Glossy Surfaces – Although Stix® is formulated to be applied to hard to coat surfaces without the need for sanding, it is recommended that proper surface preparation still be completed to enhance adhesion properties. Surfaces such as Formica®, ceramic tile and glossy painted surfaces should be properly de-glossed. Once applied, allow Stix® to cure for approximately 3 to 4 days to achieve maximum resistance to scrape off. However, Stix® may be top-coated with a quality latex or oilbased finish

Frequently Asked Questions:
INSL-X Stix Waterborne Bonding Primer

1. What is Stix primer used for?

Stix primer is a high-quality waterborne acrylic urethane primer/sealer. It's designed to provide unparalleled adhesion on a variety of surfaces, including challenging ones like PVC, vinyl, plastic, glass, and painted surfaces. It's suitable for both interior and exterior applications, ensuring a firm foundation for your topcoat.

2. How to use stix waterborne bonding primer?

  1. Ensure the surface is clean, dry, and free from any contaminants.
  2. Stir the primer well before application.
  3. Apply using a brush, roller, or spray equipment.
  4. Allow it to dry for at least 3-4 hours before applying the topcoat. Ensure the environment is within the recommended temperature range for optimal results.

3. How long do you let Stix primer dry?

For optimal results, allow Stix primer to dry for a minimum of 3-4 hours before applying the topcoat. However, drying times can vary based on environmental conditions like humidity and temperature. Always refer to the product label for specific drying times.

4. Is Stix primer good for cabinets?

Absolutely! Stix primer is an excellent choice for cabinets due to its superior adhesion properties. It ensures a smooth and durable foundation, especially on surfaces that are often glossy or challenging to coat, making it ideal for kitchen and bathroom cabinets.

5. What is the difference between primer and bonding primer?

While both primers prepare surfaces for painting, a bonding primer offers superior adhesion, especially on challenging surfaces. Bonding primers, like Stix, are formulated to grip onto surfaces that regular primers might struggle with, such as glossy tiles, PVC, or previously painted surfaces.

6. Do I need to sand before using Stix primer?

While Stix primer boasts excellent adhesion properties, it's always recommended to lightly sand glossy or smooth surfaces for the best results. Sanding ensures maximum grip and a smoother finish. However, always clean the surface of any dust or debris before applying the primer.
