work shot blast to remove grease and to create a key of one coat of high build primer followed by 2 coats of electro statically applied gloss paint"

La explicación que me han dado para "create a key" es: "To create a key means to treat the surface in such a way as that it helps the paint adhere to the metal"

¿Cuál es la expresión equivalente en castellano? ¿Es correcto "crear una clave" o cualquier otra expresión literal?
