The CTA primer for adhesives & tapes are an adhesion promoter for hard to bond substrates available in 236.5ml units. This product can be used on materials such as polyethylene, polypropylene, ABS, PET/PBT blends, concrete, wood, glass, metal and painted metal surfaces. We also offer a UV identifiable primer that has the same qualities but is luminescent under Ultra-Violet light. Also the metal primer red has a distinctive red die to easily see where it has been applied.
How to apply CTA’s primer for adhesives and tapes
- Apply a thin, uniform coating to the bonding surface with a brush or a swab, using the minimum amount that will fully coat the surface. This primer can also be applied with a pressurised flow gun, roller or other similar type of application equipment.
- Allow the primer to dry thoroughly before applying the tape or adhesive. This is usually accomplished between one – five minutes at room temperature.
- Ensure the primed surface remains free from contaminants prior to applying the tape or adhesive.
- Not that porous surfaces may require two applications of primer for a uniform coverage and good adhesion. Make sure that the first coat is dry before the second coat is applied.
Before using the primer for adhesives , we also recommend using a micro lint free cloth with our IPA Cleaner degreaser to prepare a surface before bonding. This ensures that the surface is completely clean and free from dust, dirt and grease.
