Wax-Tape Primer is a blend of petroleum wax, plasticiser and corrosion inhibitors. It has a paste-like consistency, and is designed to displace moisture and wet the surface, ensuring adhesion of the tape. Wax-Tape Primer is easily applied by hand.

End Use:

As a surface conditioner and wetting agent for above ground metal surfaces prior to application of #2 colored Wax-Tape

Application Procedures:

Wire brush or wipe the surface clean. Apply Wax-Tape Primer by hand. A thin film of primer rubbed and pressed on the surface will be sufficient. On wet, cold or rusty surfaces, rub and press Wax-Tape Primer firmly onto these areas, displacing any moisture and ensuring adhesion to the surface. After application of the primer, #2 colored Wax-Tape may be applied immediately.
