Primers & Activators

Primer is a material used to prep uncoated surfaces to prevent unnecessary paint absorption or to prevent the development of rust. Primers are able to be used on myriad surface types including wood, metal, canvas, metal, and much more. Primer types include:

  • General Purpose primer
  • Silicone
  • Adhesion Promoter
  • Tape
  • Metal
  • Electrical Insulation Primer

An Activator is a material used as catalyst for increasing paint curing speed, recoatability, and durability over time. Activators are available in various types including:

  • Instant Adhesive Activator
  • Silane Glass Treatment
  • Solvent-Free Activator

    Dow Corning brand primers, prime coats and adhesion promoters offer a variety of benefits to users. Robust adhesion maximizes reliability and offers protection across a wider range of environmental conditions. The range of device design options may be expanded by enabling adhesion or providing lower temperature adhesion to a wider variety of substrate materials. Low-temperature or room-temperature adhesion may also reduce energy or capital costs or increase manufacturing flexibility. Direct material costs may also be reduced when adhesion enhancers enable use of primerless silicones.
