5 WAYS TO SAVE WITH A BONDING PRIMER

With most projects, the biggest part of the budget is labor. A premium bonding primer can reduce time and effort on the job and increase your profitability.


Why Use a Best-in Class Bonding Primer?

If you’ve got a tough surface to tackle but don’t have time to sand, strip or de-gloss, a specialty bonding primer with high adhesion is your go-to solution. INSL-X® STIX® Waterborne Bonding Primer is an acrylic primer-sealer engineered to bond to hard-to-coat surfaces, providing the ideal base for top coats. Its tenacious adhesion creates paint-ready substrates, saving you valuable time and money.
