The paper concerns pull-off strength results of epoxy coatings without and with five diffe- rent fillers. Polymer coatings were applied to a steel substrate that was degreased and/or pretreated by the means of abrasive blasting using electrocorundum and cast steel shot with different grain sizes. The roughness profile and the basic roughness parameters were determined. The results showed a decisive effect of substrate preparation on the coating adhesion.
