Introducing Zinsser BONDZ Maximum Adhesion Primer Vernon Hills, IL – Rust-Oleum Corporation is pleased to announce the launch of Zinsser BONDZ Maximum Adhesion Primer. BONDZ is specifically formulated to bond any topcoat to difficult to paint surfaces. The fast drying urethane modified acrylic formula provides tenacious adhesion to hard, dense interior and exterior surfaces such as fiberglass, tile, glazed brick, aluminum, laminate and galvanized steel. BONDZ creates apermanent bond with any topcoat – including 2-part epoxies and solvent based paints -- for maximum adhesion while sealing the surface for a beautiful, uniform finish. “Zinsser primers are widely recognized for their ability to stick to all surfaces without sanding. BONDZ takes that legendary Zinsser adhesion to the next level,” said Brendan Steidle, brand manager for Rust-Oleum Corporation. “It firmly grips both the topcoat and the substrate to create a ‘sandwich effect’ that ensures maximum adhesion and great finish results.” BONDZ has exceptional flow and leveling and superior sag resistance. It exhibited eight times better resistance to wet adhesion loss than XIM UMA Bonder in ASTM D2486 in independent lab tests, so it’s ideal for use in damp or humid exterior conditions, where ordinary primers can soften and lose adhesion. BONDZ has a fast-drying formula that dries to the touch in 30 minutes and can be lightly sanded and topcoated in as little as two hours, saving time and money. The low odor, low VOC, water-base formula accepts all topcoats for a smooth, even sandable finish that resists peeling, cracking and blistering.
