The Best Bonding Primer You Can Buy! STIX® Acrylic Primer

September 03, 2015 2 min read

Stix® Waterborne Bonding Primer | JC Licht

Don’t think you can paint over stained cabinets, doors and trim without extensive prep work like sanding and stripping? Don’t think you can paint fiberglass entrance doors or ceramic tiles without the topcoat peeling? Think again! With Stix® Waterborne Bonding Primer from Insl-x®, you can successfully apply paint to almost any interior or exterior surface.

Stix® Waterborne Bonding Primer available at JC Licht

Stix® Waterborne Bonding Primer is a premium quality, waterborne, acrylic urethane primer/sealer with unparalleled adhesion to the most challenging surfaces, including PVC, Vinyl, Plastic, Glass, Tile, Glazed Block, Glossy Paints, Pre-Coated Siding, Fiberglass, and Galvanized Metals. Stix is also ideal for use on plaster, drywall, wood, and nonferrous metals, where a low ambient or surface temperature would present a problem for conventional primers. Stix offers an extremely hard film when cured. It can be used on interior and exterior surfaces, and topcoated with almost any type of material including Alkyd, Acrylic Latex, Urethane, Epoxy, and Lacquer Finishes. Stix is a low VOC primer, which levels to a smooth surface and cleans up with soap and water.

We think Stix is the best bonding primer you can buy. But don’t just take our word for it. Over 70% of product reviews on the internet highly recommend this product. Here are just a few examples of what people are saying about Stix.

“Not only has this been the best bonding primer (I have done my kitchen cabinets with this and Ben Moore paint and 2.5 years later there are no scratches or chips!), it is water based for easy clean-up. If you ever wanted to paint something that you thought paint wouldn’t stick to, this is your product!”

“We decided that our “stained and polyurethaned” woodwork looked too dated and a little worn. However, we had major concerns about painting it white … could we get that paint to stick or would it eventually just peel off the polyurethane? And if we really sanded it to remove the poly, would the underlying stain bleed through the paint? Fortunately our favorite paint store sold us Stix and it worked like a charm.”

As with any painting project, proper surface preparation is required for a successful outcome. Consult your local J.C. Licht in-store sales associate for expert advice on how to prepare the surface, apply Stix primer and choose the best topcoat for results that meet and exceed your expectations.
