Kelly-Moore Paint Company Inc. (San Carlos, Calif.) introduced Kel-Bond Ultra and Kel-Bond Adhesion Plus, described as low-VOC, high-performance interior/exterior water-borne primers-sealers offering strong adhesion and bonding properties.
The “Ultra” product is formulated to correct and smooth badly distressed or rough conditions, and is described as a low-odor primer-sealer formulated to provide exceptional bonding properties to a wide variety of surfaces. The primer provides a sound foundation for new-construction surfaces and to fill and smooth most rough and cracked conditions on previously painted surfaces.
The high-build coating film of up to 30 mils per coat addresses conditions such as alligatoring, checking, and wrinkling/blistering, and the product is well suited for smoothing wood trim, wood siding, hardboard, stucco, brick, fiberglass, aluminum, and galvanized metal, the company says. The fast-drying primer should only be recoated with flexible acrylic top-coats.
The “Adhesion Plus” product is a professional solution for treating difficult, non-porous surfaces, the company says. The product is formulated to provide strong adhesion over hard, dense, or glossy surfaces, and serves as a foundation coat for a variety of new and previously painted surfaces, where it is reported to offer excellent wet-adhesion and leveling properties. The primer-sealer is described as a solution for difficult surfaces such as aluminum and galvanized metals, PVC shutters and window trim, glass and glazed tiles, fiberglass, and silicone/polyester and Kynar siding.
The product is described as easy to apply and sand, low in odor, and recoatable in three hours with acrylic latex paints, alkyds, lacquers, two-component urethanes, or epoxy coatings.
