New to me powder coated print bed

I have received my PowderCoated Steel build plate. Tried using it this evening and it seemed my filament didn't want to stick to it. Do I have to make alterations to my filament settings? I started with 200°C nozzle and 65° - 70° C build plate temp. After a few failed starts, I returned to the original steel plate. This still had some KORES on it and I left it so. Due to a couple other issues like the filament being too loose and thin, I lowered the nozzle to 195° C and raised the bed to 80°C Print is now going OK. So what are the basics I should consider when using the textured plate? I had the impressing that due to the texturing, the filament might tend to stick better. Instead it acts more like what I would expect from a PTFE coating. By the way I am using PLA Lipstick Red from PRUSA.

Thanks all

I've had the same issue. Recalibration for the lower heigh solved it.
