The Montana POLYSTYRENE PRIMER is the perfect tool for the job when you want to create a neutral surface of which to apply further coatings onto polystyrene and styrofoam based surfaces. The Montana POLYSTYRENE PRIMER is ideal for sealing and preparing polystyrene and styrofoam based materials for the efficient application of further color coats. The POLYSTYRENE PRIMER assists in adhesion, maximizes coverage of further coatings, seals porous surfaces and resists against agitation of further solvent based coatings when all surface holes are covered. The Montana PLASTIC PRIMER also increases the durability of polystyrene/ Styrofoam surfaces once coated. Due to the varied chemical make-up of polystyrene, we suggest trialing on a non-visible area of your material to test for compatibility. You can apply any Montana-Cans color,TECH or EFFECT spray over the POLYSTYRENE PRIMER once it has dried and cured. Montana POLYSTYRENE PRIMER will increase the intensity and longevity of the coatings applied over it. Curing time is 24 or more hours depending on ambient temperature and moisture levels. The Montana POLYSTYRENE PRIMER is a beige/brown colored, matte coating, in a Nitro-Combi based composition which achieves a relatively neutral color base for the application of any of the Montana GOLD, Montana BLACK or Montana WHITE color range. Smooth, even application is effortless thanks to the Montana FLAT JET Medium cap which is standard on the can. To vary the spray application, why not try the Montana FLAT JET WIDE, the FAT CAP GOLD/BLACK or any of the Montana LEVEL 1-3 caps. Remember to keep your polystyrene projects away from extreme heat or flames. Ensure all surfaces are completely sealed and air holes closed coated. The rougher and more air holes the substrate has, the more coats of POLYSTYRENE PRIMER required for complete protection against further solvent based color coatings.

USE: Apply primer in several thin layers spraying before the previous coat is fully dry, but with 1 or 2 minutes between each pass. Further coats might require a drying time of 24 hours or more depending on substrate. Always test spray on a non-visible area to check compatibility of lacquer or paint. For optimal lifespan, store cans always with the nozzle on.

FAQ
FAQ

When should I use a primer?

The goal of priming is to create a neutral surface of which to apply other coatings onto that will have the longest possible lifespan and the most aesthetic finish as desired. Montana Primers are for the pre-treatment and preparation of surfaces and will offer the greatest adhesion and protection to apply further coatings onto.

When do I use Montana PRIMER's?

Montana PRIMER’s are all-round surface preparers that can be used on plastics, metal, styrofoam, leather, cardboard, wood and many other materials. We suggest trialing on a non visible area of your material to test for compatibility

Which Montana PRIMER do I use when?

There are four different Montana PRIMER’s that can be used for different surfaces as listed below:

Montana PLASTIC PRIMER T2000:

To be used on some plastics and acrylic based surfaces. Clear colored spray. Montana PLASTIC PRIMER is a surface preparer that can be used on the following hard plastics: polyurethane (PUR), polystyrene (PS), polyamide (PA), polypropylene rubber, modified (EPDM), acrylic butadiene styrene plastics (ABS),
 glass-fibre reinforced plastics (GfK), hard polyvinyl chloride (Hard-PVC). Always trial on non-visible area of your material to check for compatibility!

Montana POLYSTYRENE PRIMER T2200:

To be used on most polystyrene and styrofoam surfaces. Cream colored spray. Always trial on non-visible area of your material to check for compatibility!

Montana UNIVERSAL PRIMER T2300:

To be used on concrete, brick, terra-cotta, ceramic, leather, cardboard, wood and many other materials. White colored spray.

Montana METAL PRIMER T2400:

To be used on metal (iron or brass) or mineral surfaces. Dark-brown colored spray. Please note the Metal Primer unsuitable for priming aluminum.

How do I start using my Montana PRIMER?

Remove the spray nozzle and turn the can upside down. Strike with your palm allowing safety ring to fall out. Shake vigorously for 2-3 minutes ensuring you can hear the mixing balls moving freely. Replace the cap back onto the top of the can valve and trigger away from substrate to test. If flowing freely you can start painting.

Which coatings can apply over Montana PRIMER’s?

You can apply any Montana-Cans color, tech or effect spray over Montana PRIMER’s once they are dried and cured. They will increase adhesion, help seal your substrates, create a more even surface and increase the longevity of the coatings applied over it.

Can I sand it to my desired surface finish?

Yes. You can sand Montana PRIMER’s once they are dry. Depending on the grade of the sand paper, smooth or rough surfaces can be achieved.

How long do Montana Montana PRIMER’s take to dry?

Drying times vary due to the PRIMER and the context it is being used. They usually require 15-20 minutes to be dust dry. Curing time can vary depending on substrate, ambient temperature, humidity levels and thickness of coats applied.

Can I use other coatings on Montana PRIMER’s other then sprays?

Yes. It is possible to use other coatings over Montana PRIMER’s spray once they are cured. We suggest always test on a non-visible are of the work for compatibility.

When do I use Montana POLYSTYRENE PRIMER?

Montana POLYSTYRENE PRIMER is a surface preparer that can be used on polystyrene, styrofoam and other materials. The POLYSTYRENE PRIMER is ideal for preparing polystyrene, foams and construction foams for pre-treatment of applying color coatings. As some paints contain solvents, which penetrate and agitate foams. This can lead to damage and melting of your substrate. We suggest trialing on a non-visible area of your material to test for compatibility.

Replace the cap back onto the top of the can valve and trigger away from substrate to test. If flowing freely you can start painting.

Which coatings can apply over the PLASTIC PRIMER?

You can apply any Montana-Cans color, tech or effect spray over the PLASTIC PRIMER once it has dried. It will increase adhesion, help seal your substrate, create a more even surface and increase the longevity of the coatings applied over it.

What do I need to look out for when using my PLASTIC PRIMER?

PLASTIC PRIMER can seal the surface of most foams for the application of further coatings. It is important that you ensure that the complete surface of your foam is sealed leaving no pin holes or air openings. This avoids any solvents reaching the raw foam and agitating it. You can ensure complete sealing by applying multiple thin layers.

Why did my foam melt when I applied my PLASTIC PRIMER?

Due tot he endless chemical possibilities that manufacturers of foams can use, PLASTIC PRIMER could penetrate low quality or poorly constructed foams if not compatible, applied too close, too quickly or not allowed to dry. We suggest trialing on a non-visible area of your material to test for compatibility.

How long does Montana PLASTIC PRIMER spray take to dry?

Drying time is usually 15-20 minutes but can vary depending on the quality of the substrate, ambient temperature, humidity levels and thickness of coats applied.

Can I use other coatings on it other then sprays?

Yes. It is possible to use other coatings over PLASTIC PRIMER spray once it is dry. Please note applying solvent based coatings may agitate the foam surface regardless of preparation. We suggest always test on a non-visible are of the work for compatibility.
