Have a really tricky surface to paint? Ultra Grip allows for Fusion™ to adhere to surfaces that are typically not for painting such as a lacquered surface, Melamine, laminate, metal or glass.
Prepping these slick high gloss manufactured surfaces for paint can be tricky, however not impossible. Fusion has you covered! We have an adhesion primer for impossible to paint surfaces. Ultra Grip is our 100% acrylic resin-based adhesion primer. Be sure to remember your first step is always cleaning with TSP Alternative, apply 1 to 2 very thin coats of Ultra Grip with a roller or high quality synthetic bristle brush and leave to dry overnight or at least ( 12 hrs ) for best results. Allow minimum 2 hours between coats of Ultra Grip. The paint will now adhere to the surface with no problems. See this blog post
How do you know if you need Ultra Grip?
Do a test paint patch, if you see separation like this – we call it lacing, then there is something on the surface like a wax residue or factory coating like Teflon. Ensure you’ve cleaned your piece well with TSP Alternative, do your test patch and if it laces, apply 1-2 coats of Ultra Grip. The second coat of Ultra Grip should stop lacing and your paint will adhere beautifully.
Applying Ultra Grip with an applicator pad or a damp car sponge will ensure a smooth application. This product is slightly thicker and likes to hold texture so be sure to apply it smoothly.
