Trenton Wax-Tape Primer is a blend of microcrystalline waxes, plasticizers, and corrosion inhibitors (no clay fillers). It has a paste-like consistency and is designed to displace moisture and wet the surface, ensuring adhesion of the tape. It is
easily applied by hand.
As a surface conditioner for underground
metal surfaces prior to application of #1 Wax-Tap and #2 brown Wax-Tape.
Wire brush and scrape the surface clean.
Apply Wax-Tape primer by hand (glove). A thin film of primer
will be sufficient. On wet, cold or rusty surfaces, rub and
press WaxTape Primer firmly onto these areas, displacing moisture
and ensuring adhesion to the surface. After application of
the primer, #1 Wax-Tape and #2 brown Wax-Tape may be applied immediately.
