Answer

Yes, it is a 1-part primer. It is very volatile, so needs good ventilation. You paint it on, wait 20 minutes, then proceed with the SikaFlex. The primer, once opened, has a shelf life of about 2 weeks at most -- it begins to harden in the can. I did a test: I took a 1/4 inch thick piece of plexiglas, about 3/4 inch wide and about 3 inches long, and a piece of 1/8 inch thick aluminum, about 3/4 inch wide. I put the primer on both pieces, waited 20 minutes, then used the black Sika Flex to glue them together with about 1/32 inch thick of Sika Flex between, waited a week, then tried to pull them apart -- impossible. I then put the aluminum in a heavy vice, and used a large channel lock to twist the plixiglas piece, thus applying pure shear force on the SikaFlex -- the primer held tenaciously to both sides-- the SikaFlex itself sheared, but it took very excessive force to shear it. Good stuff.

I used it several years ago to prime and silkscreen the black opaque areas on acrylic port windows on my sailboat before I sealed it to the fiberglass.. Its one part and black and I brushed it on the areas I cut away the protection paper from with a razor knife. I recall it drying quiclkly and doing 2 coats. I found the instructions online at the Sika site. Hope this help.

Answer

It is a base primer. It is what makes the bond to the base in my case fiberglass. I used it to install new windows on mt boat without screws. You can go to the Sikaflex web site and get all the spects. They say it can be strecheded like major times it resting state and not break it's bond. The first set of windows have been in six years and ( knock on wood) all is good so far. You just need to shield from the sun best you can. I painted over it like they suggest and it has had now leaks so far. I sleep under them every night. We are in the DR right out for the next couple of years we hope. This is our eighth year living aboard and starting our second year full time cursing. Gary

Answer

There is a cleaner product that should be used to prepare the surface for the primer. Clean and scuff the surface that is to receive the primer. Apply the cleaner product and let dry. Apply the primer and let dry. At least that is how I remember it. JP

Answer

It is a one part primer. First I used the SikaCleaner 226 Then I applied the SikaPrimer 209 Then without delay I used the Sikaflex295 UV Black There is a max time allowed between the primer and the 295. I found the instructions at the Sikaflex web site and in other places also using Google.

Answer

It is a one part primer and I think the instructions are on the adhesive part of the system. It has been a while since I have used it. Scott

Answered on 11/14/2011 by SCOTT WOODWARD

Answer

The Primer is simply shaken well, then applied directly to the clean surface you wish to bond. If you are looking for instructions on its use, I beleive you can find them on Sika's website or simply call Jamestown and perhaps they can point you to a place on their website that would have the directions for usage.

Question

do you have to use 209d when bonding acrylic windows to wood and epoxy ?

Asked on 05/20/2014 by Undisclosed

Top Answer

Yes, fiberglass, wood, or plastic. It is used prior to applying Sikaflex 295. The product has a short shelf life also.

Well, it worked great for us, but we were bonding acrylic to aluminum. No experience with using it on wood or epoxy, but i would think Sika would address that on their web site.

Answer

Frankly I have no clue. I used this product to bond a plexiglas canopy to my aircraft's 2024 alloy aluminum structure. I didn't attempt the application you describe, but it's working great on my aircraft. Good luck!

Answered on 05/21/2014 by SIDNEY MAYEUX

Answer

Sorry, I have only used the product to bond acrylic to aluminum however, I suspect it may have an equal effect on the acrylic as to any other material. I'd use it regardless of the materials if for no other reason than I don't want to do it over.

Question

open time on the 209D primer ?

Asked on 05/01/2012 by Undisclosed

Top Answer

I'm not sure if I am answering the question being asked, but here goes: By "open time" I assume you mean the working time before the solvents evaporate and the application swab starts to drag as the primer dries. I would describe it as very fast - one pass only and have everything masked off and ready to go before you start. This was under my particular conditions or temperature and humidity; other conditions may yield longer working times. I used this as part of the process of adhering new ports to my sailboat and it worked beautifully. I used only Sika adhesive and primer - no mechanical fastenings. I hope this helps. Dave

I don't see the small "stick" style 209 listed. Do you still carry that?

Asked on 11/15/2014 by Darwin Barrie

Top Answer

If you are looking for what's in the attached picture, it's not a stick. More like a little aluminum bottle.
