There are many metals that do not lend themselves to coatings
that would normally have good adhesion. Among these are white
bronze and aluminum, plated finishes such as chrome or cadmium,
and steel. A primer will help obtain maximum adhesion to these
hard to finish surfaces. If you don't see the primer you need,
please check with one of our representatives.
#6574 Clear Epoxy Primer RFU:
#6574 is a clear primer that is to be used as a base coat for
either air dry lacquer, synthetic or baked enamel on metals to
obtain the maximum adhesion. #6574 is supplied ready for use and
should not be further reduced. It can be dipped or sprayed and
will air dry in 5 minutes at room temperature. We would not recommend
this primer for exterior applications as epoxies tend to yellow
Zinc Chromate Primer:
74-734/74-735 Metal Pretreatment is for use on
bare or raw aluminum and steel only. This is a phosphate activated
metal treatment that provides excellent adhesion to any coating
and prevents under-creepage of rust when protective coating is
damaged. Finished coat must be applied before exposing this primer
#12948 White Primer:
This material is ideally suited for the artificial fishing lure
industry in that adhesion to lead and cork are excellent. The
coating is designed with inherent flexibility and will also adhere
well to a variety of other metal, plastic and wood surfaces. Additional
benefits include, quick drying, water resistant, and non-yellowing.
We offer this material in 4 basic colors: #9263 Red, #9463 Black,
#9503 White, and #9499 Yellow. Nikolas Oxide Primers offer excellent
adhesion to cold rolled steel and to wood for fast setup and quick
dry-to-touch times. They are very durable with excellent resistance
to water, stains, humidity, and wear. They can be air dried, force
dried or baked and may be used with all types of application equipment.
They may also be sanded if desired.
#8321 or #11565 Clear Lacquer:
These two products are sometimes used as a clear primer under
our #9778 Uralac (2 part urethane) to provide good adhesion and
to allow the #9778 to be removed as easily as a reversible coating
while still providing the added chemical and weather resistance.
