Trenton Wax-Tape Primer, White, 1-Gallon Can 101-60205


Trenton Wax-Tape Primer (White) displaces moisture and wets the surface to ensure adhesion of Trenton corrosion protection tapes. These are Trenton #1 Wax-Tape for below ground use and Trenton #2 Wax-Tape for above ground use. Trenton Wax-Tape Primer (White) has a paste-like consistency. It is a blend of microcrystalline waxes, plasticizers, and corrosion inhibitors (no clay fillers.

A primer penetrates surface rust in preparation for the application of Wax-Tapes, which means that field applicators only need to use a wire brush to prepare the surface. Primers thoroughly wet the surface of the pipe and require no specific surface profile or anchor pattern for proper adhesion. Trenton primers are required to create an effective anticorrosion system.
