Do you let adhesion promoter dry?
DRY & RECOAT Allow more time at cooler temperatures. Dries to touch in 10 minutes and dries to handle in 15-30 minutes. A topcoat must be applied within 10 minutes after primer application.
Do you spray adhesion promoter before primer?
In most cases, a plastic adhesion promoter must be applied over bare plastic areas before priming or sealing. Recommendation: AP200 Plastic Adhesion Promoter. Apply 1 to 2 coats of adhesion promoter allowing for a 2- to 5-minute flash between coats. Allow a 5-minute flash before applying primer or sealer.
Can you paint directly over adhesion promoter?
Also pay attention to the sanding time of the product, as sanding too early in the curing of the adhesive will not allow the adhesive time to adhere to the surface. Do not use a paint manufacturer’s plastic adhesion promoter.
Is Bulldog adhesion promoter a primer?
Bulldog ® Adhesion Promoter is the premier adhesion promoter for the auto body collision repair market. It is fast drying and provides superior adhesion on all flexible and rigid plastic parts.
Can I use Bulldog adhesion promoter on metal?
Bulldog ® Sealer & Adhesion Promoter is the only one-component sealer and adhesion promoter for the auto body collision repair market that can be used on both primed and painted metal and plastic. Bulldog ® seals these surfaces, offering fast dry times and excellent holdout, while filling scratches.
How long after adhesion can I paint promoter?
Allow the surface to dry for three hours before applying any paint.
Does ABS need adhesion promoter?
for ABS YOU DO NOT NEED AN ADHESION PROMOTER, it wont hurt if you use it anyway, but it’s NOT going to fail if you don’t.
How do adhesion promoters work?
Adhesion promoters (AP) are bi-functional materials that increase adhesive strength between the coating and the substrate and sometimes are referred to as coupling agents. Unlike priming systems, adhesion promoters are generally applied at thinner film thicknesses.
Is Primer the same as adhesion promoter?
Adhesion promoter bascially makes the paint stick like nothing else.. While the primer ‘primes’ the surface for paint, ie. covers sanding marks, prevents bleed through, fisheyes, etc. Prep the part, clean it, AP, primer, shoot some color, clear, sand and buff.
How do you spray adhesion promoter?
To spray, hold can parallel 8-10 inches from the surface to be coated and use in an even, sweeping motion. To avoid runs and sags, apply in 2-3 light coats. Allow primer to dry for 2-3 minutes between coats. Apply color coat within last 10 minutes of primer coat.
Do plastic bumpers need primer?
Many bumper cover manufacturers are using a water-based primer both because water isn’t readily absorbed into the plastic and because dissimilar coatings (solvent over water) act like great barrier coats. Water-based primers are a good choice.
How long does adhesion promoter need to dry?
Dries to touch in 10 minutes and dries to handle in 15-30 minutes. A topcoat must be applied within 10 minutes after primer application. For best results apply a finish coat of Rust-Oleum Automotive finish.
Can you sand Bulldog adhesion promoter?
Bare metal and body filler must be primed and dry or wet sanded with 320 grit sandpaper prior to applying Bulldog.
What other applications can adhesion promoter be used on?
These are used mainly as adhesion primer at low film thickness (max 5µm) to improve the adhesion of printing inks on untreated or EPDM modified polypropylene and other plastic substrates. They also improve the adhesion on metal such as aluminum or galvanized steel.
