Chemlok® 8008 Primer Where to Buy

Product Information

Chemlok® 8008 primer is a water-based primer that bonds elastomers to metals and other substrates when used in combination with Chemlok water-based covercoat adhesives. It is composed of a mixture of dispersed mineral fillers, organic compounds, resins and polymer latices in an aqueous medium.

Shelf Life

Shelf life is six months from date of shipment when stored by the recipient in a well ventilated area at 21-27°C (70-80°F) in original, unopened container. Do not freeze product. Storage below 4°C (40°F) may be detrimental to the primer’s properties.

Features and Benefits

Environmentally Preferred - provides low VOC and HAP for reduced emissions, allowing for safer work environment and regulatory compliance.

Versatile - functions as an effective primer for many materials such as steel, phosphated steel, nylon, aluminum and brass.

Environmentally Resistant - preferred water-based Chemlok primer for glycol resistance; provides excellent resistance to water, salt spray, oil and heat.

Durable - maintains excellent metal adhesion under flexing and high-stress conditions.

Excellent Appearance - provides a smooth coating for use by dip or spray applications. The green color affords good contrast with water-based covercoat adhesives and prepared substrates.

Easy to Use - easily redispersed within 5 to 15 minutes of stirring; imparts little or no settling; ready to use directly out of the container without dilution.
