In industrial aspects, to glue things like rubber, polyethylene, glasses, adhesive primers are used. These are very convenient as it helps to adhere to hard substances faster. It also acts as a surface cleaner sometimes. Applying these to the material for sticking is also easy when the area is small.
Materials to stick
These adhesive primers are best for sticking materials like polyethylene, polypropylene, ABS, PET/PBT blends, acrylics, rubber, flexible elastomers, silicone, fluoroelastomers, EPDM, TPE, PVC, CPVC pipes, and fittings. It is the best choice for increasing adhesion between films and vinyl graphics in automotive detailing. Hence, if you are seeking a way to stick these materials together, then adhesive primers are the best choice.
Applying and removing
Applying the adhesive primer on small surfaces is easy by brushing it or by using a swab. For a larger area, it is coated with a pressurized flow gun. It can be taken off with the help of isopropyl alcohol and solvent cement. The presence of a cure accelerator helps the adhesion process occur faster and also helps as a solvent for removing specks of dirt, tar, etc. Also, in some primers, a BETASEAL urethane adhesive system is present.
Drying becomes easy!
The drying time of adhesive primers depends upon product to product. Some dry as fast as 30 seconds when some take 2 minutes to 10 minutes. The drying time of primers is based on the temperature at which they have been glued together. Primers with Zinc coating can help provide corrosion resistance in galvanizing applications.
