ReturnLearn How to Use the Plastic Primer Spray
WHAT IS A PLASTIC PRIMER?
Primers are a type of product applied prior to painting, which help to enhance the effect and the duration of the final coat. In general, they provide a base layer that facilitates both the adhesion of the paint and its visibility.
Most plastics generally present problems when trying to paint directly onto them. That’s why you’ll often need a plastic primer: a clear product that serves as a base layer that you can effectively paint afterwards. Like other Montana Colors primers, it’s a product designed for a special use – in this case on plastic – specifically for Ethylene Propylene Dino type M surfaces.
WHAT PROPERTIES DOES THE PLASTIC PRIMER SPRAY HAVE?
As well as the ease of application and storage that the aerosol format has, our primer paint for plastic surfaces is fast drying, has good elasticity and excellent adhesion to polypropylene (modified EPDM), although its properties extend to practically all kinds of plastics.
HOW DO YOU USE THE PRIMER PAINT FOR PLASTIC SURFACES?
To use this clear plastic primer spray, simply follow the same process as with most spray paint, varnishes, or primers, outlined here:
- First, thoroughly shake the can. Do this for about a minute, after hearing the noise of the metal mixing ball that is inside.
- Make sure the surface you want to paint is completely clean and dry. To ensure good results, you should test the product on a part of the object that is not very visible.
- Once you’ve checked the application, apply the primer using thin layers. After 10 minutes, the surface will be ready to be painted.
- Don't forget: once you're done, invert the aerosol and spray for several seconds. This will prevent the nozzle from clogging.
CHECK PRIMERS AND VARNISHES FOR ALL NEEDS
Although Montana Colors spray paints boast excellent results on almost all surfaces, there are a number of tools that help extend the durability of the paint. These products are designed to prepare the surface before applying the paint (primers), or to protect it after painting (varnishes). Using both options is undoubtedly the best guarantee for a durable and resistant finish.
However, bearing in mind that each surface has different characteristics, Montana Colors has different options depending on your needs. From primers for plastic surfaces, like the one we’ve seen today, to the Wash Primer Spray, ideal for polished metals; the Matt White Base Primer, recommended when you want to paint an object in vivid colors; to the Glitter Varnish Spray, which adds a sparkling finish; or the 2K Component Varnish, which offers a highly resistant finish – even against solvents.ShareMay 31, 2021
