BOYSEN® Primeguard™

DESCRIPTION: BOYSEN® Primeguard™ is a water-based acrylic maintenance primer designed to have excellent adhesion and metal passivation. BOYSEN® Primeguard™ is used where superior protection and good adhesion on hard-to-adhere metal surfaces is desired. It eliminates the need for a vinyl butyral wash primer tie coat.

PRINCIPAL USES: For galvanized iron, stainless steel, aluminum and other metal works such as iron and steel frame.

Exceptional adhesion - as BOYSEN® Primeguard™ has exceptional adhesion even on stainless steel and aluminum. It is also an environment-friendly alternative to traditional butyral wash primers.

Corrosion Resistance- It passivates the metal substrate to provide good corrosion resistance on carbon steel.                                              

Rapid Drying - dries in 20-30 minutes, compared to 8 hours for enamel primers. Recoat interval is 2 to 4 hours, resulting in faster paint jobs and significant labor cost savings.

Thermoplastic Nature - Remains flexible over time. It does not pose problems of intercoat adhesion and is capable of being topcoated by most solvent-based home coatings.

Environmentally Safe - It has low odor, is non-flammable, and does not use hazardous solvents. It does not contain lead and is non-toxic compared to traditonal anti-corrosive primers.

Easy Water Cleanup - no need for thinners and solvent reducers. Tools and painting equipment, spills and paint drips while still wet can be cleaned by water and soap solutions.
