  • Best Practices for Dow P5200 Adhesion Promoter Red

    *See Terms of Use Below

    1. Surface Preparation

      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 degreased with Dow Corning ® brand OS Fluids, naphtha, mineral spirits, methyl ethyl ketone (MEK) 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.

    2. Application

      These products should be applied in a very light, even coat by wiping, dipping or spraying. Excess material should be wiped off to avoid over-application, 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.

      If this product is used as a cleaner and primer, the two-cloth wipe method of cleaning must be used. Using a cloth, apply a thin film of Dow Corning P5200 Adhesion Promoter to a clean, non-porous surfaces and immediately wipe the primed area down with a second clean, dry cloth.

      If this product is used only as a primer, apply Dow Corning P5200 Adhesion Promoter to clean surfaces in a thin film using a cloth or brush before application of backer rod. Sealant may be applied after primer has had time to dry (30 minutes in cold conditions, 10 minutes in warm conditions).

      When this product is used in shop in conjunction with structural silicone, adhesion of the structurally glazed units must be verified before units are shipped to the jobsite. Specified daily adhesion testing and documentation are mandatory to avoid transportation of units that may not have developed full adhesion.

    3. 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 (except in the case of Dow Corning 1593 Cleaner/Primer, where the solvent does not evaporate at all), 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.
