KILZ® ADHESION

Promotes
Adhesion

KILZ® ADHESION Interior & Exterior Bonding Primer is a water-base, modified-acrylic primer specifically formulated to bond to a variety of ‘tough-to-paint’ surfaces. Its advanced chemistry provides a sound anchor for topcoats while reducing or potentially eliminating the need for sanding dense, glossy surfaces. This product may be used under epoxies, lacquers and products containing Xylene or other hot solvents, provided it’s allowed to dry for 24 hours before topcoating and tested for compatibility in an inconspicuous area before full coat application. Use KILZ Adhesion where ensuring a secure bond is critical in situations when performance of a traditional water or oil-base primer may be questionable. For interior and exterior use on a variety of surfaces including; Kynar®, PVC, vinyl, Formica®, glass, tile, glazed brick, chalky paints, glossy finishes, fiberglass and metals. Not recommended for floors or horizontal surfaces subject to prolonged water contact.

Available in Quarts and Gallons

Surface Preparation

  • All surfaces must be clean, dry and free of oil, grease, mildew, wax, dust, flaky rust, mill scale, loose paint, chalk and other foreign matter that could interfere with adhesion.

  • If washing is necessary, use a non-soapy detergent or a TSP substitute, rinse well and allow to dry.

  • Remove loose rust, peeling paint and mill scale with a scraper, wire brush or sandpaper.

  • Clean bare metal in accordance with SPC (The Society for Protective Coatings) specifications for the proper surface preparation of metal surfaces.

  • Peeling or Checked Paint: Scrape off loose paint and sand to a smooth surface. Sanding or removal of paint containing lead is hazardous.

  • Mold or Mildew Covered Surfaces: Wash the area with a mildew remover, rinse with water and allow to dry before priming.

  • While KILZ Adhesion Primer is formulated to bond without sanding, it is recommended that a small area be tested for adhesion prior to beginning the job.
