Ultra Grip/Bonding Agent

From: £15.99

Do you have a really tricky surface to paint? Our Ultra Grip/Bonding Agent allows for Fusion™ to adhere to surfaces that are typically not for painting, such as a lacquered surface, melamine, thermofoil or laminate. Our non-toxic, water-based Ultra Grip™ makes painting the impossible – possible!

How do I use Ultra Grip™?

You can apply Ultra Grip™ using a brush, a roller, an applicator pad, or a sponge. No matter what you apply it with, be aware that Ultra Grip™ will hold texture, and that texture can show through to the final layer of Fusion Mineral Paint. To avoid this, ensure you apply Ultra Grip™ in a very thin layer. The product is milky in the bottle but should be clear when applied. Let it dry 12-24 hours before painting for best results.

When do I use Ultra Grip™?

Ultra Grip™ can be used to make the impossible possible. Use it on surfaces that you can’t sand, such as thermofoil or some laminates, or even really detailed surfaces that are too difficult to scuff. A good way to tell if you need Ultra Grip™ is to paint a test area with just Fusion. If the paint laces or beads, you likely need Ultra Grip™.

Will it dry clear?

Yes, it will! This means that if you have a piece you want to distress to show the original finish but it is too difficult to sand, you can use Ultra Grip™ with no worries.

Is Ultra Grip™ a primer?

Ultra Grip™ is an adhesion primer, so it helps Fusion stick to slippery surfaces. It is not a transition primer for painting over dark or bright colours. For that, we recommend Sterling or another light grey. Ultra Grip™ will also not stop bleed-through from tannins or rust. For that, we recommend Zinsser BIN shellac-based primer.
