DESCRIPTION

RUISIL brand primers, prime coats and adhesion promoters are dilute solutions of silane coupling agents and other active ingredients. The surface reactive components typically must be applied in a very thin layer for best bonding. The solvents used in these products serve to deliver the active ingredients in a thin, uniform coating, enhance surface cleaning, and in some cases, aid in the penetration of the active ingredients into the bonding surface. Primers can be used to increase design flexibility, reduce total costs or increase performance reliability of electronic systems. They do this by enabling adhesion to lower-cost substrates or lower temperature processes which reduce energy budgets, among other possibilities.

APPLICATION 

Enhances bonding/adhesion of  RTV and heat cure silicones to many metals, ceramics and some plastics.

APPLICATION METHODS

● Apply in a very light, even coat by wiping, dipping or spraying.

● Excess material should be wiped off to avoid overapplication.

● Diluting by a factor of 2 to 4 with additional solvent may avoid excessive build-up.

HOW TO USE

These products should be applied in a very light, even coat by wiping, dipping or spraying. Excess material should be wiped off to avoid overapplication,which generally appears as a white, chalky surface. When dip or spray coating, diluting by a factor of 2 to 4 with additional solvent may avoid excessive build-up. Apply additional cleaner/primer to the cloth every 3 to 5 minutes to ensure fresh material can react with the substrate.

PREPARING SURFACES

The active ingredients must thoroughly wet out and coat the bonding surfaces. Mild abrasion, solvent cleaning, plasma, corona discharge and other pre-treatments have been used to clean and enhance surface reactivity to bonding. In general, light surface abrasion is recommended whenever possible, because it promotes good cleaning and increases the surface area for bonding. Surfaces should be cleaned and/or other suitable solvents that will remove oils and other contaminants that may be present. A final surface wipe with acetone or IPA may also be helpful. Different cleaning techniques may give better results than others. Users should determine the best technique for their applications. For especially difficult-to-bond-to surfaces, it may be necessary to increase the surface reactivity by chemical etchants or oxidizers, or by exposing the surface to UV, corona, plasma or flame sources. Allow solvents to completely evaporate before applying the primer.

PROCESSING/CURING

These products require moisture in the air to cure, and are generally cured at room temperature and in a range of 20 to 90 percent relative humidity for 1 to 2 hours. Low humidity and/or low temperature conditions require longer cure times. Mild heat acceleration of the cure rate may be possible but temperatures above 60°C (140°F) are not recommended. During application, the carrier solvent typically evaporates off quickly, allowing the active ingredients to begin to react with atmospheric moisture and bonding surfaces. For optimal bonding, different cure times may be required for different temperature and humidity conditions. Users should determine the best cure schedule and conditions for their applications. The desired silicone elastomer should be applied after the primer, prime coat or adhesion promoter has fully cured.

PACKAGING INFORMATION

In general, RUISIL primers, prime coats and adhesion promoters are supplied in nominal 1-gallon (3.8-L) and 13.5-fl oz (400-mL) or 1-pint (473-mL) containers, net volume. Not all products may be available in all packages and some additional packages may be available for certain products.
