ATM Road Primer is a high solids content water base primer designed to increase the adhesion of ATM Removable and Permanent Tape to concrete and asphalt surfaces. ATM Road Primer provides a tacky surface during instillation to improve the initial bond between tape and road surface. This Primer is optional for removable tape applications but is required to be used in combination with ATM 300 highway tape, ATM 400 highway tape, ATM MaxVision 300 highway tape and ATM Rumble strip.
Each batch is tested to assure compliance with stringent ATM quality control specifications for viscosity and percent solids.
Composition: ATM Road Primer is a water based, polymeric product with a high solids content. Only the highest quality raw materials are used during the manufacturing process.
Applicability To Pavement Surfaces: ATM Road Primer shall be applied to clean and to dry surfaces in accordance with the manufacturer’s recommendations. This product is designed to be applied at temperatures above 40°F (5°C). See Manufacturer's Application Instructions included in each box highway tape.
Adhesion: ATM Road Primer will adhere to Portland cement concrete or asphalt roadway surfaces when applied according to the manufacturer’s recommended procedures and must be completely dry before highway tape is added.
|Brookfield Viscosity||25 cps @ 75° F|
ATM Road Primer, when applied according to the manufacturer’s recommendations, shall provide a minimum service period of 12 months for removable applications and a minimum service period of 24 months for permanent applications.
In snow removal areas, plowing may shorten primer and ATM highway tape’s life cycle.
ATM Road Primer will cover approximately 165 sq feet depending on road surface. Spray should be at least one inch wider on each side of the chosen highway tape width. (ex: 6 inch spray for 4 inch tape)
If an installer has questions concerning the types of surfaces and/or the weather conditions where primer should be used with ATM highway tape, they may contact their local ATM Regional Manager or 252-536-2574 ext. 5138. DO NOT ALLOW ATM WATER BASE ROAD PRIMER to FREEZE
