Anybody used this stuff? I had a litle "D.O.T.3 vs. paint" issue (paint lost!) on my fairing, so been taking care of that. Saw the Adhesion promoter and thought would give it a shot.
Goes on clear and wet, but some spots dried and looked like it was wanting to raise. It doesnt SEEM to want to flake off, but am holding off color/clear til I figure this out....so if anybody has scoop, please lemme know.
Used "KleanStrip" PrepAll Wax silicone and grease remover (Got from AutoBody Toolmart). Applied as per directions, in a heated garage (64 degrees on thermometer, 48% humidity), onto a room temp fairing.
Lifting or raising might not have been most accurate description. SOME spots on the fairing look like "wrinkle coat" (The Adhesion Promoter is clear, BTW).
The kicker is....this happened on the left side, as viewed from seat.....not RIGHT side where i spilled the fluid. Am letting it dry overnite and will try to sand it out and see what happened. Any other thoughts boys and girls????
I have used the Duplicolor adhesion Promoter, but only on a couple of small things.
I painted my model helo and RC car with duplicolor, using the adhesion promotor since the bodies are a white plastic.
I didn't have any problems. I sanded and cleaned with lacquer thinner, then sprayed on the promotor, the ground coat then the color coat.
I did make sure I followed the time lines, that's about it.
Good reading there......the Adhesion promoter instructions cal for "1 wet, full coat" Allow to dry 2-3 minutes followed by another "wet, full coat"
...."topcoat should be applied as soon as possible after drying, preferably within 10 minutes".
Maybe my "full, wet coats" were a bit too much so.
Guess I'll find out after I sand it out and start again.
Appreciate the info in that last post.....
I had used an adhesion promoter on a pair of sidecovers I stripped down to bare plastic. The adhesion promoter raised the surface, giving it a bit of a "fur". Ended up doing a lot of sanding and will never use it again. Since then, I've painted other bare plastic parts using automotive spray can primers and have had no problems. Always use a cleaner such as Duplicolor before painting, makes a big difference in adhesion and smoothness.
I used the Adhesion Promoter on my Yamaha Side Covers, Rear Fender, and Front Fender. The stuff worked great atleast for me with a clean finish to primer. I would use the exact timelines though, because I didn't let it sit long before putting the base coat on these parts. I am planning on using on the KZ's side covers again, so definately had a good experience, plus I never had to sand, so it did come out good.
