Have a really tricky surface to paint? Our Ultra Grip™ allows for Fusion™ to adhere to surfaces that are typically not for painting such as a lacquered surface, laminate, metal or glass.
This water based emulsion increases the adhesion of Fusion™ colours to glossy, hard to grip surfaces. Milky when wet, dries translucent with very good clarity. Test your methods and product combinations prior to applying in order to ensure desired effects. For optimum adhesion, clean the surface to be painted with T.S.P and sand lightly to roughen the surface.
To use: Apply one coat. Allow to dry for 12 hours before applying subsequent coats of Fusion™ colours. Clean up with water. Learn more about the benefits of Ultra Grip™ on our blog!
How to Use: Apply a coat of Ultra Grip after you have lightly sanded and cleaned your surface. Be sure to remove any wax or pledge that may have been pre-exiting as those coatings really like to repel anything applied. Allow Ultra Grip to dry for 12 hours for best results on those super tricky surfaces, then continue with Fusion Mineral Paint. If you do not wish to wait the 12 hours, in most cases you will be fine painting just after a couple of hours, however if your surface is exceptionally tricky and slick, when you add another coat of paint over top of the ultra grip, you may re-active it as you have not allowed it enough time to cute. Remember these are water based coatings with no harmful chemicals or solvents, the way it cures it through the evaporation of water. If you apply another coat of “water”, paint of top, you’re not allowing the ultra grip enough time to do its job. If you allow for the proper curing time, you won’t be disappointed! Think of starting your project at night, applying your Ultra Grip and then coming back in the morning to apply your paint.
* Please note that Ultra Grip is not intended to seal in stains. We recommend Zinsser Clear Shellac to seal in stains or knots.
Fun Fact- Ultra Grip dries clear!
Common question: Can I mix Ultra Grip in with Fusion Mineral Paint?
You can, however keep in mind that Ultra Grip is 100% pure resin, so adding paint to it will essentially make it less effective. Best to apply your Ultra Grip first, then Fusion Mineral Paint, which will bind to the surface of the Ultra Grip after.
