Activators, primers, and cleaners are substances widely used in adjoining different substrates together. Activators are chemicals intended to accelerate the curing rate, typically of solvent-based adhesives. Also referred to as adhesion promoters, primers are applied on substrates to form a film that will enhance the adhesion of adhesives to be applied. Cleaners, on the other hand, are compounds used to remove dirt, grease, oil, or any impurities, to prepare surfaces prior to the application of primers and adhesives. AIMS Industrial offers a wide selection of activators, primers, and cleaners for construction, carpentry, and metal fabrication use, among others.
